The struggle is real when I am perusing the forum at work (oops) and can't read stories on blogs because the internet blocks "personal sites." Sigh...

Anyone else ever visiting the forum when they shouldn't be?? LOL

It's one of my always-open tabs at work - but I don't usually read any stories, just thread posts. Sometimes I'll read a story on my break or lunch, but not often.

I'm a consultant and work from home. So yeah, forum is often open for business. Even when I'm supposed to be! :)

I usually check in on the forum whenever I stop in at the office (like now.)

Go to work, VPN in to home.  Problem solved.  Writing, perusing web sites, whatever else is appropriate (or not).

The first time I tried that it didn't work; the firewall blocked my VPN connection, so I logged into the firewall and changed the rule.  I put in a ticket and documented everything, so it was perfectly legal.

There has to be some advantage to being me.  It's not much, but you take what you can get.

During a post-contest week, I have been known to load PDFs of stories from the forum and bring my laptop to internet-free zones (like my kid's music class Embarrassed) to review...

I'm on the forum and at work right now. I unfortunately can't open any Google DOCS at work, so I just skim titles and sometimes pull them up on my phone. LOL.
