    I was just curious. It's obvious from many posts that they are written from work.

    For a number of reasons, I never post from work. For one, I don't have time. For another, I don't want to start posting from work because if I start, I'd probably do it too often. Thirdly, I'm not real eager to publicize my screen name should somebody be walking by.

    I also seem to remember one user in particular got into a bit of trouble after posting frequently at work.

    No doubt the classic use of the fledgling sarcasm font.

    Its a rare case where I post at work. Usually I do it at home where I have more time to devote to Wlat jokes.

    I post some at work, during NFL Sundays or the NCAA Tournament, things like that. Basic nights, I try not to.

    If I am actually in the office then I post quite a bit at work, but not nearly as much as when Mrs. Angola! is working and I am home alone.
    Also, I just thought it was standard, at least at the smaller papers, for your coworkers to know who you are on here. I know my coworkers usernames at this shop and the last shop and they know mine.

    if you're posting at work, chances are your i.t. people know your screen name.

    Never. But then again, I have high standards of professionalism.

    My hours are ridiculously out of whack. No, really.

    I have to be in the office at 8 a.m. despite the fact most prep games don't get started until 7 p.m. or so. With coaches and players at school and/or work during daylight hours, there's, um, plenty of time to post.

    ME's reply to all this: "Everyone else comes in early. Why should you get to sleep in?" ::) ::) ::)

    Very seldom. I'll glance through it every now and again to see if anything is breaking while at work, or during a dead spot whyile I'm waiting on a game, but I do most of my postpadding from the comforts of home.

    Tell me you've sent your resume out in bulk since that response.
