How long do you sweep?
I spend on average about 1 hour per day sweeping, as you call it. I would benefit from a high-speed connection, but I use dial-up. The difference in cost is simply not worth it to me.

My browser of choice for sweeping is IE 5.0 because of the autofil feature, which works great. I would try Roboform but I use a Macintosh; it's incompatible with my Powerbook. The autofil really is the next best thing.

Any other Mac users here?

We have a few Mac users and I am sure they will join in. I started out with dial-up but changed to a local cable ISP because their rates were just not that much higher than the dial up ISP. I don't know how I lived without the high speed connection . I enter lots of dailys and it took hours with dial up. But hey if you are happy thats all that counts.

Until I get up...oh you said "sweep!!!"

Well I think an easier form of that question is how many sweeps do you enter in a day? Here's why:

As Dee Dee mentioned, there is a big difference in speed between dial-up and DSL. If I was sweeping with a dial up I'd be on here from dawn to dusk just to get my daily sweeps in. With DSL it takes about three hours total.

So the time factor really does depend on connection speed I would think.

The difference between the price of a cable connection and a dial-up, at least in my area, is only about $10. With that extra $10 per month, I end up saving so many hours worth of time that it would probably be worth $50, maybe even more.

I won't even tell you how many hours a day I spend on sweeps.

How many do you enter per day
First thing I go to EzSweeps.com and the auto sweeps enter me in about 40 sweeps. Then I pick a few more there, and enter my mother using her screen name in about 45 sweeps. I carefully read the rules now to be sure I won't disqualify us with double entries at the same home address.

Then I come here, and do about 45 daily entries, some new single sweeps, my weeklies on Monday, monthlies on the first of the month. This means I average about 100 per day for myself, and 50 per day for my mother. Shouldn't I win something eventually? I've been doing this since September.

How many a day do you average?

Hi Bot Girl,

I feel a special kinship with you because you're a Mac user like me, and a new sweeper, too. I haven't won anything, and you don't sound any richer.

I see you use Auto fil. Me too. I also use a Powerbook. A DSL line would be nice, but I see you use a dial-up, just like me.

I'm getting a bit weirded out. Can it be we are posting here from an alternate universe? Are you made of anti-matter?

Your doppelganger,

Sweepy

Another post from the alternate universe of Mac users! I am also on the Mac, but using DSL. It makes my life much easier--keeps sweeping down to an hour or so a day. (At least until I met that wretched little time waster, Buddy Lee. Add 20 minutes for him. And tell him to send me some socks or something.)

Autofill is not a bad option, but I keep hoping Roboform is serious about finding someone to migrate their software to a Mac platform. I'll keep checking their website every month or so, just in case. And if I hear they've done it, I'll be the first one to post the update here!

I was only teasing Bot Girl up there. Luckily, I know her well; she has a good sense of humor. Actually, Bot Girl was my screen name before I changed it, so she only exists in an alternate universe.

Several of us have written to the company that produces Roboform, and they need a certain minimum of interest to move the program to the Mac. The best thing to do is to write to them and express your interest and urge them to hire a programmer to recode the software.
