    What's the best way to spend less time working and more time on the AR website?

    Come on, guys and gals, you must have techniques and practices that have worked for you so you can spend more time here. I actually daydream about spending more time here as I'm working on spreadsheets and Powerpoints. If you've ever had to maintain a stock ledger, you know what I mean. Share your secrets, how do you manage to spend more time on AR.com?

    I spend about 10 hours a day on my computer and another 4-5 on my iPhone. I always have AR up and running on both. When a get a brief moment, or want a break from crunching numbers, I hop on (like right now for instance!) and click on a half dozen posts then go back to work. I'm also an avid baseball fan, I can watch baseball and post on AR pretty much simultaneously. I'm just a good old AR junky !!!

    1. Have to “POOP” more often so you can be on your phone more. (I know a guy who does this because of video poker). Be careful of hemorrhoids though

    2. If you can find a creative way to get fired maybe you can get unemployment....

    3. Start your own bbq related business and write off your internet, computer, phone, tablet, and subscription as a business expense.

    4. Quit your job.

    5. Become the tech guy at work.

    6. Become the CEO

    7. Take up smoking so you can have more breaks. If your company still allows that.

    8. Telecommute

    9. Call in sick

    10. Get your boss addicted to BBQ and sign them up for AR...

      #1 seems to be the most economical and safest option.

      Maybe I should have made that #2 instead lol.

      Develop a split personality and send one to work and the other can stay home on AR. It'll work, No it won't, Yes it will!

        I have a browser tab up on AR on my phone, iPad and home computer most of the time. Since I work from a home office, I slide the mouse over to the home browser to look at AR several times a day while waiting on my design software to render and other lengthy things that make Windows give me a spinning cursor on that computer.

        When work is done it’s one of two sites up on my iPad.
