Daily Contributors: How do you do it!

There are many users of LQ who seem to reply to questions countless times per day. I am wondering how you find the time - do you do this after work as a hobby, don't need to worry about a job, or is this somehow within your line of work?

Thanks for the help,

I own my business, so I've got the bosses permission to LQ as long as the work gets done.

School ended a week or so ago for me!

So I have copious amounts of free time. Which I spend either forum hopping, sleeping, browsing the web, or booting windows to shoot stuff. (Flashpoint for teh win. )

Approaching retirement---more time spent on looking ahead to what comes next.
If that doesn't wash, then just go with good old-fashioned obsessive-compulsive disorder...
