    Hmmm... Some people maintain news servers for a living. Many of them
    diddle on newsgroups during working hours. By working hours I assume you
    mean 9-5?

    It's either a BORING job or your hours should be cut if you have that
    much time to do something not in your job description.

    >By working hours I assume you mean 9-5?


    I'm talking about any job... 24/7. If the people who maintain servers
    have that much time on their hands, I'd be bored stiff if I had to do
    it.

    Get your nose out of the stratosphere. Working outside the 9-5
    routine didn't make you a martyr. Having that much time to devote to
    something not part of the job description would motivate me to find a
    more stimulating job ASAP - but you chose an alternate route.

    Stratosphere? Very odd choice of words.

    So who is claiming martyrhood? Certainly not I. I loved my job.

    What makes you think doing as one pleases as long as the job was done
    isn't part of the job description? I am not sure what you're talking
    about. I simply stated that maintaining news servers was an actualy job
    position in some organizations and not all jobs are 9-5. I was not
    directing it towards anyone specifically and certainly not myself.
