Unfortuneately, I believe the only cure would be to get rid of your Ural(s) and even then that might not work!!! :shock:

Before my smart phone, I was online only at night. Now I check in all day long while waiting for an elevator, when I take the Browns to the Super Bowl, at lunch and on smoke breaks (like right now).

Thankfully I have unlimited data.

Yes, I'm addicted.

YES. Wifey allows me de-compression time when I get home before dinner. Usually I come here and catch up. Should probably be riding instead :foilhead: . At least this way she knows I will be home for dinner and will not wander off into the next county on the bike!

Rare day off today. I've been working 7 days a week for the last few weeks. Put an out of office notice in place on my email and they're on their own while I'm gone! That being said, normally no, I do not check during work hours.
