I'm working from home, but all I want to do is loaf and browse cnn...
Be specific, OP.
Are you working or are you sick?
What are you going to put on your timesheet?
Aim higher, honey.
Either way, get off the Datalounge!
[quote]Be specific, OP. Are you working or are you sick?
R1? It's not either/or when you can connect remotely to your workplace's network and do your work on a computer.
That's not what I asked the OP.
What will today be counted as: work day or sick day?
R1? If he's working, then it's not PTO (what company has "sick days" anymore?).
R6, I work for a huge company and we have 23 sick days a year, which is separate from vacation time.
R7 - that's pretty good. I work for the government and we have 8 sick days per year. I'm not complaining, we have plenty of other benefits.
Doesn't sound like is working hard, just hardly working, r4 r6, as OP plainly states.
You really are a pill, you know that?
[quote] (what company has "sick days" anymore?)
Mine does. 10 a year. It's a big media corporation.
I had no idea taking a sick day had become a moral issue.
Fix yourself a simple homemade chicken soup, OP. You will feel light years better.
And your mother would think me remiss if I didn't remind you to drink lots of water and get plenty of rest.
and jerk off a lot.
That was me yesterday, OP. I am currently unemployed but doing project work at home. I feel like a slug. Yesterday, CNN was on all damn day and my brain is now in a fog.
OP is obviously not working. Take a sick day before you ruin it for everyone else. When I work from home or any of my co-workers do, I make sure to engage even more than usual so that people don't abuse the privilege.
My company gives 10 sick/personal days. We send people home who come in sick. If you can be productive from home, great, but don't think you're a hero for showing up here and getting the rest of us sick.
I'm home today - work and classes cancelled due to severe weather.

Have already jacked off once!
"I'm working from home, but all I want to do is loaf and browse cnn.."
All that lube must make your pencil dialing impossible, OP.
I do not really get your point at all, r15. Are you drunk?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
