As of yesterday, my work now added "Photobucket" as a list of "forbidden" sites (blocked by firewall). That means I can no longer view (most) or post pics during working hours :( . I work for the DoD, and they block pretty much everything entertainment, (ABC, CBS, etc.), personal, chat, obvious (porn), etc. So, please don't enable a "chat" feature on here. :yes:

I can't believe they don't block e-bay. Even my old work did. I guess a lot of govt. workers like shopping online for bargains :D. It's funny, my old work blocked e-bay, but none of the online stock trading sites. So, you could buy and sell stock all day (like a lot did), but not buy other people's junk.

I hate to say it however I do believe the Boss expects his people to work for their money not visit the web. If I were the boss it would be cause for termination :shades:

Cam,

In all seriousness, the inherent design of these plants is to return to a safe condition. The actions of the operators at TMI made things worse. :fan: :fan: :fan: :shock:

I thought our Department of National Defense was just a phone line to the Pentagon. You mean they let you put dial-up on that? :D

Oh my, I probably should have kept quiet. No -- I don't surf all day at work. I don't get paid hourly either. The 5 min it takes me to check this site is much less than the hourly smoke breaks several others take. I'm very thankful for my job, and don't take it for granted. I work just as hard/long as 99% of everyone else :angel:

:lol: It's allright kkreit01. I comprehend your wave length. Basically i know what you mean, in context of working environment. In my previous job, the management were quite tolerant.

They openly admitted to us, that it was not boot camp. The bosses told us ,they expected results as per production and quality. By the same token, our manager would turn a blind eye, providing we didn't take too many liberties. :)
