View Full Version : Where is everybody???

-14th February 2004, 09:57
Ok, peeps - it's 10.55 am, and I'm the only one on the board - not even a guest is here to keep me company.

So - when DO most people use the forum? I log on when I pick me email up in the evening, or like now, when I'm about to do a bit more work (groan) whilst the washing machine does its job.

On other occasions I log on to see if anyone has the results of the comp we might just have arrived back from, and so on.

Any forum habits anyone wants to own up to??:confused: :grin:

i appear when im online, which is a rather alarming large amount of time.

i am normally online to talk to my friends (as opposed to meeting up with them)

so i just log on here!

-14th February 2004, 12:38
Im usaly on for the same reason as haleyjade. But im in america where the time zone difference is 5 difference.

But anyways is there a chat channle that we can join when where here because it may be nice to talk to some fencers once in awhile.

I tend to be one quite a bit Saturdays and Sundays, some afternoons (though not much any more as I have fencing 2 nights a week and work in a charity shop the other three, so I'm nackered a lot). I pop on in my free periods sometimes too... or when I've gone to the library in a lesson to do research, and gotten rather sidetracked :)

-14th February 2004, 14:19
anytime i'm supposed to be doing anything else on the computer... which is when i usually should be doing something else off the computer... procrastination - an altogether far too easy art to master..

-14th February 2004, 15:34
grrr hamley grrrr, its haYleyjade, soz lil pethate of mine!

yes i really should be doing homework, or something right now, curses!

-14th February 2004, 16:35
Usually when i get in (hence the late postings) - also some lunchtimes / when I about to leve work. Or if i,m at home.

-14th February 2004, 17:12
Tends to be the same a hayley just one when ever.

-17th February 2004, 21:51
Displacement activity par excellence. Tends to be when I'm at school, as the broadband connection is really fast, and the old, cranky connection at home isn't. Been absent for four days due to a field trip to the First World War battlefields - the kids found THREE unexploded grenades in a ploughed field on the Somme. (very upset when they weren't allowed to bring them home!)

-18th February 2004, 15:53
I usually log on in the morning from work and keep it minimized through the day. If a post that touches my interest appears, I reply or just mumble something for myself without posting.

-19th February 2004, 14:32
I'm only on during the day at the moment as I don't have a net ocnnection in my house in Birmingham, so whenever between lectures. During teh holiday's in suffolk, it's whenever I'm online.

-19th February 2004, 15:10
I work in the 'Biz' so I'm always online anyway. Even though it may say that I'm hanging around I might be doing other things and not paying attention.

Don't get any idea's from that last sentence - eventually I start paying attention again... :grin:

I didn't at first, but after you mentioned it I dread to think! :dizzy:

I guess I tend to "hang around" sometimes too.......still trying to work out how to pick up emails when I'm away. I used my brother's comp over the last couple of days, and the forum avatars dance on HIS machine and not mine.....haven't for ages, so will have to get our resident computer nerd to check it when he comes home from building his brother's new computer in Brum.....not the boy, you understand - he's been working on/ clearing out my brother/his uncle's computer and is now in London, training.....and I should be doing the ironing. Yeh, right....:grin:

Time for a cuppa!!

Usually in the A.M. before I go to work. (remember, I'm in N.Y.C., so the time differential) I usually get "Madfencer" (what a shock, eh??!!) and others at that time, since it's around 1:00P.M. in the U.K. Also, I work late at night, which is the middle of nowhere for anybody, or else verrryy early in the A.M. over by you!!

-9th March 2004, 11:58
