Simple: we work on a 48 hour day!

I think I just go postal fairly regularly
If the idea is truly good, but not something I have time for I sometimes give it to a friend for free, just to see it come to life. Does that make any sense?

The best advice I have heard yet:
"Jolt cola and hersey bars"!
(for our non-american friends, Jolt Cola's advertising slogan is "All the surgar and twice the caffeine" - hersey bars are just chocolate bars)

Jolt is now flavored for those who want twice the caffeine, all of the sugar and none of the cola taste. One of the advantages of living next to a college town. Jolt isn't available everywhere. College towns are the marketing exception

My Mom has a favorite tranquilizer substitute -Dammitol. I take one of these every two weeks or so and spend a day in the woods -- with no electronic devices. The perspective I regain is remarkable.
After all, the essence of our entire culture is disposability. Someday Bic may be making web servers.
**Bic is an American manufacturer of disposable pens and shaving razors.

Ah...the power of music. From the time I start setting up for a gig to the time everything is loaded back in the van for the drive home I think of nothing but the music. It's my GREAT escape. Keeps me from getting too sane or too stressed.

When it comes to stress I find my friend Mr smirnoff helps at the end of a hard day, although of recent my poor old K9 pall has been suffering with fits, the medication prescribed by the vet has remakable effects on me and I find running around on all 4's puts a completely different perspective on things, although I still haven't mastered the art of some of the finner qualities a dog has when it comes to cleaning ! WOOF WOOF

At the end of a stressful day, I'll switch on my PC at home and play games for an hour or two. Don't know why but everything just melts away when I do this. I used to be a games tester for Ocean Software and very often it would be play, play, play, seventy hours a week for two month stretches. Now it's as natural as breathing to me.

>the power of music. From the time I start
I sort of agree with Bluseriff. I go into our dungon, the semi-finished basement and close the door. This is my second work enviorment. I have two PCs their. On the non-work PC I fire up some "work" music and crank it up while I work on the other PC. My wife has no clue how I can work like that. It just is natrural for me.
For high stress days a good hour or so of Quake 3 or UT. Amazing what it does for me ;).
