about half an hour for me
what are you doing teh rest of the time?
but normally I start doing work from the first phone call which is usually about 10-11am.
I'd be interested to see how much work people on here actually get done. I do quite a lot even though I post on here a lot but I could do so much more I hadn't been sucked into this.
people don't really talk in my office - so DIS is like my CHAT TIME
because I'm on my own and don't talk to anyone all day. I've started to notice that when I don't talk for a while, my voice goes all funny. I'm scared that one day i'll go to talk and nothing will come out. This would be a blessing for a certain someone.
5-10 minutes for computer load up.
10 minutes to have breakfast/chat
5-10 minutes to check news/ssn.
so i'd say about twenty minutes, champ.
and then breakfast so theres 10 min late. then i watch some daily youtube vids to put me in good mood, normally the shaytards then i check email facebook, alter the press, questionable content and finally settle down to DIS and check my work emails. 30 min
but it can be a good hour before I'm "into it".
Where he explains to the Scrubs guy what he does in a day?
Bob Slydell: You see, what we're trying to do is get a feeling for how people spend their time at work so if you would, would you walk us through a typical day, for you?
Peter Gibbons: Yeah.
Bob Slydell: Great.
Peter Gibbons: Well, I generally come in at least fifteen minutes late, ah, I use the side door - that way Lumbergh can't see me, heh - after that I sorta space out for an hour.
Bob Porter: Da-uh? Space out?
Peter Gibbons: Yeah, I just stare at my desk, but it looks like I'm working. I do that for probably another hour after lunch too, I'd say in a given week I probably only do about fifteen minutes of real, actual, work.
Peter Gibbons: You see, Bob, it's not that I'm lazy, it's that I just don't care
I love that; has been done many times.
- "morning Peter"
It gets to 1030 hours - 1100 hours and I think there's no point starting now, when lunch time is inching closer.
Then it hits 1200 hours, my browser window goes from being a third of my screen size to FULL SCREEN and I sit there for an hour doing exactly what I've been doing all morning.
In fact, I get in usually about 8.15 and get 75% of my days work done by 9.30/10am.
After that it's just DiS and any ad hoc stuff which makes up the other 25% of my work load.
It would be nice if our salespeople could actually sell for us, then I'd have some work to cut through the expance of spacing out time.
get in at around 8:30, do my usual round of sites, including a good hour of DiS. I then look at the clock and decide it's about time to go to the cafe and read the paper over a coffee.
An hour later I'll be back in the office, checking DiS (and other haunts) again to see if there's been any more posting. Then it's a solid hour of work (with intermittent web checks) before lunch.
other times I do basically nowt like today, and the best thing is if I don't do any it isn't my fault. Mind you if the place was his dead all the time I would probably get made redundant. Might go outside with a sandwich board now.
Monday to Wednesday are our busiest time, so usually pretty-much straight away. I'll even sometimes come in early if I think it'll be a stressful day.
Thursday and Friday are a different story though. I do about a quarter of my week's work in those two days and cram the other three quarters into those three days.
If I'm not in the lab I will piss around on the internet until mid-morning.
today i have done half an hour of my own work - now starting on real work - will probably do my own stuff after five when everyone has gone home
