      How often do you take a break away from doing things on the internet?

      I myself will sit and do things on the internet in 30 minute intervals before getting up and going off to do something for a break away from a computer screen. I will either get up and go make a drink, get up and walk around the house doing a few bits or go and stand outside for 5 minutes to get some fresh air and stretch my legs.

      Unless I'm doing something important I usually move a way from PC at least once and hour for a cuppa or something.

      At work, I do some stretching hourly or walk around the office. I have 1hr lunch break and I always go out (if possible) and go window shopping :p. Sometimes I just walk just for the sake of it! And at home, well there's no pattern. Whenever I feel tired sitting, I take my break from the internet!

      I actually do not know exactly the hours or minutes interval but it was often. I will stand up and walk a little while specially if I feel like having cramps and I think that I have been sitting for long time. And I am also doing some simple stretches for my legs from time to time.

      Probably every hour or so to get a drink and maybe a biscuit, sometimes even having a 5-minute sleep out of boredom.

      For the big picture of internet-absence, I constantly hang out with friends, serve for Air Force ROTC, do a lot of filming and editing at the video studio I work at, and cherish life. For the situation of me at my desk on the web, I check my forums for about 20 minutes, listen to Wang Chung and Billy Idol while doing so, and then after that 20 minutes I sometimes make some Easy Mac and grab a Diet Coke. I work on my homemade movies, check the boards, and after about 30 minutes I work on studies and also maybe play some Die Hard Trilogy and call some buddies. These of course are days that I'm not working or hanging out.

      Sometimes I get bored of everything and just don't go on it as much and do other things; also if I get really into a video game or a TV show.... I will neglect everything else.
      I actually took a break from forums for the whole year of 2011.
