As I'm trying to write this, the damn WiFi in our building keeps crapping out on me. So as of this moment right now, my burn out is coming from 'dated technology'.

One of the things that can be beneficial working for the MoSho and the odd hours we work is we don't really have to deal with constant interruptions. Of course, once the show is over we do have a few hours where we do get interrupted, so I can only imagine what it's like having an full 8 hour work day with interruptions.
