Imagine this: No web, no instant messaging, no external email, no phone. Currently I have this at work, too much freaking security. I'm getting used to it, but the first days it was like http://moronail.net/?pic=832

Wan to know the irony of this? There's no control over those tiny USB memories. *sigh*

At both home and work the Internet is a mixed blessing. Communication is important, as is the ability to look up online manuals (e.g. for programming languages) or check if there's a site that has the solution to a problem. Being able to look stuff up yourself avoids the situation where fundamental knowledge is hoarded within your company (by those with the printed manuals). The luxury part comes when lunchtime rolls around and you start reading news sites, etc. These days it's too easy to read the news the whole day, as if e-mail weren't a big enough distraction by itself.

You can pretty much automate a lot of office work and look like you are plenty busy. Very rarely do you actually get paid when you provide more then the standard work load.

Fortunately I managed to obtain development PDF manuals. I'm frequently reinventing the wheel (or using substandard wheels that are already there), and it's kinda challenging (in the fun way) to do it without code sites. I concur with the automation, Baslisks. It's better to work harder once than lightly countless times.
