    Likes for everyone, on me! o_O

    Oh, back on topic...
    All iPad for me. Never the work computer since I’m the InfoSec officer and have to lead by example *sigh*. Checking the flag first, like those two knuckleheads above were getting all lathered up over. Then New Posts, and rarely just a random peek into the general forums to see if I missed anything. The iPhone is only when I’m remote somewhere without easy access to the iPad, like shopping with the wife, doctor’s office or other place where I need a distraction. And before you ask, no, I won’t shave my head.

    Most of the time on my desktop computer. But when I'm having back issues and in bed with my tablet (Kindle) which doesn't work worth a damn.

    Flags, Recent Activity,.
    I used to be on enough that 1 or 2 pages of older activity and I was caught up. Now it takes a little more time.
    Ipad at work. PC at home, and on my phone if I need a fix while I'm out.

    Alerts- likes first. Check those posts first.
    New posts- scan and usually read those threads
    Amp section first- there I can read every thread and post and usually do.
    Electric guitars next
    General last.
    Some of the sections I rarely get to unless they were in the “new posts” area.
    Many times, just the alerts and new posts takes up all my available time. Sometimes I do deeper scans of the sections and find good threads/topics that I have totally missed, or, find the well after they were started. Just cant read it all.

    new posts first thing in the am for spam search and destroy.
    then each forum individually looking for spam not in the new posts.
    then the new members list to kill spammers before they even try to post.

    after that, the 'Bodia Protocol'

    New Post, but now only at Work,, and I shouldn't be doing it at work. Problem is I don't know why but i can not get my android phone or Tablet to log in.. So that means less productivity at work and more frustration at home.

    Check flags.

    Browse for new threads in Electric Guitars and General Discussion.

    Check flags and browse other sections throughout the day as time permits.

    I generally read/reply as appropriate, but sometimes I like to just read posts when I'm on the move. If I want to add a thoughtful response, I'll come back later to do so.

    No one has every accused me of being cool...mostly because of the Santana deficiency.

    That looks like somebody pooped in the pool. :eek:

    Reminds me of a guy that used to work for me. We called him "Shampoo". As in, Head & Shoulders. As in, no neck.

    I scan the new post and flags in the morning when I have my coffee and yes it's usually early since I don't sleep anymore. Check back during the day if I'm riding a desk or on a conference call. And in the evening when its gel time and hockey not on.
