All the above. Especially check on Paco.

. o O ( Who the hell is Paco anyway? )

I've found most definitely that how much I am here in PM is inversely proportional to how intellectually engaged I am with work. Not a measure of how busy I am, but how much what I'm doing at work is mentally challenging me.

As far as socializing goes, I definitely have my list of monks that I like checking in with and that one day I'd like to meet. The only monk I've met in person (and is he really considered a monk?) is The Damian.

CB provides me a diet of interesting talk ranging from joke telling and being silly to some real debate about social and other issues. And oh yeah... a source of instant advice about technical issues. Not always technical issues revolving around Perl either.

I think the PM community is by far the most cohesive one that I've seen in (I almost have begun to hate using this term!) Cyberspace. Signal to noise ratio is better here than any other "forum" I know of.

    how much I am here in PM is inversely proportional to how intellectually engaged I am with work.

    I was telling a co-worker about some of the stuff I had been doing ouside of work. He said "where do you find the energy to program?"

    Me: "what do you mean?"
    Him: "you program all day at work. how do you get the drive to do it after work?"
    Me: "i don't program at work. well okay, I write code. but it's not programming."

    I switched companies since then and I've been so busy that I haven't been around the monastary as often as before.
