A study released this week by Jericho, N.Y.-based trade magazine VARBusiness says workaholism is epidemic in the tech industry, in which about one-fifth of computer professionals interviewed said they work most weekends.

Other highlights: Nearly half the respondents log between 50 and 70 office hours a week (8% confessed they do 70 hours or more); about one-third feel that work has affected their personal satisfaction and physical health; and 13% say it has affected their marriages.

VARBusiness, which is published by CMP Media, interviewed 335 technology professionals for the survey.
