If we used to chat on IM during the day and you have noticed that I haven't been on, the reason has been twofold. First, I had decided to curb my chatting and only get on once in awhile at work. I noticed the other day, however, that I couldn't even log on to Yahoo. No matter what setting I used, I couldn't log on. Well, our IT guy just stopped by and told me to remove Yahoo. It seems that the monitoring software picked up my connection and informed the office that I had an open IM connection. This must have been from a few weeks back. Fortunately the IT guy is a friend so it was no big deal. Evidently they are cracking down on all IM connections just like they cracked down on all streaming audio/video. *shrugs* At least I have my LJ for now. The way things are going it might be taken away eventually. I have read a few posts from friends where all non-work related Internet has been banned and even as extreme as ALL Internet being banned. I suppose if I worked for the BIA I would already know what that feels like. So maybe I'll chat at night. Maybe not.
