    Default Blocked at Work

    So, anyone else have vhlinks blocked at work?

    I had worked at the same company for almost a year when they started blocking vhlinks (I guess talking to all you guys finally showed up on some report ). I still work there, but my happiness has dipped slightly because I can't get my daily Dave vs Same/Mikey vs. Dave/ Chickenfoot vs. VH 4 debate.

    That being said, I can't be around as much these days because now I have to just read shit like Yahoo headlines at work to stem off the boredom. It's great that after not being on for about a month I can come back and still see Chefcraig posting timely-and-hilarious-pictures, Broken's hugely long posts, and voivod posting news articles to keep me abreast on the weird and interesting stories on the net. Keep up the great work guys

    Maybe you should just try and work. It's what you get paid for, right?
    Just go for it!

    Everything is blocked for me at work-including this and Facebook and all the poker sites. We used to be able to get around the system and view things, however the IT department caught on. Now all we have is the Weather Channel and the company intranet. Swell, now what will I do w/my time at work?

    They've been spying around my job - so I'm on VH Mobile links!!!! Life saver! We get busy times during the night - but right now if I didn't have my phone I'd be freaking.

    I might be doing that soon enough if it ever caught on about my computer time. It's bad enough I can't watch all the tasty YouTube clips from the 'Foot during the day.

    What do they expect me to do all day? Work?

    I'm tempted to being that I have two I-Pods, however, in my other line of work (farming) I don't think having an I-Pod around would be such a good idea (i.e. dropping it in water, on the ground, dust, grease, fuel, etc). Plus when I'm on the farm, I have no real desire to check my email/FB/VH Links. I can wait til I get home. It is only at my casino job late at night when I'm bored out of my skull when I'm tempted to get on the net.

    well I'm in fine company at least!

    I went without the links for about a month a time during my stint at Aarons. That lasted almost a year...sometimes 6-8 weeks would go by without me getting a chance to really check in. Now I'm at this other place, I always have it up and running no matter what I'm doing. I used to also have a window up with pandora but they sent an email out a couple weeks back saying that people using sites like pandora were hogging bandwidth and that we shouldn't use it.

    No one has said anything to me about web usage, I'm always on top of my work and I think they realize that there are times where they just don't have anything for me to do so it isn't much of a problem.

    This is turning into one of my long posts isn't it?! heeheehee
    Stay out of it, dude.

    At my work if you have nothing to do they will FIND you something to do! And if you don't ask for something else to do when you're slow they put it in your review! irritating
    Oh yeah, they "live monitor" us, which is the easier way to read your emails, IMs or see if you're on the internet. Its SUCH a moral boaster I tell ya!!!

    Work? Fuck That!

    Just kidding of course. You don't have to worry, they definitely get their money's worth with my production

    It's kind a steady stream of things to piss us all off I think. First, they block a bunch of sites. Second, they double the amount of production needed to make bonus which of course most of us depend on for our salary. Third, they reduced everyone's pay by five pay days over 5 pay checks even though our department is kicking ass and carrying the company.

    Like someone else said, it's just GREAT for morale.
