Voted Never, but... Apr 25, 2007

It seems that we never have the time, but we do update it every now and then, but not periodically. Something in between "Rarely" and "Occasionally" would have described our case.

Voted 'other'

Seriously, I update whenever there is a significant addition to my CV and tweak it now and then.

The calendar is always up to date, but it's been (quite) a while since I've changed anything else.

I should be rapped on the knuckles. Even more so as half of the "About me" section disappeared when the profile format changed a number of months ago.

Another thing idling on the proverbial to-do list…
Best,
Jocelyne

But it should be rarely.

Earlier, I used to do it after every job, but now, I update my interpretation experience but I've not updated my translation experience for quite some time now.

I used to update 'calendar' but then I realised that people never pay attention to that. So instead, I switch off my phone whenever I'm working on a project or unavailable. At least, then people can not disturb me. Guess not a very good business practice but I'm not too fond of phones.

When I'm really not available and when I get back Apr 26, 2007

I add a large red remark at the top that I am on holiday or studying if that is what I am doing, and some kind of 'season's greetings' as may be appropriate. I tend to review the whole page while I'm there.

I do check my mails occasionally when I'm away, but don't bet on it!

Otherwise my calendar seems to be permanently red...
But it's good for business.
