    I find myself hitting CK5 ridiculously often during the day... I think I'm going to take a break. I think I've also gotten in a beef or two more than I'd like to recently, feeling like a wee bit of a dink here and there, too.
    So right now I'm supposed to be doing work, but instead I'm hitting F5 on CK5. :doah: :doah:

    I think I'm going to take a break, pull myself from CK5 for, ummm, 1.5 days at first (has to be precise for RJ's sake). I'm sure I'll come back to look at the poll every 15 minutes, though.
    :D :D

    I do it at least once a year for a month or two. Spend some time with the family. You'll come back.

    F5 is generally the standard "Refresh" key shortcut. Try it in other programs! :thumb:

    if you're not as dedicated as the rest of us, get the heck out. we dont need any half-assed CK5ers here. only gung ho, git-r-dun CK5ers allowed. good riddance!



















    i actually voted yes. if you feel you need a break, by all means take one. when you're ready to come back, we'll be here with open arms (watch RJ, i think he might try some funny stuff :doah: ).

    I clicked yes. The reason being is because CK5 is a lot like sex with the same woman over and over again. After a while it becomes boring and you don't work as hard at it. If you hold out for a week or two....BAM "It feels like the first time, it feels like the very first time.....!!!!!!" :D

    That's my 'plan' mostly because I have no time on weekends to surf the net. It's easy at work. Espicially now that I know what the F5 button is for. :bow:

    Stay!! Please stay!

    Oh, not to get off topic here Ratch, but I gotta know. Is Shea Stadium the P.O.S. sports venue everybody makes it out to be, or have you heard? I've heard a lot of 'net reviewers say's it's the worst place in the world to go watch a baseball game and the worst stadium that's ever been built so I need a good opinion too. Not that I'm coming up there to catch a Mets game anytime soon, I'm a curious boy.
