A flurry of activity, although not here

I've been more active than usual of late on the SDMB. I'm not entirely sure why. I've actually been choosing to read and post there over playing City of Heroes, which is surprising. I think my CoH addiction may have peaked. I'm still addicted and still playing, mind you, but I think I may be past the most obsessive, must-play-all-the-time point.

Only time will tell, of course. I seem to recall going through the same kind of cycle with Diablo II, where I got away from playing it at times, only to be drawn back in by the endless cycle of leveling and acquiring new cool stuff. CoH lacks stuff, though, which makes it a bit less compelling. But it offers more skill/power choices than D2, and it's superheroes, which are the stuff of my boyhood fantasies. So it's got that going for it.

I've been doing some more actual working at work, as well. That is, more time spent doing the things I really should be doing, like longer-term strategy, instead of short-term reactive stuff. It's a nice feeling, but hard to sustain. I need uninterrupted time to focus on what I am doing, and that doesn't come easily. Now that I have my team handling most of the issues, it's starting to happen, though.

In fact, what am I doing posting here when I should be either working or going home?
