    It's almost 5:00 here on the East coast. I'm sitting in my office; most of my employees have gone home for the day. I just poured myself a glass of Macallan 12 year-old scotch. Work is done.

    Now is the time I like to visit the Vegas Message Board. My trip isn't until the end of April. I'm already getting butterflies thinking about it. I was about to head to my favorite section: Trip Reports. But I thought I'd stop here first and pose the question: How do YOU "Vegas Message Board?"

    Santé,
    TL

    Often! Early in the morning and late at night. Also when I take a stress break while at work!

    There isn't a bad time!

    I'm guilty... I check it 2-6 times a day, pretty much everyday

    What a great topic!

    I 'do' VMB during the day while I am at work. I have my favorite topics I check right off: Casino Gaming, to see if that damned Lions Share thread has any new comments, The Misc Thread just because, and the Comps thread to see if MLife has committed any new atrocities. When I am at home and have long stretches of time I jump around from thread to thread. I do keep current on the TR thread as it can get intense trying to catch up on a long report.

    I sign in and go to the "new posts" link that will show me all the posts since my last visit.

    I click on each page in the que first going back to the oldest, and then start scanning for posts or posters that interest me on the oldest page, hitting back to go to the previous page when done with the last. finally I will be back on page one, with no fuss or muss.

    Hope that makes sense.

    If I'm home and awake, VMB (and a few other sites) are up either on the laptop or tablet. I do driveby's as I'm doing other things. I hit new posts and try to keep current. There's no real routine.

    I used to check while im on my home office. I sold my business so I'm just a professional partier at the moment and full time Dad. LOL.

    I check once in a while at home in between watching TV and cleaning the house.

    I dont frequent other forums related to my business anymore so its boring since this is all I'm checking daily. Not much action every hour so I have to check every few hours. :)

    Used to scan throughout the day but then started a new job and only get to do it at night which isn't too bad as there hasn't been as much activity as I have seen in the past.

    Few times a day here and there; first thing in the morning, lunch break, after dinner before I play a game. I check the new messages page and see what looks interesting.

    I check new posts throughout the day when I take a break, usually just quickly checking items that jump out at me. At night when hubby is hogging the tv to watch hockey, football, golf, soccer, basketball....(it's endless really) then I get into all the other messages to catch up.

    I also change the view to show 40 posts per page (User CP, edit options).

    I check VMB off and on all day long. Usually starting at the bottom and working
    my way to the top of the page - scanning for subject lines that catch my eye.

    I click the "View all posts by dfalk" link to see if anyone had a question about what I've posted, or just to see who I've pissed off, lol.

    After that I click New Posts to see what's new in the land.
