    You guys are extremely luck to be able to have access to it.
    They are extremely lucky. I have never tried to access DWT from work. Everything I do on my work computer is directly related to the work I am doing at that time. Am I the only regular on DWT who is consistently busy enough at work to not have time to play online anywhere?

    While I haven't been around too much lately - I also don't "trivialize" my work ... it's my own company, I'm busy, and time is money. So Mandabella - I also always save the Disney fun for after work. Always.

    And I recently had to reconfigure our firewall since a few employees were, well you know... (It's a completely different story when you're the business owner!!)

    I'll have to check our computers at work and see if our company blocks WDWRadio.

    As for the busy at work comments... I am a technical project manager for Wachovia's Internal Support areas. I am always busy and work my rear end off.

    I used DWT as my occasional break after a rough meeting or three hour long issue I had to work through to resolution. It is BECAUSE I am always busy and work my rear off that I enjoyed DWT while at work. It was a momentary break from the insanity.

    When I am home I am with my family... something I feel is more important than my work... I don't get online much at all. So, accessing DWT was usually limited to those few breaks at work rather than trying to find time at home.

    Let's not assume that because one accesses a forum at work that they are not busy or are trivializing their work. To be very honest, that offends me.

    Jenn, I know MandaBella wasn't pointing you out specifically. There are/were several others that gave the appearance that was what they were doing.

    Oh I'm sure of it. Just want to be careful where we go with comments like that. Honestly I believe Amanda's comment was benign. Thanks though Brian.

    Sorry if you interpreted my comments as directed. I guess I've been humored? angered? over the years by so many who spend time "at work" on this and every other site. Relaxing on personal time is completely different.

    I agree, Bama Jenn! Working 8-10 hours straight being busy all the time, one needs a break here and there to come on the site for 15 minutes and escape...I find it makes me more refreshed to take a break sometimes, then you can be more productive after. And I don't think going on the site for 15 mins here and there and at lunch makes me any less of a hard worker than those that don't go on.
