as always, please point me to the relevant thread, if this has already been discussed…
but it just crossed my mind - after having lived alone for the last 18 years, and never giving a fuck, what “cookies” or “History” were on my computer (accidentally-downloaded viruses aside, obviously - though moreso for the “out of pocket expense” of having to get it repaired, rather than the “embarrassment” factor)…
but how do married couples treat “the computer” deal? Is there one home computer in the house, and everyone shares it? Or are we in a “laptop age”, where Mike, Carol, Greg, and Marcia all have their own… and eventually Peter, Jan, Bobby, and Cindy will as well?
What if Carol, Greg, Marcia, and Alice are all out of town to visit Grandma for the weekend - does Mike just hang back, and maybe check out some porn on the family computer for a night, then spend the next 12 hours deleting all the cookies/History?
What about your personal email/SDMB account? Do you log in, check your emails/messages, then make double-damn sure you logout of your account, so your spouse can then log in from scratch?
Do you share passwords/email-addresses (not in the “email us at MikeandCarol’@'BradyBunch.com” way, but do you have access to each other’s accounts?)
This sort of thing would fascinate me to read about, and again - this HAS to have been discussed before (and if it has, please point me that direction and we’ll call this thread “locked”)
