    Does Bob ever Sleep?

    I'm looking at the times of Bob's posting and I have to wonder if he ever sleeps.

    LOL - My wife is younger than me and gets up at 4:30 AM every day to go to work. I get up with her Mon - Fri, make some coffee while she is getting ready and check the overnight Email on my workshop computer. She goes to work and I am here packing parts, answering Email, answering phone calls and monitoring this Forum basically all day. Sometimes I have to make a run to UPS or the Post Office to ship a kit or some parts out. When we go on vacation I have to take the laptop with me and make sure that the motel we stay at has wireless internet to keep up with the 20+ Emails I get every day related to the Dynaco VTA amp kits. By 9 PM I am falling asleep on the couch so rarely will you see any posts by me after 9 PM (Eastern) ...

    All of my e-mails to Bob have been answered before the soldering iron cools. Great customer support!

    I'll add to Bob's comments on his schedule. This certainly isn't a "hobby-biz" anymore as I used to like to call it. I average 12 hours a day keeping up with orders.
    When I rarely don't have orders to fill I'm designing new circuit boards. That usually means an all-nighter on the computer, and yes, I mean from 9pm until 3am
    or sometimes 5am in the morning, followed by 3-4 hours of sleep. (did anyone notice I've got about 6 new preamp kits for sale in the past month?)
    The typical "day-in-the-life" is up at 9am, 3-4 hours answering emails and receiving new orders, then 3-6 hours packing orders including a quick trip
    to the post office and/or FedEx. 3 or 4 days of the week, add to that actually building amps and preamps for customers,
    and doing modifications or service work on vintage tube audio equipment.
    Makes for a long day, a long week, and no longer getting your orders out in 24 hours unless it's something very simple!
    Hey, what can I say - I love tube audio and sharing it with other DIY'ers.

    looks like the forum time stamp is wrong again, I posted at 10:18 PM (Pacific time) and it is showing up as 1:18 PM, it's off by 12 hours on Eastern time. Right now it is 10:20 PM Pacific, check the time stamp
