    Claimed overtime so far this month 56 hours at time and a half.

    Average 10 hours per day (not including overtime, work from 8am to 6pm) so that makes me 256 hours this month :D

    I once did 26 days straight (no break) of on average 14 hour days, there were some days where I was putting in 18 hours.

    I think I managed 230 hours of over time that month and all in all I did 380 hours. It was a massive migration of NT4 - AD, Exchange 5.5 - Exchange 2007, Virtualisation (ESX) and SAN storage.

    I've worked 12-on, 12-off, 24-on, 24-off shifts in the Army. That equals 360 hours in a 30-day month, which would legally be about 200 hours overtime. Unfortunately, when you're in the service, you're owned by the government.

    There were multiple all-nighter editing sessions that I pulled for Self Test. The outsourced writing was horrible, and I couldn't let it be published in the state it was in. I'd sometimes work 36 hours straight, get 4 hours sleep, and get up and do it again. I was miserable, and I eventually left because of it.

    I don't keep track of hours anymore. I work until the job is done. :)

    I have also done 300 hours and that was just with one job.

    Since I am working two jobs at the moments I am actually doing 104 hours a week :blink

    I don't normally count the hours that I do now as it works itself out (eg work more one week, work less hours a week later), however in my previous life (healthcare sector) I use to regularly do 50 to just over 70 hours per week.

    Wow I'm gald I'm not alone working silly hours but a lot of you guys beat my "top score" hands down!

    I'm lucky because my working week is only 35 hours, practically part time compared to some of you.

    I wonder how many hours we've done unpaid? Its probably not even quantifiable

    My standard week is 37.5 hours - best I've managed is 200 at work, but could add a few more on after that for studying.

    ...... what I'd give for a job that isn't so restrictive!
