    I'm becoming ever more amazed about how many of you find the time to post on this forum, let alone others as well. I just wish I could fiind all the time to read and post more. Razor do you ever leave the house :D

    It's difficult to fit this one in sometimes around AV123, Hifchoice, AVS and a couple of others that I browse. ;)

    I should add that the stats indicate that I only manage 3.99 posts a day. :)

    8hrs every weekday in front of a PC of which Iam busy for only 50% of the time.

    I would say my work load comes in all at once tho so My work always starts coming in at lunchtime and I work hard in the afternoon to get it resolved so Iam free in the mornings to surf the net. :smashin: :D

    I run my own businees and have a fair bit of spare time on my hands. I swap between work and forums. Not good for the concentration mind.

    Some days I have plenty of time others I dont. It all depends. I get insomnia a fair bit so I post a fair bit late at night. I hate going to bed early. :)

    Work 13hr shifts in Soho london, working 7 days every 2 weeks. I spend half my time arsing on the PC, and the other half blowing my brains trying to fix impossibly complicated AV/IT systems.

    This also means that I am home 7 days every two weeks... And If I havn't got any projects on the go, or playing Rugby, I watch films, and surf the net when the missis is working!

    Work is fine about net access as long as the work gets done... and I'm brilliant and they don't deserve me so they let me be.

    according to my profile im at 3.40 posts per day, which isnt bad i dont think because i expected it to be higher for some reason. i tend to browse more than post unlike some ive seen. seens some crackers ie people joined in 2005 and have post counts that are in the 1000's :) no offense to the people its how they want to spend their time. ive been posting more in the past 2 months as ive been looking for employment after finishing uni so i tend to veer from the job sites to this forum :) this aint going to get me a job :(

    i post here because i'm addicted to the place - simple as that. i think of it a virtual chippy. i come on the board and see whose kicking about - Razor is always here and is good for a laugh.

    I've made some great friends and met some fantastic xbox live players.

    i find the time because i maske the time. i dont have any ankle biters and Mrs D and myself are fairly settled so i dont have to many pressures on my time (except for the mountain of unwatched dvds :D )

    I work some really weird shifts at work. During this time I have acsess to a pc and pop in and out of the froums during the day. My post count per day will vary however. If there is a lot of stuff going on that I know about or have an interst in I will post more. Over the last couple of days however I have been really busy at work and also have not had much to say :D

    Well over the last couple of days I have really struggled to find stuff on the forum that I can add my thoughts to. :D

    I was so tired from work the other day, when I tried to think of possible threads to start, my mind went blank. :eek: Not good, I dont like all this having to actually do some work in my job malarky :rotfl: :rotfl:
