    We often have a Saturday worker thread. I thought I'd ask if it was easy (or OK) for you to use your BlackBerry or work computer to visit CrackBerry while at work.

    I usually do 3 or 4 times a day. Today, it's been more. But I am about to leave the office. You all who are still there, have a good one.

    I've been here since 4am and will not leave until noon. Good thing the boss isn't here so I can surf the web.

    It's good to be the boss. I'm the boss, too. But we all have to watch what we do - at least with bigger organizations. We monitor internet usage, but the only real flags are the usual -- shopping, porn, music downloads.

    (That is one UGLY llama, EW)

    It doesn't matter at my job as long as work gets done. But the funny thing is that I can play on my phone or the web but I can't use my cell for phone calls. But I can't complain I do got a phone on my desk. But I hardly ever use it

    I can visit the crackberry site from my work pc or use my blackberry at work. I am a computer tech, though, so it just fits within the guidelines of acceptable sites since CB contains so much useful information.

    Oh yea, the IT types get to go anywhere. If I need to download anything, I have to go ask them to do it for me. It pays to take care of those guys in the IT cave -- it's usually more expensive than tossing a bunch of bananas through the door. It does pay -- I got access from one of my buddies to a bunch of classic computer games and an emulator to play them on my desktop -- Mrs. Pacman! Yes! I do have to buy them a Starbucks once or twice a week, but it's worth it.

    I work a rotating schedule of 2 nights 2 days then 2 off, so I rotate in and out of weekends. I have to work 16x0100 tonight and 0800x16 tomorrow. I am on the road a lot doing investigations, so the BB will get a workout tonight and tomorrow. I am on the train as we type. I don't have a supervisor over my shoulder. As long as cases get closed, all is good. Gearing up for a 20 day vacation!!!

    Some bosses aren't too bright. Happy crackberry fed employees are loyal employees. The big boss at work caught me visiting CB During our management staff meeting. I spent about an hour after the meeting helping him download the CB wap icon, lol. He gets a sprint BB with unlimited everything! Me? I get a Motorola direct connect POS. Well, it does have a great camera, but I find I use my personal Curve more and more.

    Howdy to all you hard working folks, somebody has to keep the Planet spinning.

    The thread reminded me of a story. Back in the day, when the network needed fixing, I got the call.

    Saturday morning shift, geeks sitting at computer consoles that rival the Huston Space center. Multiple networks feeding the console from SCADA through host connections and TCP/IP.

    When Lotus 123 gets errors, it get the high severity treatment and my beeper goes beep.

    Everything looked fine, 'till I spotted the addition to the network on several stations. The night shift geeks had installed multiplayer Doom in a hidden location. The changes they made, installing IPX, gave up the game.

    Restoring the defaults cured the problem and a post-it note with a heads up to remind them to restore when they were done, got me a free pass at Starbucks.
