I'm glad I didnt have to worry much about the internet much before I retired and I'll bet that figure is way to low considering survey was based on what employees said. I wonder what the real numbers are . Someone should do one based on several larger companies server use.

I'm also suprised these larger companies arent auditing employee internet use but the people that make those decisions are to busy looking at **** sites and in forums themselves. I think there is going to be a huge backlash on our GNP and Trade balance in the end.

Mos stop reading this and get to work, somebodys got to keep my checks coming in!!!

50%???? I think you meant like 75% of the time. On a slow day I know I am on here about 60% but then there are days I'm only on 10%- they act like I work here

Quess you dont want to hear about the custom paint going on my V-Star 1100???

When I was Your Age, I worked 40 hours flex time for IBM, spent 4-8 hours a day behind the wheel of a taxi, And had a house remodeling / excavation company that my sons did most of the work. All at the same time. And I owned and maintained 4 taxi'* myself in an owner-operator co-op. (O... I forgot walked to school 5 miles in the snow)(uphill both ways)

Now keep my checks coming in.

People are driven by what interests them.
