My own research shows that browsing porn makes great substitution for coffee, rises blood pressure without side effects like headache next day. I will definitely recommend it for male employees.

Hi,
In able to cure the side effect of drinking coffee, you need to take a lesson from those cultures involving with coffee -- coffee grower countries. Myself, I learned from Vietnamese people. One thick cup in the morning after breakfast. That's it.
Too much porn you will age before your actual age, like smoking and alcohol. I wish that I still have the link available.
Regards,
MCao

When I've seen management come down hard on web-surfing it's not because it's a productivity problem. It's a control issue. Also because it 'looks bad'.
Companies who make too much of this are showing that their management really doesn't have a clue. They used to run campaigns cutting the use of paper or paper clips. Now it's web-surfing....

It may not be long (20-30 yrs) before everyone can choose to have a Brain Internet wireless link. That should show the pointy-haired bosses!
While not quite like having a new brain, the end of this century may see that.

What will be next ? UV Scanners for eyes,
No fudgy image storing but the real thing.
No more forgetfulness...

I just completed an assignment which shows exactly how much web-surfing can help improve productivity. We're setting up Cactus-based in-container testing for a major project using JSP, servlets, and EJBs. I took over for another engineer who got hung up. I have every book available in the UK which discusses Cactus, which was enough to get me through the first major problem. But I ran into a Class Not Found error on Friday which stumped me for 1 1/2 days. Yesterday I devoted to googling various things and searching Java user BB's. I found a decent code example at length (the example at Jakarta Cactus was insufficient for my purposes) and solved the problem easily and quickly.
Back in the pre-web days I suspect this would have taken me twice as long to sort this kind of problem. Plus I wound up learning a lot about JUnit and Cactus!

Hi,
In my POV, I rather grant internet access to certain position in the company than every worker bees. It saves me money on variety of fronts, licenses, security, productive-time waste, etc. If the organization structures around internet, then I have no choice to let every worker bees access to internet and have sys admin to restrict their visit sites.
Regards,
MCao
