They compliment each other.
I just get tired of all the code, results, stats, the thought processes. Sometimes its nice to just do, not think. So the one is a break from the other.
Offshore is like a spa. No booze, plenty of water, plenty of cardio exercise (diving is heavy cardio work), buffet meals, a gym, poor internet mostly so no point in trying to trade. When I'm off I don't do tv or computers, but books. Old school.
Often I have to wait for results. So I put down code and go work, come back in 2 months with full pockets to a solid set of data to work with, rested and fit.
I only work 6 months a year, the rest is 100% dedicated to doing this, no interruptions that I don't want. Of course I have the bonus of choosing any location I want. I always get flown from where ever to where ever and back.
It actually worked bloody well until now. But the fx is now getting to the point where I can't be out of touch anymore. I need to be here to handle stuff. Not for me so much. But I have to make sure my servers or code doesn't go mad and lose money for people. Be kind of selfish to let that happen while I'm out there earning a second income.
