Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
PC stays logged on. I check email while I'm making coffee, JAWS will read my email to me while I scoop coffee and pour water. Using voice commands I can navigate from forum to forum and if I really need the caffeine I have JAWS read the forums too while I consume more coffee. Unless I'm leaving the house that day there's no need for anything but sweats and a tee.
Dual monitors help feed the addiction, I can read two articles about the same topic, compare them without clicking back and forth. The coffee pot, phone, fridge, TV and radio are all within arm's reach. I don't have a monitor in the loo yet but I've thought about it. I force myself to get exercise every day and make sure that the sun is still functioning properly and the dogs get fed. I'm usually on the phone when I'm feeding the dogs and I've found that I can turn one of my monitors around, take the mouse and the keyboard outside and sit on the deck and work.
I'm still looking for a program that will type what I'm thinking I'd have the surgery tomorrow to install the card. ;)

although, one cold, pre-update day I left the villa in a hurry and overly excited, and.... ;)
Then munch on breakfast while I pour through the forums.
Preferably pastry though, gotta have pastry.
After moving up to sleeping in two pairs of socks I have recently given up and started sleeping in my slippers :) Poor circulation from too much sitting in front of a computer means I get very cold feet.
As for getting dressed, I can't function in the morning until I've had my shower. It's like a lot of people with coffee, I need the warm water to kickstart my brain. So I'm always dressed and respectable before I reach my PC. Probably a good thing for the neighbours because it's pretty much right in front of a big window looking out onto the street.
I live in Florida (retired) and searched for months for some wool socks to wear to bed. My feet suffer from poor circulation...so badly that they feel like I am walking on someone elses feet! I awaken during the night with my feet so cold they ache! The dog growls and snaps at me if I put my bare feet on her!
Friends in New Hampshire bought me some wool socks last Christmas and I bought some goose-down filled booties from Lands-end online. By wearing both, my feet stay warm.
I awaken about six every morning, roll out of bed (wearing NOTHING but my socks and booties) turn on the coffee...turn on the computer, check my money pages...take a shower, put on shorts, socks, booties and begin my 16 hours of online work...7 days a week.
I have a friend that is as old and ugly as I am and he downloaded a beautiful young wife from Canada...if I can get him to explain HOW...maybe I can get one that would turn on the coffee every morning.
I don't typically 'log in' before I get dressed, but I do unlock the screen saver (which is locked over night because one of our cats likes to walk on the keyboard.), re-load WebmasterWorld, and read my mail.
This thread just woke me up to how addicted I am. I always thought that cigarettes were my strongest habit, but I fire up the PC every day BEFORE I light up my first smoke.
