So my supervisor whispered to me today that the operations manager has noticed every time he walks nearby where I sit he notices me on another website and he's irritated by it. My supervisor asked me to decist with this activity. He either notices me while I'm on MySpace or this website...but most likely this website.  :innocent:

I wonder if this affects my raise? :headwall:

There are many things that I would like to say to him, one being for him to get the frack - yes, I said it, Rob - back to Salt Lake, but I'm not certain whether I want to be fired from this job.  :no: :roll:

Tell 'em you're plotting to taking to over the world and you're gathering followers here on the internet. :)

Yes, our following has already breached the halls of the House of Representatives; it's only a matter a time before they infiltrate Corporate America.

In some companies, it is grounds for dismissal to be accessing anything "non-corporate" during business hours.  Where I used to work (ACNielsen), all internet access was tracked and monitored.  Although we had full and complete access to the internet, we were only permitted to do research relevant to our job.  Chat programs, forums (fori?), myspace,... it was all strictly forbidden.  After all, that was company time, and I respected that.

I'd suggest you check your company's internet access policy.  (Of course, if you ask about it, you just might be monitored extra heavily!)

All of our work is done online as that's where our database lies...on servers...as we are a dotcom. The internet policy is pretty liberal...so imagine how liberal I've been.  :o

Maybe I should start a poll...  how much of your work day do you spend online doing "non-work" activities?

hmmm ;)

I'll be the first to admit, I've snuck on the internet at work to check my E-mail or to do something quick, but I try do it at 6am so my boss can't catch me.  :$ :angel:

Do we even have to ask if I log onto the net at work...***snicker... (I am doing so now!!!):P

Yes for the longest time, Work was my only access point to the web... now adays that I have the net at home, I do log on several times a day to the net to check HF, twice (beginning of shift and end) for Myspace and then leave MSN open 24 hrs...

My job does require surfing to different vendor sites and lots of emails but I will admit I am grateful for when I have help (interns) as it frees me from stress to work the net more...

But I try to be mindful that I am on the company dime and limit my activites.. although I will leave a radio station streaming or activate a tv show from Peekvid or alloftv to play in the background to listen to on my headphones while I am doing other stuff...

OK-it comes down to what are you payed to do? surf the net and the "evil server space and over head memory eating"  "myspace" or complete a specified set of duties and activities? consider the question -- and consider that most places are tightening up thier internet polices becsue of the the time wasted on net messages, texting and such.... so to work or not work that is the question.

Where I work we have an "acceptable use" policy which provides for occasional non work use.  However, video streams and Myspace/Youtube etc are blocked as is VOIP.  IM is not installed (although since I am the IS manager I am "testing" it).

We have had people in trouble for too much internet use, someone whose whole day seemed to be selling stuff on e-bay was the worst example.

I had to make the decisions a while back to stop using messenger at work.  At first it wasn't a big deal, but then I realized how much time it was consuming.  I though I could get work done between IMs, but realized I was kidding myself and the quality suffered.   So I stopped turning them on and I am now more productive.  Now I will still check boards and messages during breaks and lunch.

I am in somewhat agreement with Flox... the only thing I don't agree with is that with some jobs, you will have acceptable downtimes and while you should not go to certain sites, they won't flog you either...

I found IM doing the suck your life away trick too... that is when I redoubled my concentration on work and let the IM ring until I could answer it.

will power people...will power...I just wish I had some... :shock: :wtf: :P

I've been told to quit doing this internet thing. I've really cut back on posting, but I'm still drawn to reading the forums.
