How about you?
At 9PM tonight, I was doing the EXACT same thing.

In my jammies, just finished dinner at midnight, using up my laptop battery charge and watching Graham Norton. Getting up for another glass of chardonay. Night all!

Neighbor woke me up by arming her car alarm. I couldn't go back to sleep. So now I'm sitting in the dark living room in my underwear with my laptop.

My read is that it is fairly conservative, has an income higher than the national average and that there are more bikes per capita here than any where else on earth.

Right now--In the bike shed on the laptop trying to find out if the RST fork on a neighbours bike is repairable. It ain't.

Wi fi up to the Broadband Router so I can even log in if I am the bottom of the garden checking out the hammock to see if it needs to be used.

I'm sitting in a car rental booth in the Birmingham airport parking deck. I rarely go to BF at home. As soon as I do the 3 year old wants to log on to Noggin. Not to mention the wife thinks this is a stupid waste of my time anyway.

I honestly tried to figure out how to ride the trainer and work on the computer at the same time - even devised a platform of sorts, but it just didn't work well.

In my home office, on iMac. Still wearing my pajamas.

It's a sunny day, better get the hell outa here. Maybe, I'll pull my fenderless bike outa the closet.

At desk on home office balcony.

(Younger friends claim that I show my advanced age at wanting a desk or table for screen larger than a Treo. I claim there's wisdom in not letting the infernal electronic devices stray too often from their proper territorial constraints.)

Sitting in a hotel room in INDIA! It is 8pm or so NY time, and 6:30am Chennai time. I've been up since about 4. I haven't been able to fully adjust to the time change after 4 days. By the time I get myself aligned I'll be flying back home.

No cycling here, you'd have to be crazy to ride on these streets.
