    Never mind that online surveys are not scientifically significant, how does this compare with all of you in the UK (or anywhere else)?

    The entire story is at Yahoo.

    I think those stats are probably lower than what they will really be.

    I also think everyone tries to blag a few minutes or even longer every day when they are at work.

    I am at work whilst writing this, I actually dont have much to do tonight but have to be here in case the press crew need me to output extra plates.

    I plan on getting through chapter 12 and 13 of the A+ all in one guide tonight.

    I have read your book now Trip but will be refering back to it after I have finished the A+ book.

    The problem with people working attitudes is not many people I know enjoy their jobs I hate mine but have no option untill I can afford to move away from the area I am in as the jobs round here are mainly low paid manufacturing jobs.

    Also people do work hard no matter what type of job they do and get paid crap for it, so people think I am entitled to a few minutes each day for me because I dont feel apreciated by the boss.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s more than that. Glancing through the URLs in the firewall log (for any network I support) the ‘top 10’ urls are generally not work related. The usual suspects (youtube and bebo) are always there! :dry

    Edit: Dont get me started on people who waste time on email either....

    Honestly I would have to say I go online once every couple of hours for about 5-10 min just to clear my head from trying to figure things out sometimes.
