  2. Not really. I spend half the time peering into the fridge for more bait.
  3. I'm so busy working and not sitting in a garden chair in shorts and t-shirt at all.

    This is true. Good thing the fridge is empty. Fucking starving though!

    Tbf I don’t have a garden as I live in a flat but thinking of going up the pub for the remainder of the day and using their WiFi. Fancy a pint :cool:

    Just the 2 so far pal, rookie numbers..

    This, it’s great overall but you do get caught up in more domestic choreage, school holidays are a pain too. You’re on a conference call and your son is on Fortnite in the next room.

    It’s also weird going straight from the home office to the dinner table after a stressful day, sometimes a commute is good for tuning out from work.

    Would be shite today tbh, would want to be in the garden, not grafting. Would probably only get half of my work done.

    shite if you do it regularly, as I do. end up sending more emails/making more calls just to 'prove' you're not offline.

    only upside is you get to listen to your own choons all day. and you don't have to get washed.

    "You dont look busy" is often a refrain.

    Jesus h christ im run vast amounts of code sometimes it takes minute or two.

    Im going back into the office tomorrow

    Or "you have music on, you cant be working"

    Yeah but when im in office its not a kin monastery

    Done so for the last 10 years.Pros outweigh the cons even if just to avoid the commute from Seaton to Darlo each day . Dont really have the chance to skive as we used Skype for business across all the offices in Europe and if no mouse activity for 5 or 10 minutes you light changes from Green for available to Yellow for away
  16. Can only imagine the clip of you :lol:

  17. Attach the mouse to a string and hang it next to the fridge door or a cat.
  18. There's an app that will jiggle your mouse every few minutes

  20. Pretty sure there's an option in Skype to increase the amount of time you can be inactive before your status changes to Away or Inactive.
