What is the longest you have watched a print "print".

Not a contest just wondering.

I tend to watch all of my prints. Its mesmerizing sometimes.

Probably an hour is the longest for me?

I sat in front of my printer with a book and watched it on and off for two and a half hours once.

When my printer first arrived i set it up in my living room on the coffee table and i watched it instead of TV for a while. Ive gone at least 20 minutes at a time without looking away when it was new.

I have cameras on my printers which I view on an iPad in a desk stand all day long while I'm working. Then, I take the iPad downstairs in the evening to continue watching while I'm watching TV. The only time I don't monitor is when I'm sleeping. :) I've done a lot of 72 hour prints, so I guess I spend vast amounts of time half-watching the printers.

I've done my fair share of staring, and staring, and staring. But then it gets to be 2AM...
