For me it is, after every 30 mins i have an itch to open the site and scan through the new topics/answers.
I have a tough time being aware of whose passing by my cubical and just keep praying that he/she doesnt give comments like: "Dude, today you will help all IT professionals it seems!!" , "Man, you are really helpful!" and "Oh boy, there goes the rancher!"

Yes, even I've been an addictive user of the ranch and I never close it, every 5 minutes I just hit the F5 button...This site is truly amazing to be around!

Oh yeah, for me too.
I may loose my job if i spend most of my time over here
However, i am sure javaranch will give me a new one if it so happens !!!
Hey, so which is you guys favourite forum?
Mine is Threads & Synchronization. However, i do see EJB, Distributed Java, I/O, Advanced Java and Security forums also. Of course, not to forget Meaningless drivel and also Job discussion. Hmmm ... if i would have said all forums, this post would have been smaller
Should we move this post to Javaranch forum ???

apigee, a better way to API!

I have my favorite forumz on along with a couple dozen techie blogs. I have a terrible time ever closing it.
