Oh yeah!

My Sales org frowns heavily on this. That's why most of my posts lately are short and right to the point.

I've been spotted a couple of times, but no "talks" yet. As long as I produce, no one cares.

The thing is...if IT looked into my activity, they would see that WW is the only site I visit all day. I'm not out there surfing all over the place.

Pretty much on an hourly basis.

Owner could care less as long as i get my stuff done and keep the boys in the shop in check!

Wakeworld is perfect because it never pops up these irritating noises or songs like other sites. Nothing says "I'm goofin' off" faster than a little ditty blaring out of the speakers.

Browsing WakeWorld is part of my job description. It isn't worded exactly like that, but it's close enough!

I like wakeworld because the board format is so outdated it looks like you're looking at a database file or one really suspects that it's a message board.

My boss is on wakeworld almost the whole day!

"keep up with the current trends in wakeboarding" I believe is the exact wording...

But Tonis, if you blow my cover I'm gonna KICK YO ASS!!!

Alt-tab doesn't work here. They are fast and quiet! No warning at all

If Dave could make the board look just like, I would be dialed!

Maybe we could have different "skins" that look like common business MS Outlook, Salesforce, CRM on demand...

I call it "market research" also. But I am the boss so it makes it easy.

The big boss, my wife, isn't too happy with it on the weekends.

I have lots of windows open so when I hear someone coming I can hit any box be on a business site quick. But I have been busted and had a "talk to" before. I feel it breaks up the monotony and actually helps me work better after a few minutes looking around.

My boss is too busy on his college football forum to notice me on here. Guess it works for both of us.

Here is an email from a dept manager I received near the end of this past May: "The Internet log report for May indicates that you have been on the Internet 63 hours so far in May with over 25,000 hits. Before I assume that this is a mistake and ask IS to double check the report I'd
appreciate your comments. Are you doing something for work that involves accessing the Internet? Help me to understand what's
happening....." 95% of that is probably this site!

Bob, what do you do?
Old     (etakk7)      Join Date: Apr 2006       10-10-2007, 11:54 AM Reply   
Bob, I think that's all of our biggest fear.

I was going to say you left the internet windows open and weren't surfing, but they got you on the number of hits!

Erik, I tried that excuse, but it didn't work. Isaac, I work at a large multi-specialty clinic.
Not sure where they come up with 63 hours? Seems impossible. I think they assume each click is worth a certain amount of time or something? I'm a fast clicker. I told her I do a lot of surfing over lunch and between patients and she just said watch your internet use.
