AHHH I feel a rant coming on...

I just came out of a meeting at work where all of us were informed that we will no longer have access to ANY websites that are not approved by the owner! That means all I get to ever look at again during the day is FedEx, UPS, The Blue Book, BuildPoint and Office Depot!!!!! AHHHHH no more VB at work?!!?? What am I going to dooooooo?!?


No more emails, no more posts that make me laugh when my desk is empty.. no more getting pretty desktop themes and screensavers.. no more reading up on feng shui .. searching for cool vegan clothes and shoes and how I'm going to decorate my new house.. no more anything damnit! Not even on our breaks or lunch hours.. how crappy is that?? I totally understand why they are doing this but it sucks big booty that now I can't even check my bank account online once in awhile.


Well, at least now I have even more of a reason to talk my bf into getting a cable modem at home .. our Netzero is fu*king slow and I hate being on the internet at home unless I totally have to be.

So this shall be my farewell post from the normal business hours of 8-5 pacific standard time.. now I have to try even harder to look busy at my desk whenever I get slow.

I'll try to check back tonight or tomorrow night to see if anyone even misses me..

I was blocked for like a year and then one day it magically reappeared. I've had it for quite a while now. I dread the day it gets blocked again. And I feel it's only a matter of time.
I feel your pain.

Be sure to stop in from time to time from home!

Sneak in a dial-up modem, you have voice mail, right?


Yeah, that sucks. Are they really too poor to afford the bandwidth or are they just jerks reading from the alleged ebay guide to company morale?

That sucks, dirtdiva.
You really should get a cable moden for your home. I would never go back to dial-up. Good luck in talking your bf into it!

Well I guess they are changing the settings over the weekend.. so here I am at 11:30 am sneaking online. I am moving soon so I'm DEFINITELY getting a cable modem once we move and get new services hooked up. NO WAY would I leave VB.. I have too much fun here w/you all!

Yeah what is up with everyone going on vacation and sh*t right now?? I guess because summer's almost over.

My company is just doing this because we all check our personal emails and shop online and recently their was a porn incident with one gentleman who no longer works here.. so now we can only have access to "business-related websites". WHATEVER! I'm still going to be on a few times a week once I get home so I'll catch you guys later.

Hey... I did my thread because I'm not at home because of my sister's birthday! Yet... I'm still on VB... oh well.


We have that at school, too, because some of the boys were looking at [naughty] websites. *cough PERVERTS cough* And to think that they were only twelve at the time.

In a bet with the system administrator, I actually learned how to bypass school security (didn't use it though).
