This came up in my other thread and got me wondering how many people use their work computers to check LO.
I do and do it quite often kinda feel bad about it how about you.

I wouldn't really vote because I don't work. But if I worked at a place with computer I would definitely do it if I am not busy.

I check things when I can at work. I try not to let it interfere with my work though. Photobucket and most other online file/picture storage sights are blocked so I usually don't get the opportunity to comment on other peoples work unless I have a chance to view from home.

To be quite frank I usually have more time at work than I do at home. Go figure! ;)

Cheers,

-Mike

I've been told that, in our lunch hour, we can use the internet for personal interests. So that's when I'm on LO.

I do kind of feel guilty about it, sometimes. But, not having the net at home, and work being my only reliable point of access, I can't really get around it.

I keep waiting for it to be blocked, though. I'm sure it will happen one day, but I really hope not. What will I do in my lunch hour?

Speaking of which, it's about time for me to go...

Same feeling here man, I'll go on it as well if I get in early in the morning, and I may check it in the day, but I don't let it damage my output.

I check LO every morning I come to work.
Since I moved I cant get an Internet connection, so I have little choice

I spend most of my working day on here or surfing the net.
I work for the largest brewery in the world (inbev, the guys who make Stella) but
last year 80% of the u.k staff were made redundant and 90% my work load was moved
overseas, so now im forced to work the same hours as before but with only a fraction of my workload to do. This leaves me with around 4 hours a day to kill.
I have even thought about writing a novel whilst im at work, but so far I spend my days surfing the net for any information I can find regarding Zoats and Tyranid mind slaves. oh happy days !

At my work the internets free and unblocked but use is very frowned apon outside of breaks so getting caught on LO is not a good thing.
Not saying I dont do it i wouldn't get nearly as much time on here if I didnt but still something I know I should cut down on.

I spend most of my time at university where we do have free access to computers, but I have made a decision to forego internet surfing at school to prevent detrimental procrastination of homework.

However, I also work as a medical technician at a hospital, and on night shifts between rounds, if we’ve got no new emergency admissions, I usually surf the internet to keep myself awake and alert. It’s a good opportunity to get in some really long rambling posts, but on the other hand I don’t have access to my fluff source material which can be annoying when I need a very specific reference to make a key point in a debate.

At least there’s no risk of me browsing LO at the expense of my work; my work tends to complain loudly and threaten lawsuits if I don’t pay it my full attention. ;)

At lunchtime I might have a quick look around to see what's happening, but generally I don't.
