hi-perf-2000,
thanks for the tip. I tried it and now it will be less conspicuous when I'm surfing. I hate minimizing when I hear the door open it seems too obvious. Nobody here at work is into the boating thing.

I work at home, and am always on the computer. Mr P sort of got in trouble at GM though, so he has to be careful. I think they are on his case anyway since sometimes he tows his boat to work in the morning so he can hit the lake in the afternoon.
Just this morning I found out our CAD guy at the main office got fired. The owners wife was installing some new software on the office computers and she found a lot of porn sites and pictures downloaded on his computer. The poor guy just moved into his first home two weeks ago and now a week before Christmas is out of a job. I would hate to be him, having to tell his wife what happened.

The only time I'm here is during work. I don't get in trouble for OSO but I don't get anything done either.
hey, gotta have priorities right.

We just got a new server that is more accessible to our home office so I have to wonder how much they will be checking on us now. Knowing my luck, lots!

There's usually alot of items of interest that come across on OSO but I have nobody to share them with here at work. I have to wait till I get together with my boating buddies. Of course there are some OT items that people are interested in. An example would be the
thread, "Saddam and Photoshop". We all got a kick out of the pics. Shared with fellow workers, not the bosses.

Alt-Tab!

And I keep a busy spread sheet - with colors - on the other page, just in case. I don't really get hassled based on the nature of my work, (always out on the web doing research anyway) but it's always good to be careful...

OSO is more important than work.
