Have been feeling less than motivated at work recently, due to bonkers boss, impossible targets and the fact that I am working notice before starting a new job soon.

The temptation to sit on Mumsnet during working hours has the potential to get me into serious trouble.

Have recently discovered focalfilter which lets you block specific sites for specific amounts of time, e.g. 4 hours.

If only I had known about this when studying for my degree

Glad you're better Olivia

Focal filter and leech block - good tips.

Well, there's always the 'blank post' option for trouble...[runs away very, very quickly before HoneyDragon HotPink gets everyone in trouble again. grin

And another thing. I never understood why blank posts are forbidden. Why? What harm are they doing? Am wallowing in pity this evening!

Bluelightsandsirens Fri 22-Feb-13 23:38:57

I can't remember how to do the long blank posts <wails>

Blank posts makes Gin evaporate bed and that is why ^ don't like them.

Because people get a little carried away and then massive or repeated blank posts make things go glitchy and upset tech.

I like my answer better

but I have had wine so technically could be wrong

HotPinkWeaselWearingLederhosen Fri 22-Feb-13 23:43:29

Someone should find whoever kicked of all this blank posting nonsense and should have a word with them...

Bluelightsandsirens Fri 22-Feb-13 23:48:13

I'm sure Olivia MNHQ/tech will have a grip on it now, I mean it can't be that much of a big deal - I don't remember it ever causing massive ishoos.

If that is not the case maybe some wanted posters should be made?

See, I keep forgetting how to do the wretched things because Tech keep moving the goalposts, and, when I do a search, the 'how to' doesn't seem to be findable.

i agree, and am tempted to do the same

I hate spending time on AIBU when I should be working, makes me feel like shit and I end up having bun fights

this goes to alot of ppl that seem to be ALWAYS here, I am curious if they share my feeling of self loathing??? I guess not!!!
