I normally go out for my lunch at about 1.30 or 2, in a day which is roughly 9.30 to 6. This makes the post-lunch part of work pleasantly short, and I get to 6 without feeling at all bored.
Today I had a lunchtime meeting so I had lunch from 12 to 1. It's now 5.15 and I just want to go home .
I've always felt that the norm of taking lunch at midday is weird – people don't centre their living day around the clock, we don't go to bed at 8pm and get up at 4am ... so why make 12pm the 'middle' of your day when it clearly isn't?
Wussies! My grandfather would get up just after he went to bed and walked 14 miles in the snow in subzero temperatures, year round, uphill both ways with only old newspapers for shoes and coat and worked 27 hours a day without lunches or breaks. Stop whining.
At least that's what he told us when we were kids.
Luxury. We used to have to get out of the lake at six o'clock in the morning, clean the lake, eat a handful of 'ot gravel, work twenty hour day at mill for tuppence a month, come home, and Dad would thrash us to sleep with a broken bottle, if we were lucky!
It's not the total number of patches that burns me up, it's the number of reboot cycles triggered by dependencies combined with having to download a large number of patches (and often multiple reboot cycles) before Windows Update will even offer a Service Pack for installation.
(Yeah I know I could probably bypass the SP thing by downloading and manually running the SPs offline installer; but that has a much larger effort requirement than just mashing the Check for Patches Now and Reboot Now buttons repeatedly.)
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

What project management software/tool are you using to manage tasks, deadlines, errors, communication with team etc.
I started a web development company last year and initially we had only 2-3 projects. So it was easy to manage. But now projects are increasing and so is the team and I think it's not efficient to communicate via email (other than face to face meetings). Now I am looking for a proper project management solution where I can assign team and monitor progress, deadlines etc.
