In case anyone hasn't figured out, this is my actual work schedule. It hasn't changed for a while so far, except on thursdays I sometimes finish 30 mins later, and I kinda like how I have an entire 3 day weekend OFF every two week. However, that's still 9 days in a row every two week, so on certain weeks, this can be quite hectic.

Usually, mondays and tuesdays are the most active evenings on both the forums and IRC, especially the later, where sometimes 30% of the entire week convo happens there. So basically, I get highlighted a lot from ppl asking if I am on while I am at work, then when I arrive from work and show up on IRC, I get flooded with many requests, questions, getting asked to check links to topics and if I want to play Starcraft or the like. So obviously I am not gonna have time to awnser all of them, and I may miss some, and I also do my routine of checking my Emails and Youtube, while eating something (and computer stuff since I just got this comp last week) It has come to the point where now when I return from work and open the Omnimaga forum page, I may not even have to go check the posts at all until next morning or afternoon and when I do, I sometimes skim through them and may not reply, then forget about them the next day.

As for now, I am in the second half of my 9 day schedule. Generally in this part I start getting quite tired, and even in my first day off afterward, I may still not feel sane x.x. Depending of the week I may be more tired than usual, while other weeks I may be pretty fine. This week I am tired because the last weekend OFF I had I went through every store nearby for the new computer and last friday had lot of stuff to do. So basically, this should explain in overall why my activity seems to go up one week then down the other, and why I am not often on chats as well (besides #omnimaga), and why I can't awnser the 10 requests I receive every day x.x (no offense Tribal)

Ah, that's why it seems like "DJ's at work" and then the next Tuesday I'm about to say "Is DJ on?", but you say hi and beat me to it. :)

Thanks for the info. :D
