    I'm constantly amazed at the number of people on this board at any given time of day! For instance, right now, it's 1:15 AM where I am, and there 196 people viewing the General Gun Discussions, and hundreds more in the other forums. That's great, and it always provides good things to catch up on first thing in the morning.

    I'm curious:
    What times of day do you most often check this site?
    Once a day or every chance you get?
    Are you on THR in the dead of night because your wife's asleep and won't bust your balls?
    How much time per day do you spend on THR?
    At home? At work?

    Just curious.

    I usually check THR several times a day, including just after my email first thing in the morning and just before bed (now). On a long day here, I might spend an hour in total. Usually thirty minutes, on average, per day. I don't have a wife to bust my balls, although my gal usually does if I'm at her place and use her computer. I usually am on the computer in my dorm room, and only log on in the computer lab/library/public if there's some intense on-going topic, like the VA Tech shootings.

    I'd love to hear about your THR habits,
    Josh

    You mean we have to leave every once in a while?

    I thought that's what coffee is for!!! LOL.

    But I usually pop in from time to time on my days off just to ask questions and to drool at others new toys!

    Monday through Friday I'm here at least once an hour. I'm in a job where if I do have to work, it's usually a really, really, really bad day. I have a bit of free time on my hands thank god

    I check in, in the morning stay until I've read all new posts or checked on posts in threads I've posted in. Work a little, check in again around lunch time and do the same. Again in the afternoon and again in the evening.

    I also like AR15.com and Glocktalk.com, and calccw.com

    I usually pop in frequently when I am at work and its slow. Otherwise when I am not at work I will log in occasionally. Fortuntely I can get a lot of internet surfing and THR visiting done "on the clock" as my work shift is frequently not busy.

    I work rotating shifts. You might see me here any time of the day, several times a day.

    That's because the search feature on THR is the best firearms resource on the internet and so it has international as well as domestic membership.

    A few times throughout the day. But I check all the leading gun sites, and even run my own.

    I try to stay off except during lunch time at work.

    I'm ususally here every evening though. From 8:00 or 9:00 until 11:00 weeknights, until 1:00 am on Friday or Saturday night. Weekend days are busy, but I can usually find an hour or two Saturday or Sunday......maybe I have a problem too. Oh, well.

    Whenever time allows as its a great place for all thoughts and ideas to be exchanged without all the excess bashing other threads sem to have.
    Nothing more powerfull than an idea whose time has come IMO thats why THR does so well and has grown.
    Thanks go out to those who contribute and those who make it all possible and keep it all on the high road.:)

    I pop in and out throughout the day when I have a few free minutes. It gives me a little brain break, which I really need sometimes.

    Not at WORK !!!!

    I mostly check in early before I leave for work. One day I tried to get on at work when things were slow. Not only could I not get on, but a banner popped up saying this sight was not allowed- it fell under the catagory of GAMBLING & HATE !!!!! I look sometimes and see other people playing games, checking out their hbbies or E-mailing their freinds or family, but I guess those things aren't so hateful. There was also a message saying it had been reported to management, haven't heard anything about it yet.

    I "check in" a few times day and with my current kind-of-crazy schedule it could be anytime between 0000 and 2359.

    This place is such a great reference!

    Long live, THR!

    Since I tend to spend a lot of my time at home in front of the computer, I check in throughout the day and night. I check in at work when things are going slow. I don't sleep well, so it's not uncommon for me to get up and browse for an hour or so in the middle of the night too.
