Banninated, I'd guess. If he lost his pass, he could just farkback and get it in about five seconds. I wonder which TF'er he is/was...

Looks like a obvious attempt to get traffic to your website at Farkers expense and due to a greenlight its going to work. I see no productivity, but brillant...

I started TotalFark in July. I was on it all day at work. In August I got a promotion, but not mouch more work so I was able to continue my non-productive ways. I got another promotion a couple weeks ago.

The Moral:
Totalfark is good for your career.

/yes I am usually working really hard, but today it a very very slow day - a rarity, but it's nice because it means the rest of the week will also be slow.
 
2005-01-19 11:40:35 AM  
Cool so I am due for a promotion and day now!!!

/started TF in December

TotalFark is the only good thing about going into the office.

I doubt I'd ever go there otherwise.

I'm sorry. This sentance is just crazy talk.

I know this makes me sound really young, but can any of you older people tell me what you did all day at work before the internet??????

We worked. That's why everyone has to work 50 hour weeks now. Companies have to make up the lost productivity.
 
2005-01-19 03:01:39 PM  
Hell, I've had to give up my TF subscription and have never been more productive.

However, I am a helluva lot more bored.....
 
2005-01-19 03:02:29 PM  
I admit that I have Farkers' Guilt about how much time I spend on Fark instead of working.

We drank our lunches and sexual harrassment was allowed.
Heck, it was encouraged!

Before the internets, we fantasized about 1980's supermodels, read BYTE magazine, played with our Commodore 64's, and fapped.

I remember work before there were computers!
We FAXED each other really crappy low resolution "jokes" and picures.
By the time they go back to you they had been faxed/copied about 1000 times and looked like cave drawings.
Anybody remember that?
 
2005-01-19 03:12:52 PM

(I cut out a couple thousand question marks. The first one did its purpose!)

I would assume jokes were passed on via mouth to mouth.

Oh, and work was done.

But those were ancient times, and typically "work" was polishing the stone, then slowly chiseling out a report.

footballbat: ...AND we smoked in our offices!!

I remember that. In fact, in 1986 we just got a quarter million doller mini-computer in and I tried to get the administrators to ban smoking on the floor except for the foyer area by the elevators.

I was laughed at and ridiculed. How dare I suggest people could not smoke in their own offices.

1986... less than 20 years ago.

Looking through the PayPal FAQ it certaintly appears as though PayPal is available to kiwis. When is the last time you tried to use it?

I know I had to cancel mine because of time constraints. Totalfark is to the internet what heroin is to opiates. Three hours a night average and off and on all day at work. In fact, I shouldn't be working right now.
 
2005-01-19 03:44:49 PM  
err... should be working that is.

ok. lemme guess. a columnist. a totalfark account. farkers who
say: "wow. a columnist spends time on fark.com. i wonder who it could be. maybe a columnist from a important magazine? lets click and find out." you click the link. you see the address in your address bar. you use firefox. because you cruise fark in the caddy of web browsers. oh wait, the columnist, you remember. oh.

/who cares.

for some reason, i can only login to TotalFark once a day at work. i have a mighty slow computer here and if i try and refresh the page or load it a second time, the computer simply freezes. and that one time i can load it usually takes between 5 and 7 minutes to load. its quite agravating sometimes, but definitely conducive to productivity.
 
2005-01-19 04:30:18 PM  
remember, in the pre-Internets days, people often had to use things like typewriters to write things, telephones to communicate with each other, and the mail to send things. Therefore, it was expected to take longer to accomplish anything. Now it takes just as long, but 75% of that time is actually spent on Fark.
