I will be on now and then.

The reason that I do not have that much time to play all of a sudden, is that I have been feeling very tired over the last couple of months. I haven't slept much, so when I come home from work I simply crash on the bed for several hours until late in the evening.

I know this is stress-related because at my customer there have been some people resigning and finding new employment, some reorganization and we need at least 2 more people to fill in the work load and now with summer vacation I tend to let people with children be with them while I hold down the fort.

I do have difficulty unwinding and relaxing, finding that inner peace. So if I all of a sudden during an OP logoff there is a reason. And this is it.

I know what you are talking about, having this insane project at work that lasts at least 6-8 months causes enough stress :(

I'm usually quite good handling stress but there is that certain point when enough is enough. Not that much interest doing stuff when you finally get back home.

But the thing what I do when I feel very stressed is that I listen some music. Something from Vangelis (my all time favorite) or then this:

Put song on repeat, close eyes, drink something good and puff, you get a little break from work stuff :)

Isn't Vangelis the guy who did the soundtrack to Blade Runner?
Hitman, try doing what I do: get drunk and then get stoned!

Yes, exactly the movie that got me into Vangelis music.

But I can highly recommend that "getting drunk"-part too...hell, I'm drunk even now! :woohoo:

That ain't healthy Pointy...

PS2 is my stress relief - I just imagine every barney and smurf I kill is one of the wankers I work with/for :D

Also, alcohol.

Can't blame you for taking some time off as I've seen what stress can do to a person.

Are you sure it's a jackhammer? You didn't just forget to turn off your vibrator before you put it back in the drawer?

Also, circus midgets! Midgets everywhere!
