    I seem to keep having these, but it's been one of those days where I haven't even been able to get to my computer until 11:00am. Spent the last half hour dealing with urgent emails, and now I'm trying to collect my head.

    I need some Excel. I think I'm going to dip into a bit of code now.

    How's things going for you all?

    @Ken
    You should never turn the computer(s) off during the nights. In that way You will never find Yourself in a situation as You describe

    Ha! I have my phone, so I can at least check in, but I use it more like a "read-only" portal. Not sure if that's a good thing, or gets me more wound up though!

    I didn't manage to get to my computer before 11am today too, but on account of having a late night and oversleeping.

    On Sunday, I didn't get to my computer at all ... I may be getting a life at last!

    Let's see if you can make it two Sundays. At that point you have a trend, rather than an anomoly.
