    When do you have the most time on the forums?

    Pops, I'm taking a page out of your new book: Polling people to Death :D Enjoy your stay here instead of your little 8 week training course. :p

    BTW, I come here whenever possible, sometimes on weekends, especially when I am not on vacation and when I have class.

    My option wasn't there - never.

    I haven't been bored since I was about 15. That summer I spent an entire summer vacation bored out of my mind - so bored, in fact, that I think I broke through boredom and out the other side.

    Since then I've always been able to find *something* to do. It's got tricky recently, since I've been housebound with a smashed-up leg since the beginning of June, but I've discoovered that my new ability to sleep-on-demand helps a lot. If I feel I might be about to get bored, I lie on the bed and start reading a dry computer book (current fave is "Inside .NET IL Assembler") and within minutes I've nodded off.

    By the time I wake up again, the incipient boredom attack is over. It probably helps that I have GAD and thus find everyday life far too exciting too begin with. What most people would consider boring I consider a pleasant break.

    I haven't had a job for over a year, so I hope that's okay with you. No one is paying me to goof off.

    I also don't have much need to do much other than school at the moment. I was a workaholic. :(

    I usually get bored on the weekends when there aren't any new rumors and there aren't many people on the forums. If you are truly bored, check out bored.com for some boredom relie.

    Pretty much every day, I like Friday and Monday because more people are on here. On major events like MW or a product annoucement I just go to IRC because the forums get so crowded.
