I totally feel your pain. About 3 months into this job (which I do enjoy) I was convinced that I'd surf the entire internet before I'm finished. I still think that...one day I'll be surfing and just reach the end, kaput, fall off the internet.

If only we could all at work without shame or you being accused of, you know, wasting time.

Surely there are some sites out there that I don't know about!! It's sad isn't it? My husband and I have that conversation about the end of the internet occassionally. We carpool to work together and during the typical "how was your day" conversation, I will sometimes tell him I got to the end!

I guess I should feel bad for goofing off all day, but I feel like I'm here ready to work - it's not my fault they aren't providing me with something to do! The stupid thing about it is having to "look busy"! You are so right - it would be a dream job if I could just knit the day away!!

I think about changing jobs sometimes, but my boss is incredible - I don't want to jump from the frying pan into the fire!! Been there before

I'll have a look, Stiney!

Unfortunately, I can't view you tube - they have it blocked for some reason.

Some things I can't see because my flash player is outdated

And, most game sites are blocked!!

The two I mentioned specifically are old...at least 5 or 6 years old, so you shouldn't have a problem viewing them.

I was blocked from youtube at my old office, but not my new one. I try to not take advantage of it, or I'd get no work done, ever.

I also have access to Facebook and MySpace here, which were both blocked at my old office, too.

I don't get what the reasoning is for blocking some sites...if they really don't want me to spend a lot of time on line, they should block KH!

Ooh...but I sure hope they don't!!!
