How many of you complain about your spouse spending too much time using the microwave oven? Or, how many times have you said, "I think I'll go in the kitchen and use the sink?" Sounds pretty silly, doesn't it? After all, these are simply tools we use to do something else.
We need to remember that people can spend too much time on anything, to the detriment of school, family and friends. Too much time watching television, too much time working on a stamp collection, too much time playing golf.
Ever since the personal computer came along some people have treated it as a device unto itself. But like so many other things, what they are used for determines how bad or good they can be. Just like any other tool we use it for something. As I've often heard, it's not enough to simply be good. You have to be good for something.
