    Bummed

    I received an e-mail from work (along with everyone in the Co.) that they're monitoring our internet time and will be disciplined, even fired if usage is abused. SO.....I won't be able to frequent the board as often. It's hard for me at home since my husband's job involves many hours of computer work, which leaves me off of it. I will read and think of all of you and respond when I can. Hopefully things will die down and I can get back on at work again. Seems they go through this every so many months!

    Annoying!

    Here in Australia, most workies are banned from internet access as enjoyment is officially not part of their job descriptions (it's hard to feel joy when you are being whipped along with the other slaves)

    Hope it gets better soon

    (also posting at work - don't start for ten minutes! )

    I work in the IT Dept here and we had thought of that a few years ago, but since there is only 3 of us to look after over 80 people throughout the province, there was no time to sit down and actually go through the stats. Thank goodness, otherwise I wouldn't be here because I don't have a puter at hom. Good luck. Can you at least schedule some home puter time, say 2 hrs per week??
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

    Oh yes! I will be able to get on probably daily at home...BUT...with my husband needing it I probably won't be able to repsond to as many post as I could from work. I always made my comments/responses as short as possible so I wasn't on it all that long, but now I'm having withdrawls. WAHHHHHHHHHHHH

    visit here when my computer was broken. I hope you will be able
    to get on the computer as often as you can.

    Well I just told my husband there's a new rule in the house...whenever he's on the computer I have control of the remote! I told him it's not fair he has the computer and the TV. He got off the computer pretty fast! hee hee

    We have two pcs which are connected by a wire and we run this gateway (?) software which allows us both to use the internet connection at the same time

    We are lucky enough to have a broadband modem, so even sharing the bandwidth, we both get a good connection speed

    We have 4 computers and one DSL modem, but all 4 of them can use the DSL at the same time because we have a wireless network set at home for them all. Its great! No wires going anywhere, and all computers are connected to the Internet, and on DSL at that!

    K & L, get a 2nd computer and a wireless network. That way you and your hubby can use the internet at the same time without bothering each other.

    The best thing is to nod , agree with the Boss , then like the Cat , do exactly as you want! They just talk to hear themselves talk , and to try to bully you! Do what you think and know is right , although my advise is coming from a retired person.

    PCB, Im going to PM you for more info re the Wirleless solution.

    We have one PC (kid's room) and two laptops (Me and hubby). The cabling running through the place is driving me insane!!!

    K & L

    Bad luck re monitoring your internet usage at work - the day they do that to me I am SO FIRED!!!!! I really hate my job at the moment, and it's hard enough to be enthusiastic without all the much more enjoyable things like Pet Talk and eBay keeping me "busy"

    Thanks Kay for my great sig & avatar!!!
