Around noon my time Nov 6, 2007

When my clients in Europe are trying to clear their desks before they go home.

Anytime! Nov 6, 2007

Morning, afternoon, evening, midnight... because of time difference, as we have between -2 and -5 hours difference with U.S.A., and +4 or +5 hours with Europe.

Also, some clients seem to take their office work everywhere! We sometimes get e-mails from clients's iphones or blackberries, at odd local times or weekends.

I'll second that, mediamatrix! Nov 7, 2007

Most of the times I'll be getting new orders within 30 to 15 mins to COB hours, though sometimes I DO get early morning ones - usually short jobs with a couple of hours' deadline.

It got to the point when I decided to offer discount for clients with low wpd requirements and extended deadlines... I'm getting old, I can't stay up all night every nigh anymore! lol

From 3:30 to 5:30 pm GMT Nov 7, 2007

Work arrives anytime, of course, but most popular is between 3:30 and 5:30 pm GMT, presumably when the bankers and lawyers get back from lunch. And often on Friday afternoons, wanted for Monday.
