Guilty as charged May 28, 2008

Me too I hope somebody soon develops a taser-like job-focusing torture device that can be attached to the neck and goes off as soon as Firefox detects funny websites, Youtube, Wikipedia, and the likes. Don't tase me bro! Oops, I did it again.

As long as you can put a limit on that... I do, work comes first, but everybody deserves a break, don't you think;)?
Cheers,

Wow, an admirable 18% don't do it... May 28, 2008

To make matters worse, I'm thinking of starting an off-topic thread where we can share some of the sites we're most guilty of "procrastinating" in...
If there's been a similiar discussion before, let me know.

instead of coffee klatsch May 28, 2008

Most of us don't have colleagues next door with whom they could meet for a short coffee break.
So while others get their daily dose of office gossip, I click through Youtube, find information on extremely important subjects on Wikipedia, read an online article or whatever.

A question to the 18% who marked "No" in this poll: What do you do instead - I can't believe you never take a break between breaks?

Good heavens, NO!!!! May 28, 2008

Whatever would the boss say?

PS: I guess it's one of the advantages we have as freelancers - we're all bosses, so the rules don't apply .

Google maps May 29, 2008

I like to play around with the "street view" function of Google maps and try to find places I'm interested in so I can see them up close.
