When you work on computers all day it tends to be easy - have you any idea how long some servers need to reboot?

Trouble is I have to grab a few mins whenever I can - often have to dash off in the middle of things - as I do now!!!

Normally in the office from 7 till 6ish

So have plenty time to squeeze in some rib.net action besides if you get your Nokia N70 sorted out traffic jams are a lot less hassle.

Read a study lately about how much time gets wasted on folks surfing when they should be working. As a boss, I know if I took the internet away for casual surfing there would be uproar. There is software is out there to prevent this, so what has the internet become, a bit of off work, relaxing break time, or a productivity loser ? Some of my guys don't really take breaks but enjoy a quick spin on the web, so no problem? but there are others who take it to extremes .... codders stylie

I think its down to the fact that so many people working in 'IT' if they are in front of a computer its easy to get sidetracked just like it is for me now whilst I'm supposed to be revising for Physics.
