    That all depends on how the meeting is structured.
    I spend like...depending on week, 6-12 hours in meetings (I think), and in some of them stuff is getting done, some are just informative, and some are purely useless. The ones I lead are obviously the more useful ones ^^.

    I've got a healthy surplus for you. I just got home to a notepad file with 33k Os. I think something is triggering my O circuit from underneath it. :(

    Hi there, I've been more active like a decade or so :lol:, I was more involved in civ4 forum and NOTW... but it feels good to get back around here now and then...

    Obviously :mischief:
    You are totally correct about meeting structure (a good one has an order, a leader, minutes produced, actions being taken, and only the needed folks present, etc...) but it's alarming the number of meetings that ends up in a total waste of time (in my experience... you may - hopefully - have been in a better place)

    You can just check my signature or Snerk's. We'll distract the wife by pretending to be Mormons.

    This will sound like a humble brag but I absolutely despise doing good things and being acknowledged for them. I'm so comfortable with and insistent on hating myself, all the while maintaining the idea (no matter how warped) that this is logically consistent and empirical. That I can objectively prove I lack value, that I'm unreliable, and that I shouldn't be turned to. So whenever I do something Good™ I inevitably get pissed at myself for daring to do such a thing. But that's stupid. I should like doing good things. And indeed I strive to do good things. But then when I do those things, I just wield it as another means of despising myself.

    Wait'll you get the Raves, the Rants, and the Random Thoughts.

    It's actually rather nice. :)

    The fertile topsoil of San Bernardino stains my feet black every freakin' day that I work over there.

    I wish. It's great soil, but bone dry pretty much so just dust. It works in through my shoes and goes right through my socks.

    That's why you don't wear sandals with socks.
