A research and development programmer working for a pharmaceutical instrument company for the past 17 years.

I am one of those lucky people who enjoys his work and spends more time than he should either doing work or reseaching new stuff. I can also be found on playing DDO on the Cannith server (Send a tell to "Maetrim" who is my current main)

I am also a keep fit fanatic, doing cross country running and am seriously into [url][/url] Karate at this time of my life, training from 4-6 times a week and recently achieved my 1st Dan after 6 years.

Thats not a bad idea! Can you juggle as well?

The main problem is I liike to keep upto date with the articles and comments forums. So if I visit I may spend a min 30+ minutes browsing. As CP has such a colourful look that can be spotted way across the office, non programmers think I am not working. As they are not allowed to visit sites for personal use as well I was asked to cut right down on my visits to stop affecting morale and perception of the sw dept.

This means that I don't get to anwser questions in the forums etc or stick my rather blunt oar into discussions. Cry | :((

Plus I am too tired at home recently to really post from there even though I recently got broadband at home.

I just need to lurk better Big Grin | :-D

If you vote me down, my score will only get lower
