Girion47: All I know is that I've used 2 hours of overhead the whole time I've been with them and every other hour has been billable, yet I should feel bad for some reason that we aren't making money....

I think I see your problem, and I will explain how you can help fix things for your company.
You say you've used 2 hours of overhead, but you don't say how much that costs. What it costs is what's important. Now, what happens is, every year your company's accountants look at their costs, and they look at their direct labor, and their materials, and so on, and they put all these costs into buckets. Indirect labor is one of these buckets. Then, they attribute hours to the indirect labor, and come up with an hourly cost. So, the more hours they assign, the less each hour costs. You, you lazy fark, are only contributing 2 hours to indirect labor, and that makes your company's hourly cost of indirect labor look too high compared with other companies in your industry.
What you need to do is, when you track your time, is you need to say, "I worked 20 hours this week on projects, and I spent 20 hours looking at porn." Or better yet, 30 hours looking at porn, so your boss thinks you are a go-getter and deserve a raise. By this time next year, your accountants will be much happier about how their numbers stack up against the industry.
