well, in our office working environment, there are times that we don't have that kind of very heavy workload, sometimes normal loads and often no work...when there is really nothing to do, what i usually do is pretend that i am doing something... until such a time that i get bored doing it over and over again, it is just i am fooling my boss, my colleagues and myself of course... what i am doing now is browse e-mail messages and read them (though i have already read some of them)..non-related work messages of course...another is looking at the pictures stored at our picture server, and another one is zooming in and out any kind in my desktop... and most of the time what i do is leave my working table and go to our documentation group working area or somewhere else within our department premises...how about you?

I have the same situation also, I often have no work in the office. From the morning until the end of the day, I always get myself stuck in the computer doing nothing. I like it at first, I don't have any task to do yet I am paid but eventually I get bored, thanks to mylot I get myself busy now.

sometimes i like that we have no work at office, but it is really getting bored after a long while, only waiting until 5pm office work...

I usually use my computer when there is nothing to do in the house. And if the computer is hot or if i used it for several hours i usually watch television instead and watch movies together with my families.. If i got bored from doing this things i go out to town and buy some stuffs in the mall... hehehe. somethimes if i don't have money i just clean my room. =) that it..

Well, I like it when you're at work but you're not really working..if you know what I mean. ^^ Because you still earn without doing anything and it's not really your fault =p But sometimes when there's really no work, I go and talk to my colleagues or do whatever in the computer. As much as I love it, it gets boring when you're not doing anything for even an hour..

I'm a Facbook and Twitter fanatic! So when I'm bored, I chat with my friends on those sites. I also participate in paid surveys during my spare time.
