    Since I own my own company I don't worry about that.

    Otherwise I would kill the IT guy, and bury his body under the Accounts Payable invoices.  Chair

          There's no option for "be an adult and only try to access LP on your own time rather than your employer's?"

              The IT guy was practically dead anyways, I simply did him a favor, and helped him along a little.  Wink

                      For clarification, Bribing the IT Department with "hot picks" refers to numbers - lol!

                        Could you survive doing it on your own time or would you feel cheated if you weren't being paid while doing it?

                        Before I retired I worked with a guy who spent a good part of his work day dreaming up business schemes and drawing up different inventions.  A couple of his business schemes he tried running from work and he actually spent a small fortune with a company doing patents searches and contacting companies to invest in his inventions.  I thought once he retired he would go at it full time.  I saw his wife the other day and asked what he was doing and she said he was just setting home playing with the grand kids.  He apparently lost all interests in those business schemes and inventions once he was on his own time.

                            This wouldn't apply to me as I own a consulting firm.

                            I do believe in an honest day's work for an honest day's pay.
