MMO and forum addiction is notorious for leading some of us to play or browse when we should probably be doing something else. It hit me when I started browsing the threads today on this cash register I am currently posting on: man, I suck. A cash register in a gift shop, and a guy reading forum threads about fantasy land theory on it? Get back to work, paid by the hour lackey.
As lame as that is, surely there are many out there who have done worse/better. What are some of the more unusual places you or someone you know has been caught playing WoW or reading game related websites? Gone to great lengths to avoid the boss' or girlfriend's eye? We must know!
I've seen plenty people browse the official wow forums in the comp rooms at Uni. Not really getting caught but still funny to see that almost every time I've been in the room, I see someone browsing those forums.
As for playing when you're supposed to do something else ... well, I've played and browsed these forums a bit while on the can a few times if that counts :D
On an unrelated but sort of ironic note. Just yesterday I downloaded this sweet TBC raiding grid from my frienda Alleria guild forums, and I posted it in our guild forums here, only to have Gurg point out that in the lower right corner it commented that it was developed in a post right here on the EJ forums. Here's your sign... Anyhow, I have an office now which helps.
When you extract the zip, if you can, extract it to straight to C:\ so the program startup would be C:\lynx\lynx.bat otherwise you are going to have some trouble with it, and it might not save your cookies properly.
Good luck forum addicts.
as a note, it is somewhat hard to actually make posts that include links with this thing so I had to make this post using Firefox, shame on me.
edit: now with screenshot
I have mine set to blue background with white text, default is black background with white text.
I'm at work right now. I do about 2-3 hours of work and spend the rest of the time browsing FoH/EJ/etc. all day.
I've gotten caught playing WoW at work. Twice. At like noon. And my desk faces a busy hallway. Somehow I'm still here. Although these computers suck total ass and I lost my admin rights a while back when my hard drive died, so I'm out of luck now.
At work. I have one of those stupid low wall cubicals and have been spoken to about reading forums while at work so I've "tried" to cut back. Kind of difficult when you can get your stuff done in a few hours most the time.
