Worksafe time passers?

Postby Shyrtandros » Mon Jul 25, 2011 9:58 am

So.. monday is easily the most BORING day of the week we're only allowed to do 1 thing on mondays.. wait for the phone to ring because someone broke their equipment over the weekend.. and I have already exhausted my standard rituals..

I figured I'd ask if anyone has any websites that they mess around on to kill time (other than here of course!).

My Examples:

http://www.Notalwaysright.com - hilarious customer service oriented stories.

http://www.ODDEE.COM - Daily additions of different odd / funny things.. sometimes they're NSFW but they will label it before you open it.

http://news.yahoo.com/comics/- Yahoo comics are nice too..

Mainly for code monkeys, but some of the job interview or management stories are entertaining too.

Work safe is relative (it's a bunch of browser games that I can actually access on a government computer.)

And for the record... I have no idea what it actually says, but select a game type from the column on the left, then find a game that looks fun (or maybe not even fun, but will successfully waste whatever time you're trying to waste :D.)

Indeed. Still working on a couple of the challenges, but that's mostly a time thing.

I don't recall if I found it here or not, may be a repost.
