As I’ve mentioned, I have a heinous commute. Over an hour in good traffic. But I’m only in the office one or two days a week and its not so bad with raucous music or a good audiobook.
Today I left work at 4pm, thinking I would beat the traffic and I’d breeze all the way home and still have time to do a little work before knocking off and having a beer.

I got home at ten of seven. Raucous music didn’t help at all.

I feel your pain. I once commuted 5 hours a day: 2 in the morning, 3 in the afternoon. (A bus, then a train, then another train, which I’d always miss by seconds.)

Now, I live <5kms (<3miles) away from Brisbane CBD where I work and refuse to live more than a half-hour drive from my workplace.

Work from home is the best option, just have your spouse keep the office keys so they can lock you in or out when necessary.

PS: You also taught me HTML back in ’94, I’ve always wanted to say thanks!

Hi!Today I find a book wrote by you in the library of my university. I find this website in that book. I think your book can help me a lot. And I find that books wrote by women read comfortable than those wrote by men. Books wrote by men sometimes read baldness.

Hehe,I hope the following words could display correctly in your Browser.I’m a student in China.
祝你工作顺利,生活愉快!
