I concur - I've lost count of the times things have come to me as I'm
about to drop off to sleep and I've got up to get right to it. Also,
the temptation to just sort out this or that is sometimes too great. I
can get carried away and spend all evening on a project when I should
be spending time with my family. It's too easy when your daily commute
is ten feet up the hall!

WRT the time difference, it can work for you in the right
circumstances. For example, I'm in UK and one Canadian company for who
I used to work sometimes sent stuff to me via e-mail at the end of
their day. I used the five-hour time difference to turn it around at
the start of my day and have results waiting in their inbox when they
started theirs at 14:00 my time.
