    Get caught all the time. Manage to hide MSN Messenger though, which is handy.

    One of the guys I work with found this little piece of software that allows him to hide all the non-work windows. I can't remember what it's called - I'll ask him tomorrow. I don't use it because I only go on tMP at lunchtime or at home - my screen is clearly visible by many other people so I can't skive too much :rolleyes:

    I don't work, and barely use the colleges' computers, so I'm ok! :)

    You can try and hide but as long as your admins have access to the proxy logs you can get caught. Just depends how bad a day they're having or how draconian the management want to be. Course if you're an admin you can always bypass the proxy.

    Have been busted a few times , but kuckily my immediate line manager (What they call a "Modern Matron" to keep Daily Mail readers happy) played Trombone for a cornish band some years back when they were in 1st or Championship section (can't remember which) and so he is happy for me to be on site - then grills me for names that he can remember from his playing days !

    Has anyone actually had tmp blocked at work? Luckily I was mates with the IT guys so I was ok, but there must be someone out there who has to endure their 9-5 without any banding...
