    here too, it sucks doesn't it?
    I took one call in an 8 hour shift, that's a lot of time to surf forums (I'm 10pm to 6am)

    9-7 (EST) 7 on, 7 off. A fair amount of slack time, but often busy as well.

    Oh, the 7 on 7 off thing is nice. Wish I could do that, but I am THE night guy, no one to cover the 7 off part. I work alone [​IMG]

    Hey Jim!

    Do you still have the Sony Gear? Nice to see you around the boards.

    No, but I did read your message when I got up for work. I work 5am-2pm, and first thing I do when I get up is check my email, and the HTF (get the good deals that way.)

    No - but I'm awake and present here when most of you guys sleep (and vice versa).

    (Same goes for Adam Baratt, Andrew Markworthy, Steve Christou and Oscar Merkx, to name a few.)

    I'm online most of the night, usually. Not for work reasons, I just have a whacked out schedule. I sleep from 6am-1pm usually, then spend the afternoon doing work (and posting), then take the night off to watch movies or go out, or simply hang out online.

    I used to work 3:30PM - 12:00 AM although that was before I discovered HTF. Spent my time chatting with a Linux AOL clone.(sneaky way to chat and not get caught) However im back to a M-F 7:30AM - 4:00PM schedule.

    I don't think they care if I chat, the problem is the company firewall(s) they're smart, and seem to adapt. I used to be able to browse ebay by IP address, usually it'll load once now then block the IP. Smart buggers. [​IMG]

    I run my business from home and find the wee hours to my liking. Often on line and purusing HTF at 3-4 a.m. The stillness and deep quiet of midnight to dawn seem to enhance concentration and focus. Plus when I take a break, I get to walk outside and gaze at a sparkling sky.

    Hey Brandon, the TAs are still going strong. I imagine your remodeling has come quite a way.

    Me, too. I work swing, 4:30pm-1am. Don't go to bed till around 6am. It really sucks when you post in a thread around midnight, then come back a few hours later and no one's added anything!
