My job at work requires that I monitor a very large milling machine, and I do mean very large!
The machine is NC controlled, and we have to have access to the intranet to download programs and such.
There are days that I may change out 30 cutters a day and clear the paths of Titanium Chips, and then there are days, that I may run a cutter path all day long, with nothing to do but sit and watch it run.
We are allowed to use the internet for personal reasons, as long as it is not too excessive, and the rules are different from shop to shop. As long as our machines are running, and our work area is clean, we are allowed to surf the internet. When I do spend time on the computer, it is usually to do reserch, as I enjoy educating myself in several different areas of interest. Of course, most of my time is spent right here on the forum, and rightly so, as most of my friends reside here.
I also support several members here on the forum, via text and email, on a daily basis, and I enjoy this greatly. My interest vary greatly and include Cooking, Motorcycles, Photography, CP, Travel, Religion, eBay, and so on!
So in essence, I can spend several hours a day to just a few minutes a day, but I try to at least educate myself in some way or support others when doing so.
When I get home, I usually hit the bed within 30min's and may spend a little bit of time on the computer, but not much, as Im exhausted and sore. Latley, I have been shutting down the computer in the evenings, as I dont want to be bothered while I'm relaxing after a hard day at work. Our shop has been working 7 days a week, and it has taken a toll on me,.....Plus, I want to spend some quality time with that beautiful wife of mine!
