I do! I would go INSANE on slow days if I couldn't surf the web at work. There is a block on some sites (such as Facebook, eBay, Hulu, etc). The only thing is that last week I started to be unable to connect to JM at work. I think it has something to do with the recent server change or something. It's kind of a bummer .

Yes. At home I do have two systems set up - my work computer and my own desktop computer, so I can switch to dual screen mode or just have my personal stuff up on one system. However, I do take my work computer downstairs and inevitably the personal sites come up.

I'm always on sites like FB and JM at work I figure, I get all my work done, so it shouldn't matter. Of course, it's not really "allowed"...

Some sites are blocked but fortunately JM isn't. The only time I usually get on JM or go to other websites is when I'm eating my lunch.

As long as my work gets done on time and its quality isnt suffering, they dont care. We arent really supposed to technically I guess.

As long as we arent downloading/watching porn or whatnot. Some sites are blocked though, thankfully most new sources/facebook/JM arent.

Sometimes i will check my e-mail or read some news articles. I usually use my phone if I'm doing personal things on the internet during work hours so they can't track what I'm doing. I don't think they are too strict about it if your work is getting done and you're clocking out on time, but I'm paranoid!

Yes I do. We aren't supposed to at least not while we are working.

But I takes breaks from time to time and my work gets done correctly.

Of course! People who work 8hrs + a day are going to use work computers for some personal online stuff. There is no way we won't and most companies understand that. I think it really only becomes a problem when the quality of work begins to suffer or the amount of time online is extravagent.

Thank You Alethia for the Siggy!

same here, we are just told to stay away from social and dating sites. We are pretty liberal and since everybody appreciates the freedom and does not abuse it, we have not had any of the policies become any stricter.
