    How many hours???

    Ok, let's be honest now. Answer all, please.

    1) How many hours a day, on average, do you spend writing music?
    2) How many hours a day, on average, do you spend participating in forums such as this one?

    If the sum of both answers equals more than 24 hours,
    you are:
    a) a proficient multitasker
    b) a type A personality with chemical aid
    c) able to take power naps and work at the same time

    It's already assumed that:
    1) you have no friends outside of the internet
    2) have a rather large collection of food particles in you keyboard from eating all the delivered food
    3) have just gone ahead and taxidermied your pet and mounted it on the wall above your monitor
    4) have no clue as to what grade your children are in
    5) would have forgotten what your wife (or husband, or significant other
    looked like, had it not been for the photo taped to your right monitor
    6) you think gasoline costs $1.25 per gallon (for premium)
    7) that George Bush is president (the first one, silly)

    Results will be tabulated after I return from my non-stop, round-the-world swim. Of course, I will still be available by email.

    Hi RobinsEgg,

    I´ll be honest

    1) I spend approx. 4 - 8 hours for writing music. It depends on how much freetime I´m able to sacrifice.

    2) I spend .... well .... not more than 1 hour a day in different forums.


    What about the others?

    1) How many hours a day, on average, do you spend writing music?
    From the vast amount of demos I've posted here so far, one might guess how much time I've been spending for a few months now. Yep, Diego DelaVega's alias, minus an 'r' and with the first 'o' replaced by an 'e'. All in capitals. Reason is, I'm still waiting for a computer to start doing... stuff. I occasionally write down rough stuff, but so far I never had any gear that gave me any satisfying end products. I hope that'll change very soon, once that computer arrives. Oh, in thre mean time, I do have GPO waiting right next to me
    Ok so, if you haven't figured out the answer by now: it's eh, zero hours.

    2) How many hours a day, on average, do you spend participating in forums such as this one?
    Depends on how much work I have at work, probably about an hour on average.

    I sleep 9 hours though!

    It's already assumed that:
    4) have no clue as to what grade your children are in

    I have children? Dang...

    That's a minimum of two hours a day for the past, like, 5 or 6 days. I'm writing a freaking novel on Overture for God's sake. You'd think I worked for Geniesoft or something. Hey Don, if you read this, how about putting me on the payroll for the manual to Overture 4.
