Where Do You Read This Forum?

This isn't a poll - but if someone would like to turn the topic into one, please go ahead! Question is, do you read the forum at home or at work? I do both and I bet that if you're reading this at work, you really shouldn't be ! ! :lol:

Ha Ha, That is why this forum works so well. People having a quick scan through no matter where they are, and helping one another with any problems they might have. We really do appreciate all the time you can give to the forum.

 

Thanks

Where ever I can get a connection to the internet - we are retired so don't have to pretend that we are working :wub:

Only work part time and too busy to go onto the net even if I had an inclination! Only go on CT while at home. PC is in privacy of the bedroom - although it is a family computer :blink: which basically mean no privacy at all :( I get on here before the kids get home from school or later in the evening when they are in bed!

Always at home . . we have strict policy on the use of the internet at work and looking at leisure forums is strictly not on the 'allowed list'.

 

Simple rule at work, work use only, nothing else!

We work from home so both. It is interesting to see how many people work from home.

I'm here on the computer and broadband connection the company I work for supplied sat at home in my office (spare room!).

 

I'm field based, so they provide everything. As long as I dont take the ***** or surf for p**n, then I am OK. Try to only access during the evenings, just so no questions are asked.

 

Now waiting for my own broadband installation next week, so I can do whatever I like, even in company time! Just finished assembling and installing XP on a second computer for my wifes business use. Then I can start building number 3 for my private business interests outside of work. ... phew. ... cant wait to see my electricity bill next month!

Hi all

I browse at home in the evenings mainly but do try and have a quick look at work when possible.

I agree with Steve's comment and for some time now I've been quite attracted to the idea of working from home, either self-employed or for a company. I will soon be made redundant from my current job and was planning a career change next year anyway, so please don't get the wrong impression - I'm not being 'nosey' ; I wondered what those of you who work from home actually do, just to get some ideas going. Also, could anyone provide any web links on the subject. Perhaps a new thread could be started . . . ?

One thing to think about when working from home is how it's difficult to stop domestic life involvement during the day and then work carrying on into the evenings.

Sometimes it's better to devoice the two by getting premises. ...or end up devoiced :unsure:

Agree - it's always difficult not to offend people who don't respect or understand your home is a workplace during the day when they "pop round for a chat" :(

Working from home for yourself has its advantages and disadvantages.

 

Today I started work at 7am took my kids to school / nursery at 9 worked again until 12, then walked to the post office (exercise and fresh air) made lunch and worked till 2pm.

 

Then had a meeting with local head teacher (I'm a governor) until school out time when I picked older child up and walked him home. Did a little more until 5 when I collected his brother from Nursery and then played with them both and read them a story until bed time.

 

Had an evening meal and then back to work at 10pm - break at midnight to post his - and surf for a while then I guess its back to work until 2 or 3 am.

 

Today overall I will work for 14-15 hours (and no time wasted commuting), tomorrow who knows - once the England v Pakistan test starts on Saturday I will do very little whilst its on TV!)

 

I love what I do and how I do it - I guess I'm a bit of a night owl but once you've worked for yourself it is bloody hard to imagine working for someone else. I started on my own at 28 and will never go back into a 9 - 5 job. I'm a qualified accountant so I can work virtually anywhere.

 

One of the drawbacks for me is the service I offer to some clients involves me working whilst away on holiday - competing vat and payroll etc - email and mobile phones makes this very easy though and I can normally go away for a month without any stress.

 

My advice to anyone considering it would be - get a seconfd phone line and only answer the business line if it suits you - only have an extention in the office and close the door when not working. I have 2 mobiles as well for the same reason plus if you rely on a computer run a notebook as well - no IT backup at home if it goes wrong and you have a deadline - I double up on everything 2 printers etc - costs are so low why risk it.

Home and work ( I work long nights - 15 hours and the internet is a godsend!) We are allowed to 'surf' but there are rules about buying things, especially off Ebay!

Never at work. We have very restricted internet access, limited to sites we need to go to for work and any private internet use at all, for whatever reason, is forbidden. As it's a real pain to get the access set up even for sites that would be helpful for me to do my job I don't bother. It's no skin off my nose if it takes me all day to find out information that should only take 5 minutes. I go home at the same time and I'm paid the same money.
