Just an observation really, there often seems to be a lot of people around late night on this forum.

Either people logged in and went to sleep.. or its just a good time to look about.

For me its peace when kids in bed, come in from any garage tinkering, and tv is poor to dire.

My wife falls asleep at about 10pm, I go to bed later so I use it then.

I have become a creature of habit. My girlfriend goes to bed at 10pm. I start buy looking at the forum, then get distracted by auction watch and end up spunking cash on Ebay though 'Auction watch'. The goods then get delivered to my business address.
This system was full proof.. but now my girlfriend works for me and she see's the good when they get delivered, so I get bollocked then for blasting cash. The bonus is i've already got them in my possesion and i'm that chuffed to get them she can rant on all day and it goes over my head.
I've still got to devise a system to disguise the unexplicable hour after work I spend fiddling with my bike.

I've had 2 sets of forks turn up at work - they were Crosslinks and most people didn't know *what* they were!

Likewise. I get moaned at for slinking off to the 'office' to use the computer but if 'she' wasn't watching the trash on TV, I wouldn't be here either!
