Wow Feb 21, 2007

Well, I AM impressed. I chose "depends" (if that differs from "sometimes")
I will visit if I'm working on Sunday, but if I'm not, I try not to turn on the box from hell at all.

Cheers,
Pawel Skalinski

all the time Feb 21, 2007

I visit it whenever I open my browser; I set it to be my homepage I never even log off. I think I'm obsessed with ProZ. I've been obsessed for years and I'm afraid there's no medicine for that.

Family life Feb 21, 2007

In a personal attempt towards what they call "conciliación familiar" here in Spain, I have disconnected the ADSL at home and removed the computer to an office elsewhere. Now of course you find me looking for childcare on Sundays so that I can get on with work...

been there Feb 21, 2007

I answered 'usually' but I almost always visit the site on Sundays, knowing how desperately one can need help with one term or another for a job that needs to be done by Monday. I've been there!

Like Pawel Feb 21, 2007

I am with Pawel on this one. Unless I really have to work on Sundays I will avoid switching the computer on at all. It is good to get a break from it now and again!

It varies Feb 21, 2007

I try to average a five-day work week (not always possible). However, which five days they are varies from week to week.

association Feb 21, 2007

I can't help associating those pastel green-brown-yellowish colours with work, so I try to avoid Proz if I'm on a day off.

Only if something has gone terribly wrong Feb 22, 2007

I'm with Steven and try to limit the number of days I work per week. I generally take the weekend off and avoid accepting jobs on Fridays, which means that I'm only ever in front of the computer on a Sunday when I've (very badly) miscalculated how long a translation will take. It's only happened twice, I think.

Best,
Jocelyne

Yes Feb 22, 2007

But not for long... Usually, there's not anything new on Sunday... I think Saturday, Sunday and early Monday (i.e. up to 4 or 5 p.m. Indian Standard Time) are the most silent days on proz.
I come here because it's a habit... but I don't stay here for long on these days.
