Hi Dawn, Nice Crack
There's something to be said for getting up really early and being at work at the crack of dawn for these ungodly early-morning confernece calls. There's a zen-like stillness in the office. Nobody's around. The phone's not ringing. E-mails aren't pouring in. Once the call is over I can focus on the tasks at hand and get a good deal done long before most people's day begins. Excepting, of course, those pesky Europeans.
