Default OSO at work

Has anybody been reprimanded for OSOing at work?
Or you sneaky enough?

I'm on the same page as Craig

Cant get caught when you monitor yourself But i still have to watch when people walk in the office.

Here is a little trick i learned for a quick hide.....

Keep OSO running in one window, and something work related in another window. Scroll OSO threads using the arrow/pageup/pagedown keys, and use the mouse only when necessary (like clicking on a thread to get into it from the main section). You can use the ALT+LEFT ARROW key to go "BACK" to the main section (so you dont need the mouse click BACK every time).

This is where i get sneaky:

The i Keep my left thumb on the ALT key, and left pointer finger on the TAB key (while using the right hand to scroll the thread). When someone comes in the room, Hold down the ALT key and hit the TAB key and let go of the TAB key.....This quickly will 'flip flop' back to the other window containing the work related program.

I do it this way because it keeps my hands off the mouse, and doesn't make me appear to be 'surfing' as much. You can always tell when someone is surfing when they are not supposed to.....because they quickly go to click on the minimise or close window when you walk in. My way is way less obvious, and you will be less likely to get snagged.
