It's interesting, although hardly surprising, that there are periods of high activity on this site and periods of almost zero activity. My back has necessitated a couple of days of inactivity during which I've just been sitting here at the keyboard: and, of course, watching my favourite site of all time, which, coincidentally, happens to be this one. And I've watched the to-ing and fro-ing.

So ... Ina always has a gap at around just after midnight. Fee just stays up to all hours. Kiwis and Aussies have an obvious excuse to post in the middle of the night, but still tend to post when the whole of Europe is alive and kicking (???). Andy posts whenever the muse takes him, regardless of where the sun is. Americans are roughly on the same time planet as the UK, so they don't impinge.

So when do you post? Do you try to meet the points where everyone else is around, or do you just post and wait a day or so?

Of course, by the time you answer, my back will be better and I'll probably miss by a few hours ...

I post around 11am-3pm, local time, because that's when I'm awake and have the house to myself.

Don't know what time that makes it for you.

Sorry to hear about the back problem :(

I just post when I can but often have the Ish window open when I'm working on other stuff online.

Same here. I will often have the window open for long stretches and refresh occasionally to see if there are any new posts. I try not to be on so much in the evenings, as I spend most of the day in front of a computer, but, as you can see, I am currently on the forum and not planting potatoes...

Good topic, MKG. I jump in when not doing anything else more pressing or when I have a good idea.

That gap will get longer in future - I'm (almost) back to normal shifts! And that means I'll be on during my breaks - if there's nobody there to keep me talking... And in the evenings. But nights will be for sleeping again.

I am often on in the late evening 10 till midnight - My daily stuff is finished and Shortie is in bed... JohnM is often preparing our dinner - We use the evening for working (outside in this weather) and we find it best to eat after everything else is done.

I do get on during the day, when E is asleep... if I remember to take the laptop downstairs but we have been so busy recently I am only getting on in the evening.

I'm always first thing in the morning and/or lunchtime. Rarely go on my computer in the evening because evenings are for putting feet up in front of the telly! :lol:
