Friday fun: What's your guilty pleasure?


This question is for developers:  After a long week, what kinds of things do you do to wrap the week? Is it a light task, or do you jump into something brand new so you have a head start on Monday?


I'm looking for some ways to use my Friday afternoons productively, but in a way that might not require really heavy lifting after a long week.

I'm not a developer, but I suggest snuggling down with technology news related to your field. Sometimes it's easy to get lost in the daily tasks or projects, but it's also good to step away from it and see what's going on in the world related to your development expertise.

It gives you a chance to broaden your perspectives and also to keep up with relevant changes. Plus it will rest your mind and then when you go back to your usual work, you'll be fresh and you may have some new ideas to bring to the table.
