How much would your productivity increase if it were not possible to view RZ at work?

Be honest!

I'm pretty good at staying off during the mornings (today excepted) but mid to late afternoon is when I find myself more interested in RZ than work. Even without RZ I drift off in the late afternoon. Of course, I do my best work in the mornings till about 2-3pm. Then I fade with another burst of energy from 6ish till 8ish.

It also depends if there is a day game or big breaking news. Then forget it.

So I'd say on average, 5 to 10% increase.

No change.

I'd substitute RedsZone with another item while multitasking.

If I'm not doing at least 3 things at once, I'm not working.

I've actually got two monitors at work. One for RZ and one for work. I lucked out.

I spend maybe 10 minutes a week on the internet - usually either to look up phone numbers or the weather radar.

I can't remember the last time I've visited RedsZone while at work or even if I have visited ever at all. I do get periodic RZ updates from Creek though. :)

I think we're going to have to close this thread so people don't take stock in their time and realize our secret plan to shut down corporate America by distracting all it's employees.

If I had a job that gave me RZ access, Krono would probably be chasing me in post count

If posting on RedsZone was illegal, Krono would be on death row.

If RedsZone is wrong, I don't wanna be right.

My attorneys have advised me not to answer this question at this time.

I have never visited RedsZone at work. Period.

I am not here to talk about RedsZone.

He's lying, yo! Not only does Redsland access Redszone at work, he forces me to log into Redszone to converse with him, which makes me less productive

Wasn't me. You're thinking of Mike Sweeney.

I'm sure he meant Mark Sweeney, not me. Go ask him.

It will be a sad day when RedsZone meets the corporate firewall but until then ...

Redsland and Red Leader have won this thread. To the rest of you, thanks for your participation. There will be Gatorade and Weetabix available by the changing rooms.

It's possible to win a thread?! Sweet!

I'm going to start one about Adam Dun now! Or maybe Billy Beane!

Snitch.

I have to get up and walk across the room and log onto an unclass computer to check at work.

I happen to be at work right now.

I really only have time to check once or twice a day and only for about 5 minutes.

Man I hate it when work cuts into my Reds time. :evil:

I can't view RZ from work, but that I am still not very productive.

Ok so here's my honesty about this question.

About two years ago - I had a friday where I swear I spent nearly an entire morning from 7:30 till lunch on Redszone.

I think that's when the lightbulb went off. I used to be chronic visitor to both here and the Gallery during work day, but I noticed my work was slacking - and that's just not cool.

I rededicated myself to my work with regard to both net browsing and socializing at the office - and am still happy I made the decision. I've gotten a couple of promotions out of it (no joke) so the pocketbook welcomed the decision and I've felt light years better about it personally in the end.

So I'm on here significantly less than before poster - don't get me wrong I still poke in on my PDA if a meeting or telecon is extremely boring and I log on at lunchtime for a couple of minutes, but that's really it.

How do you include redszone in your multitasking when you are a golf pro?

For what you guys charge for a lesson, staying off redszone for the half hour is the least you could do :rolleyes:.

Got this email at work coming back from vacation today...:eek:


Just a reminder…

Road Runner called me on Friday to alert me that recently (over the last month or two) our internet usage has gone way up for things other that we would expect for purposes of our business. They read off to me the top ten sites that we are hitting and it wasn’t until 6 or 7 that we hit Monster and CareerBuilder. Some of the top sites included sites like Ebay and other shopping sites, online gaming sites, online video (movie and TV) and other sites unrelated to company business. The last time this came up, the president was irate. I am avoiding telling him, but often he will ask me for the RR report. My hope is that when he does, this problem has been corrected. Please do your part to curtail this. It’s bad for you and everyone else at the company because not only does it lower your productivity, but it jeopardizes those who might pop on to check something out on a rare occasion. Eventually, RR will end up blocking everything and that will be bad for everyone else. This goes for phone and email as well. I really appreciate your cooperation on this. Please make appropriate choices.

Since I drive for a living, I can honestly say I'm never on here while I'm working.
