WoW @ Work

Archived from groups: alt.games.warcraft (More info?)

I was just wondering how many Warcraft-ers out there are sitting at
work right now, with limited access to the internet while @ work (damn
corporations!) who are planning there next venture into Azeroth with
only google groups to aid them?

    Unlucky...

    I was playing BG yesterday with a group of about 7 Horde against 8
    Alliance, although we got beaten, was one of the best times I have had
    in it. After the instance finished, one of my team mates proclaimed
    that we should all meet at the same time tomorrow (about 15.30) and in
    the chat window at the same time came "can't @ work".

    very depressing.

    Well I'm seating here at work pondering whether I should try yet
    again to get a group for Stockades or the various Redridge Mountains
    bosses. Haven't had much luck so far. Or should I go back to
    grinding/questing in Dustwood.

    I am in the situation where we have a very tightly restricted internet
    access.
    My boss (who also controls the internet access) sits less than 5 feet
    away from me and can pretty much see everything I do (one day he
    started restricting areas of websites as I went from link to link, the
    back button found me at a "restricted access" webpage), might be
    slightly off topic, but I miss working in the "Big Blue" where nothing
    was controlled and I could probably have installed WoW and my boss
    would have commended me on doing a great job, so little did they care
    about what I was doing....

    Scary thing is I was a developer and since they have sold their
    hardware manufacturing (or soon to have) out to China, software
    development is one of the few things they have left that they
    specialise in...

    For the Horde =D

    Where are the good old days? When I was a co-op student as an undergrad in
    Pittsburgh - this is 1993 or 1994 timeframe - I had to run some experiments
    on some workstations that took literally 15 minutes to upload each iteration
    to the database. My supervisor actually played Duke Nukem 3D with me across
    the network while I was waiting between samples hehe.

    Now, at a big corporation, I'm lucky that I can even use the internet, and I
    have no doubt that my activities are being monitored and someday soon I'll
    be escorted out the door. I can't wait - more time for WoW!

    Guess I'm lucky that my boss lets me have wow installed on my machine so I
    can play at lunchtimes!!

    w00t! :P

    I'm not so lucky ;( I sit at a computer every day all I do is read forums
    and websites about WoW all day -_- If I was allowed to play while I was at
    work I'd be missing a lot less days :)

    That would be a good idea, if my company wasn't so Quality concious and
    every machine is tightly regulated for what software is installed on
    it..... but I feel this should be a post on another group like
    corp.policies.sux or something to that effect :-)

    Hehehe :)
    /hello

    I don't use google groups, as my traffic is monitored. Instead I
    SSH to a remote machine, and use tin :)

    All you need is _one_ single connection, UDP or TCP (doesn't matter) that
    goes through the corporate firewall without alteration. If you satisfy this
    condition, you can do everything, with the correct tools, like tunneling
    through to a remote station which forwards all your traffic normally. It's
    harder if you have absolutely no rights on the machine but by no means
    impossible. There is no blanket recipe though, it really depends on the
    infrastructure.

    If you are local admin on a windows system but have a PITA firewall, take a
    good long look at "openVPN". If you can't install anything, get "putty" on
    a memory stick and copy it to your temp directory for execution. I will not
    explain how these tools work - this is for the adventurous. I won't be
    responsible for any counter-action at your workplace either :) If you are
    not allowed to, don't do it.

    And now my meal-break is over and I have to be productive again as well :)

    I would quite happily take 50% wage cut to get a job like that... what
    is it you do at work? Programmer? QA? Researcher?

    I let all my employees use their computers for leisure activity during
    the work day, providing it's done in moderation. It makes for a much
    better atmosphere.

    Of course, there's only two of us here, and she doesn't play WoW
    anyway, and.. uh-oh, she's coming back....
