    what % of time......

    do you actually spend working during the day? I'm usuallly on site for 7.5 hours a day. Probably spend only 10% of that actually doing any work. The rest of my time is spent web browsing, reading the paper in the toilets and eating. I wish there was more work here for me to do but such is life.

    I have jacked in my current gig, highest rate for ages, because there is not enough to do. As a contractor my edge is to be able to work hard, fast and accurate. If I cant keep practicing that then I am offski.

    I reckon I wont slow down till I'm about 61

      MoD by any chance? It’s the same here, I fear I'm going to have a shock when this gig is finally over (2 years and counting), is there still a requirement to support NT4 in the real world?

        40% of my day is work. I have a PSP which gets used in the bogs - lifesaver as I've exhausted the net.

          Wow. You use a PSP to wipe your ass. Can't you just use a handfull of fifties like the rest of us.

            fifties just are not absorbant enough. I got caught short in the outback last October and can vouch for the absorbancy of the Australian notes.

            Their washability too.
