Outlaw calls it right. They are just going through the motions to get their time in. Actual productive hours for them are meaningless now.
I posted one time about arriving on a tropical island by getting off the ferry. Everyone had to walk near the little square nearby. The pioneers were sitting on a bench there in the square with their mags displayed on their laps.
The whole crowd was a good 20 yards or more away from them, but if they approached people, they would not have such wonderful seats and they would not be able to continue their personal conversation. All that mattered was the "time."
