    Well, Ive been up since 1am and logged on to the forum since about 1:30am. I just looked to see who was crazy enough to be on with me at this ridiculous hour, and there are 1,192 total, 296 members and 897 guests!
    Man, maybe we need some one to do an intervention on line here at the forum to help us out! I know that some are from other time zones where it is probably day time, but it is nice to know I'm not the only person that uses the biplane forum for therapy!

    I love it!

    Thanks, Beeg!!!!

    It’s 5:17am... and there are 1187 logged on.

    I think this is the “self medication” that we all need to help keep us sane. Some may beg to differ...

    I work overnights, so I’m usually on this site and a couple others when I’m waiting on stuff, or the other guys on my crew. Right now hanging out waiting on paperwork so the avionics guys can work on this bird. Paperwork is honked up pretty bad, and we’ve been on hold since lunch and may not get the corrected paper before end of shift. Other nights, we run from start to end of shift with little or no chance of getting a break.

    I suspect a lot of the "guests" are bots and search engines. Members probably include anybody who didn't close the browser window before going to bed.

    34 years of flying on the back side of the clock will ruin any chance of a normal sleep pattern in life. The internet is great for insomniacs.

    I fly fixed wing aero medical in West TX. When I am on night shift and the weather is bad I check the weather at least once an hour. In between I spend on this and other forums.
