    What's the longest you've gone without your Mac?
    It's been about a month since I've even touched or seen my Powerbook, and now I finally have it in my hands again. How I've missed it so! I was in the process of moving and forgot it in my room, then left with a load of stuff and was supposed to come back the next day to get it, but ended up having to wait another 2 weeks to come down and get the rest of my stuff to move.. I brought it to my friend's room for some Quake 3 LAN action, and got a bit inebriated and forgot it in his room... So now a week and a half after that, I'm back at my school and I finally have it! What's the longest you've gone without touching your Mac?

    About 2 weeks. And even if it was a portable, I definitely wouldn't get too drunk to remember to bring it home!!!

    It wasn't that I was too drunk, just some stuff happened at that particular rez building and I didn't want to get involved, so I just left, and left it there. It was in the safe arms of a fellow Mac-user friend of mine who kept it safe for me.

    Cool
    Recently: 3 weeks, 1 day, 6 hours. NOT that I was counting.

    The longest I was away from my personal computers was 4 months.

    Both instances were caused by the same reason. I was busy traveliing in Australia. Well worth the separation!

    On my recent trip during Christmas, I missed having Mac access because I had to use my Visa card using a Windows Internet Cafe box. Veerry Scary!
