Not really going anywhere, but new management put a tight rope around Internet use at work. So I will not be able to log in during the day much. And my evenings are short. I work till 7:30 PM. I'll do what I can of course. I have no plans of quitting this place.

Glad to hear that. Hope you get some chances to drop in around here. You may have to use the phone app.

Little visits are better than none at all Charlie. Hope they don't make other aspects of the workplace difficult for the workers.

i just don't understand the attitudes today of employees using company time on their (or the office's) computers--playing their computer games, catching up their fb profiles, surfing the net, etc. in my book at the very least, this is stealing company time. concurrently, there is a widely accepted practice of sales people who carry on lengthy personal conversations on their cells, while keeping their customers waiting. whatever happened to professional standards, pride in one's work, the whole concept of work ethic? just call me old school....
