    Redszone and productivity

    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.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    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.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    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.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    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.

    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
