    How often do you check the boards. Do you check here every now and then or do you check back every 10 minutes?

    I have a smart phone that is dedicated to TFW. I'm constantly checking these boards.

    Whenever I'm at work, plus when I get home, if I'm monitoring a hot thread.

    Once a day, minimum. I have busy spurts and times of absolute nothing at work, so I kill time here or on Twitter. Or lately, MentalFloss.

    I can go days of the board though, if I'm out and about on weekends and such.

    Whenever I'm at a computer, really. For example, right now I am in English 101 class at school.

    I don't check TFW at all. But the board here is stalking me so it keeps finding me. Can't get away from the damn place. It tracks me down every day.

    Not as often as you think, but often enough to have a decent grasp on a large amount of what is going on.

    I always have a TFW-tab open while I'm at work, and check certain boards through-out the day.

    Pretty much all the time I'm on my computer.

    I lol'd nearly all the votes being "Very Often."

    I've got the boards open on my computer multiple hours each day, nearly every day. if i'm on vacation, i don't check very often, but otherwise i check it when i have a few minutes to spare, or if there's something going on.

    on my phone, i have an entire group of quick links, to get the the places i check the most often, like sightings and the Prime forum.

    Multiple times a day but I don't post as often as I used to. On some occasions though, I'm on a roll.
