newsgroup volume

I may have said this before, but...
It's Saturday - most of the world must post from work as the volume in all but one of the 15 or so newsgroups I read daily has gone down to about 25% of weekday volume. Happens every weekend :-).
The exception is this group :-). I never thought of us as on the cutting edge, but we must have a lot more home systems than most folks.
Maybe more of us are retired or work from home? Anyone ever looked into this?

Yeah, I know the feeling. I just finished--finally--putting in the baseboards in our living/dining room area, and the downstairs bath. So a break is called for even if they were only MDF.
But a home office does get overly demanding at times.

I've been out of work for many months. Days of the week have lost their meaning and it feels like a never-ending weekend. I wouldn't wish this on my worse enemy. Gives me a lot more shop time, but no money for buying wood. I seem to gravitate toward trees being cut down and there's more logs in my shop.

It probably has more to do with having other things to do on a day off than post to a newsgroup. Many at work need a real job rather than posting on a newsgroup all day.

Never really thought about it in that light. I *have* noticed how many people in various places post from work. That has always blown my mind. What are they doing f*ing off on the clock anyway?
Maybe I just think that way because I've never had a job where there was a computer in my workplace.
Well, that's not exactly true, but close enough. I've never had the option to fart around online instead of working.
