Where do you read the forums at? I find myself reading during slow times at work and also while in bed (a laptop with a wireless card is amazing). I usually read the forums when I'm looking for motivation to get out on the road or mountain bike.

I have a high speed (T1) connection at work, so most of the time I visit from there. I do frequently visit from home though.

I asked this a little while back. If you searched, you could probably find it...but anyway, home and school.

Don't you hate it when someone stels the response you were about to use.

Of course it's probably worse for you, Joe. This means that your mind is working just like mine. Scary.

I print them out and then take them with me to the can. It's better than a newspaper. That explains some of my posts, too!

Mostly Work, but for some reasons if I leave my desk for a while all the 'new' tags disappear so I'm left working out what is new and what isn't :confused:

I find myself reading BF in the evenings while things are winding down at home after the kids get to bed. Sometimes at work especially if I'm really following a few topics.

A laptop with a wireless card and high speed internet connection make it convenient just about anytime especially like now sitting in bed.

Now I'm just trying to figure out how to read the forums in the hot tub. Talk about the best of both worlds!

"New" tags will become "Old" tags after 15 minutes of inactivity.

Work mostly.

I also have a laptop that I strap to my bike and a wireless connection so that I can keep in touch when I go riding. I'd hate to miss anything.
