Man Overboard!

A place to hang my shit.

Let the crackdown begin!

Posted on September 30th, 2009 in Random thoughts by g-man || 11 Comments

Working inside a government facility has its ups and downs. One of the ups is that they are often slow to realize that some of their IT policies leave a lot of room for people to take advantage of them. The down side is once they realize it they go way overboard and put a strangle hold on resources that have the potential to interfere with real work.

Eventually it will swing back the other way, but until then I can’t read blogs or go to facebook or any of that jazz for a while when I am at work. When I am at home I have been concentrating on my health (going to the gym) and the family and photos. Hence I have been scarce in the cyber world. I hope that I can post a picture and a brief story once in a while and maybe respond to comments.

I shot these recently …

    That bee shot is fascinating.
    And we’ll miss you when you’re AWOL here in blogland, but we certainly understand. My boss occasionally cracks down, too.

    Same thing happens in the corporate world. They swing from one extreme to the other.

    Those photos are beautiful! Love the moon shot.

    Damned kids these days…don’t you know you are supposed to work while you are at work? When the pendulum swings back, we will all be here covered in dust and cobwebs…brush them off and wake us gently :)

    Bummer, dude. The same thing happens at my office as well from time to time and it really cuts into my lack of productivity, LOL. Love ya, mean it!

    I like those photos.

    Have the goons at your government facility tried to put you in front of a Death Panel yet?

    I hate that crap. We have netnanny type crap that blocks every other site you try to get on for whatever arcane reason it comes up with.

    Nice macro work on the bee :o)
