> You are paid to be available to SMEs, artists, writers, editors, etc. who might have to ask you a question at 9:00 am or 4:00 pm, and if you're not available when *they're* available (IOW, during those standard office hours), you are delaying *their* work. If you can do your work in 25% less time than it takes everyone else, good for you. Use the extra time for training (yourself or others) or defragging your hard drive or some other useful pursuit.

Just to advocate for the devil for a moment - this argument wouldn't work at my current company or at many other software producers, which have no use for "standard office hours" unless you're actually a receptionist. People straggle in and out at all hours from what I can see. I'm used to a "standard" day and will probably stick to it when feasible, but I seem to be an exception around here. :-)
