Red face Busted!

Well it happened. The results from the NETSPY software came in at work. I made the top ten and you guessed it mercedesshop.com was the culprit. Thats what I get for checking the board compulsivly throughout the day for new posts. I never would have guessed that in a month I would generate 10MB of traffic over the network just looking at the board and posting occasionally over a months time Wouldn't have been busted but I am the only one with a classic mercedess in the office and they occasionally refer to me as that diesel FREAK (I don't know if it's the smell or what)

Guess I will be checking in a lot less often from work. Luckily I am high enough up that they fiqure a few jokes made at my expense in the management meetings will take care of the issue.

Luckily they dont realize that it is an addiction or I would be going to mandatory classes immediatly.

Stephen

Good thing I don't have that old office job I had 2 years ago, because I would have the same problem

It's a good thing they don't use NETSPY or other similar software where I work.

Go to work you slackers. :p

Wait till you're like me, retired with nothing else to do but harassing guys like you in your cubical's all day.

Forgot to mention I've also done an upgrade to my MB with the install of radar detector yesterday. I had a cop give me a warning for doing 40 in a 35 zone day before, so I installed my radar detector from my old VW TDI Beetle.

If the late 90's is old, what would that make an early 80's MB? :p

You need to do some social engineering with the netspy admins.

Or just get a cheap $9.95/month dialup account, set up ppp on your office computer, and call in from your office line. People would start to wonder why your phone never rang anymore, I suppose...
