    I'm chillin here at work...3:45 a.m. (hospital) and I look and see that there are 21 people viewing. What's up with that? What are ya'll doing? Can't sleep? Addicted to SDN? Raging insomniac? Final tomorrow? Just want to know about the other "night prowlers" out there. :thumbup:

    hi there!!! I'm working at a hospital right now, too! It's 2:51 PST...and my eyes are barely staying open. It went from a super crazy, hellish, first 4 hours...to this 1-on-1 where I just monitor one patient to make sure he doesn't do anything too crazy. Thank goodness for the internet...

    gotta love the night shift...it's all about the 13% shift differential, baby!!!

    i also think some people never sign out when they go to bed. I'm often signed in when I'm in classes all day.

    I had a paper due today so I was up all last night. Then it snowed and I didn't feel like driving to school. After emailing my paper to the professor around noon, I crashed and woke up at six this evening. Needless to say, I figured I'd just stay up all night watching movies and making random posts on SDN.

    Good times.

    It's 1:21 am here. Earlier Romantic Lit final tomorrow, well I guess today, at 11:30 am. 3 hrs of writing awaits me. We get to bring in a notecard with our paper outline so I'm working on that.

    Since finals are over, I have been sleeping too much during the day thus keeping me up late. Being a student is great.

    Well, thanks. I haven't used IRC for a while, but I do have a decent client. So, I'll probably give it a try.
    But I have no problem finding what I want on bittorrent. Never had a fake file yet. I just don't know what I want now....

    On a side note, Pre Allo is consistently hitting 200 during peak viewing times. That is a dramatic increase from 100 when I first joined.

    I've definitely noticed that too. Loading times have been ridiculously slow during those periods.

    I had that happen twice when I was an undergrad. Whoever setup those finals schedules should have been drawn and quartered.

    Yeah, I do, which totally blows. If there's no classes on Saturdays, why should there be finals?

    It's now 1:46 my time and I'm watching Family Guy on TBS. I've seen this episode 100 times, I have it on DVD, but I can't stop. I have a problem.
