OK, a terrible thing has just occured...well, my parents are now setting time limits on my so-called "screen time"(this includes any computer or console), an hour and a half PER DAY (far behind the daily nutritional requirment of any gamer/power user)...the main reason they do this is because my mom beleives: computers are the work of the devil. The only reason we own one is because she needs it to teach some online classes. Also, we have an extremely outdated Compaq (64 MB RAM, Windows 98, you get the picture) and a fairly new Dell. The Compaq is used for my mom's email (that's it folks), and my parents have said before I can have it when they are done with it, but my mom is so attached to it she can't bear to install her email program on the main computer. :mad: This cannot be solved by buying my own computer, mainly because saving up the money for everything I want would take 1+ years and because they would just set more limits... I need some tips on psychology here because they have NEVER listened to my point of view (they just always have to be right) :mad: Or, revenge ideas... Maybe I shouldn't be complaining about this but it is a major issue to me and i'm pretty pissed about it...

Parents can do what they think is best for their children. I wouldn't try changing that. :uhm:

After seeing the response to this thread I'm starting to think it was a stupid idea...

I would hang out with friends more, and use the computer whenever you can.
