I post and read MO at work because I'm an intern in a legal department. More time on MO means less time screwing up valuable cases.

I post on Saturday nights because I'm sitting at home watching Antiques Roadshow. Yes, I'm a 28 yo single male living in a major US city watching PBS on a Saturday night. If anybody wants to come over that'd be cool. Bring more beer. Oh, and you'll have to sit on the bed because I only have room for 1 chair. Sad, really....

Of course, that's not a bad thing, excitment at a high pressure steam plant is really something you want to avoid. We have operating checks, maintenance PM's and outplant rounds too but for the most part we're like Fireman, we're here in case something happens.

Sounds familiar LOL....

You know, the only real difference is now I run a mix of firetube and watertube, hot water and steam boilers and I go home at the end of the day. Everyone on my crew is ex BT or MM, our basic watchbill is an 8 hour rotation...SSDD
