It appears that many thread messages occur between the hours of midnight and 5 am.

Is the Mudcat a cause or a cure for us nonsleepers?

I's noticed that I can send a message during the day here in Wales + UK and it tells porkie pies (lies) and says its 4am - but honest it isnt, it's usually 10 am or there abouts.

(its the time difference in places)

I think Oz time is just about opposite US east coast time...that is, it's the same time a. m. there as it is p. m. here, or vice versa...but I don't know if it's the day before or the day after.

My nocturnal habbits have got me accused of being a Vampire! I have never been an early to bed person but I have got worse since I started using the Internet. The main reasons for this are that I am unemployed and rarely have anything I need to do in the morning and that much of what I do, i.e. the people I chat with and hearme, tends to centre around American time even though I live in the UK so I find it more convenient to keep those hours.

I start on an HNC in Buisness IT at the end of this month so my habbits will have to change if I'm going to manage to attend the college at ungodly hours like 9:00 am.

I'm off sick pro tem, and like Jon, keep odd hours because it suits me and allows me to hook up with some mudcat friends but once, when I was suffering through a very bad bout of insomnia I posted a thread here and got many helpful suggestions......if you are suffering I suggest you search on insomnia......it was back in January I think.

What's really weird is calling Hawaii from Korea, and having to remember that although Hawaii is 5 hrs later than Korea, it's the day before. (I kept trying to call an office on Mon, and it was still Sun in Hawaii.)

Air force crew members routinely set their watches to GMT and mentally add or subtract an appropriate number of hours for wherever they are. Don't ask them "what time is it" - they'll ask "where."

I'm unemployed at the moment, and my sleep schedule keeps creeping later and later. Unfortunately, right before bed I usually decide to make sure I haven't missed anything on Mudcat, so I'm on for an our later than when I decided to pack it in.

Morty is staying with me this weekend, I'll tell you if it works or not - we may end up sharing the back bedroom (the guest room where the computer resides) whilst the two blokes share Phoebe's bed......

Insomnia is caused by Mudcat, you post something, and someone answers rapidly, you have to say thank you or stick your fourpence in, or you get involved in a Hearme, and before you know it, it's 3.00am, your eyeballs are like pissholes in the snow and your child is screaming for its breakfast!!

Jeri,the International Date Line can mess a lot of things up.When I was in the Navy, my ship crossed it on our way to Aukland NZ. We went to bed on Fri. nite and woke up Sun. morn. to pull into port.
Guess what? All the bars were closed on Sun. What kind of liberty was this? Luckily we found our way to the NZ Navy base and the Enlisted Mens Club and had a great piss-up.

You should experiment the great satisfaction of having a new year's eve in Oz.You pick up the phone,call someone Europe or so,amd go"Hello...I'm calling from year 2000..."

Often I was tempted to post a good morning thread to wish a good day to all mudcatters 'left behind' somewhere who still had to finish the previous day. And since this is not my native timetable,at the end of the day I'm envious of all those ones in the world who are still going through the day and will live more of it...it sounds funny. I used to log on the Mudcat at 8-10 in the night and go on until 4 or even six in the morning...luckily the housecomputer broke down and I can log in for a scarce hour during the day.I'm safe! The mudcat,I think,is terribly insomniac.You sit there and go through it like a dream or anyway something out of your touchable reality...and you can wake up then-and go to sleep!!!

Let's see, if I have this right, it's breakfast time in Tennessee, so it must be lunch time there? Of course for those of us who have been up most of the night, maybe it's supper time. Either way, there's food involved.

Jeri, yes many of them did work....but the primary cause at that time was a really bad dose of flu for which I was taking sudafed....not realising until a kind mudcatter pointed it out that it has caffeine or some such in it...there were some great tips on living with a bad cold or flu too now I think of it.......guess I'll be going back to that thread myself come the winter.

Back to the original question, Mudcat's been keeping me awake for a little while tonight, but now I'm also being kept awake by something else: I decided to burn a copy of my 'Silent Hill' (Playstation game) soundtrack for my cousin, and it's a pain in the ass...

After this, I'll probably go for a drive, pick up my car at my dad's house, and go home and feed my cats. I'll be in bed by... 4 or 5 am? Ugh...

Well I just got done with the last of 6 batches of jam today and am printing labels (just taught my computer to do that, but it's a bit tricky and it is getting cranky) and in the meantime house managed Wavestar's production of As You Like It. We got completely rained out so we did the performance in her frat house---a VERY unusual fraternity. It would have to be for her to be a member! But this is when I can take the time to look and that "One more thread" about sums it up...But since I gotta get up at 7 for the farmer's market I guess I better off to bed. G'night all...*yawn*

Cobble,

Go to the top of the forum-home page. Click on quick links. Select re-set cookie, and then follow the directions that come up on your screen. You might have to do this fairly often. I have to do it almost every time I enter the Mudcat. (It's worth it, though)
