    HAHA... no offense taken anyway! I am at work... Jabseattle said it perfectly, once I am out of the office, I don't want anything to do with a computer.. well except maybe a little porno late at night... but I digress.

    Greg-how did the Chummies treat you this year? I never hiked into "the hole".

    shoo, i can't buy a job. actually I just graduated in may from college, then was subcontracting for a moving company, was real busy until I tried branching out on my own as Clockwork Moving. as fall came, business almost ceased. Ive been logging and living off savings between the few jobs my company does procure. need to get a different job, but i hate working for someone else. needless to say my posting has gone on unhindered.

    Well, I should be working, maybe I should change my name to jimmyssupposedtobeworking. But instead I spend as much time learning from the more experienced people here.

    I feel alot better knowing I am not the only one hoping the IS department is not checking the internet traffic!

    With two stepkids hogging the computer until bedtime - my only chance is at work...most of the time.

    Brian - the chummies have treated me fair - at best. I've been sticking to the other side of the river about 2 miles upriver from "the hole". It's along way to walk.

    It's about time to get into the steel.

    I work in the IS department, 9 to 5. I can almost guarantee that everyone else's IS departments don't have time to check what you guys are doing, unless you are downloading spyware (Chris does not have issues like that on this website). We like to look at your pron occasionally, but ours is usually more interesting. Big brother is out there, he's just too busy to care mostly. ;)

    Clearly this was an attempt to get dirt on people so you could blackmail them at work. Good idea! Then you could retire and fish all the time!

    [ramble]

    As I tell anyone who will listen for a half-sec, the only reason I work at a tech job in Seattle is so I can house my wife and kid. If it weren't for them, I'd ditch the job and house, buy an airstream to tow behind my F150 and no one would ever hear from me again except via postcards.

    I wish I were a fly-fishing cowboy, but instead I'm chained to about 10 computers during the weekday - why not spend time reading about fishing.

    On the plus side my kid is a hoot! He's 2 and he just walked off with my latte and is choking on it right now. Little freakshow. He calls my olive chenille "snakes". Also, my wife is hot so I shouldn't complain. :)

    Disabled vet here. I'm either at home, whch allows me to visit here sveral times a day or I'm on a river (200+ days a year). My only problem is finding places with somewhat easy access to our great water.

    I'm a free lance writer, author, poet. No, I don't work...
    I just love this site. I post at all hours, sometimes at two, three in the morning when I can't sleep. Don't know what I'd do if Chris kicked me off for some of the more rash things I say. Just gotta keep my fingers crossed or go somewhere else I guess. But we seem to like each other and with a very few exceptions, I like almost everyone on the board.

    Bob, the Work? No, thanks, I did that all my life and it's time to catch a few fish now. :ray1:

    What kind of jobs do you have? I'm working all day as a 5th grade teacher. No time to check the site during the day at all!

    I read and post after my work day is done while I'm at home.

    Capmblade.... iagree

    I am a work poster and home poster. I'll be unemployed about the time the winter run really heats up, then employed again....flyfishing in alaska....then unemployed again........until the next summer. OH YEAH - FINALLY There will sufficient Fishy-Time.

    I am starting to think the seasonal bum way of life is the hot ticket. To hell with owning a house, To hell with getting married (unless she makes ALOT of money..hehehehe), to hell with all this adult crap. Guide in the Summer, Be a Skibum/bartender/floor mopper at some high dollar resort somewhere (IE: Whistler, Jackson, The Valley) during the winter and Repeat! You'd have mimimal bullshit, and MAXIMUM Fishy-Time! Pension...who needs it? Insurance....Naaaaaaaa, Responsibility.......Over Rated! 300+ days of fishing a year......... :ray1:

    well, a guy can dream cant he?
