Actually by "every few minutes" Barry means about every 13 minutes on average from 9:34 am to 12:22 pm (14 posts), followed by an hour's lunch break; then about one every 26 minutes until a bit before 3 pm (4 posts), at which point I went out for a stroll on the boardwalk (my second for the day, the first having been in the early morning after program (I'm very fair- skinned, so I try to avoid going out when the sun is high). Then I did some work from about a quarter after 4, when I got back, until around 5:00, when I did my program again, then worked some more until I knocked off for the day at 8:30, having made 3 posts (average 1 per hour and a half), and then one final post at 11:37 before I went to bed. My actual working hours yesterday were those 3 late afternoon-evening hours. The morning hours when I was posting frequently were personal time, catching up on email, paying bills, making phone calls, and so on--short tasks with posts sandwiched in between. The early afternoon hours were recreational, mostly surfing and online shopping, with a few posts here and there. I was also doing some dinner preparations for when some came over after I was finished working at 8:30. > After that I'm sure it was possible for her to go > outside and get some sun, say between 5:00 pm her time > and sunset, when she came back and making another few > posts. Barry has a bit of trouble with the time zone difference between the U.S. and France; I was out from a little before 3 till a little after 4. And as noted, he also has a rather expansive view of "every few minutes." That's a fairly typical day for me, as it happens. The nice thing about working for myself is that I can make up my own schedule as I go along, post or surf whenever I need a little break without anybody looking over my shoulder, take longer breaks and relax or go out or go shopping when the mood strikes me, work when I feel like it. > > As for "gone all cunty," well, that's definitely fair > and accurate, so carry on... :-) > To subscribe, send a message to: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Or go to: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/FairfieldLife/ and click 'Join This Group!'
