in thread Maintaining one's focus while working (alpha/beta/delta brain waves)

Antisocial behaviour can get certain people to avoid you, but it tends to show up in reviews.

LOL! That's one of my tricks too. The people at work* probably would be very surprised if they met me outside work and might even ask: "Hey, why aren't you this friendly and talkative at work?" Um...maybe it's because I want to get *work* done at work, and programming does not lend itself well to being interrupted every 5 minutes with a phone call, sports blabber, chit-chat, etc.

Heck, I've been too busy to visit PerlMonks lately - now that's *busy*! ;)

*This applies to the non-programmers only, of course
