The Virginia Department of Transportation has disciplined 86 workers for Internet misuse, including the dismissal of 15 men who used state computers to access pornography. <br><br>The VDOT employees included workers and managers, state Transportation Commissioner Philip A. Shucet told the Richmond Times-Dispatch. <br><br>While the Virginia State Police participated in the investigation, the Transportation Department does not expect any criminal prosecutions springing from the computer-use probe. <br><br>&quot;The feedback we got from the state police and the attorney general's office was that it was more appropriate to handle it administratively because there did not appear to be any criminal activity,&quot; Shucet said. <br><br>Along with the 15 who were fired, two resigned for using their taxpayer-supplied computer access to look at pornography Web sites. Sixty-one employees have been suspended without pay for two weeks for spending two hours or more in a day looking at Web sites that were not related to their work. <br><br>Eight contract workers also were fired for excessive Internet use. <br><br>Big Brother is watching............ :'( :-[<br>

Yep, you got that right.

Glad I have my own business, my computer, my internet connection, and I pay the bills ;D Don't have big brother looking over my shoulder........Kinda lucky in that respect.

We have big brother watching us at work but as long as we stay off the sites we shouldn't be at then they don't say much.<br><br>My work computer stays on DTR, I don't think they would say much with me on this site.

Let's see. I'm supposed to be at school right now. But instead, I'm at home &quot;sick&quot;. I think I may call in sick to work today also. Haven't had a vacation in a while so i figure I'm do for one. This is the first day of school I've skipped on purpose and I could get used to it. ;D

I have to work tonight, but my job is pretty good about surfing as long as you get your work done. Anything in excess is a bad thing IMO.

Holds his breath and tosses Huey the bottle of tums industrial strength.

Ok, Ok. I'll fix it :'(...................back in a minute ::)

10-04-2002, 12:34 PM
Better put a sign on the door and light a book of matches afterwards. ;D

Being the Network Admin gives me the ability to surf where I want, and to control where others surf. If anyone else spent this long on a site, I would shut down access. [laugh]

10-04-2002, 12:38 PM
Was that kerbluuuueee I just heard Huey lighting the book of matches?

10-04-2002, 12:40 PM
I think I hurt myself [eyecrazy]

10-04-2002, 12:49 PM
Please don't tell us where you hurt yourself. That falls in the TMI category.

Reminds me of a home video of some idiots that broke into a house. They taped themselves of all things ( rocket science). And the department used it as evidence. One of them done something like the book of matches thing. Cant get into it much on the site. Needless to say it backfired big time. You never saw so much hoppin and squawlin in your life. I broke up everytime I saw it. [laugh] [laugh]
