Your IT department is ruining your March Madness fun

Quickest way to being replaced or outsourced is trying to pull this shit in my company... You block March madness for the employees you can kiss your job and ass goodbye.

****ing IT Nerds.


http://lifeinc.today.msnbc.msn.com/_...ch-madness-fun

By Allison Linn
It happens in offices around the country, around this time of year.
There you are, squinting at your computer, pretending to be oh-so-immersed in that spreadsheet, but what youíre really doing is waiting for the boss to leave so you can get back to watching March Madness on the other screen.
But why wonít the game load?
Blame the ITdepartment.
A new survey finds that about two-thirds of ITdepartments take some sort of action to block, ban or throttle non-work streaming content, including the March Madness college basketball tournament.
When it comes to March Madness specifically, four in 10 admit they monitor employees who try to access March Madness on their computers, in order to protect the companyís network.
Thatís according to a survey of about 500 ITprofessionals conducted this February on behalf of Modis, an IT staffing firm that is part of Adecco.
Letís be fair to the IT folks. They arenít necessarily trying to keep you from keeping tabs on your bracket during the work day, but they are trying to keep your network running.
According to the Modis survey, four in 10 respondents said streaming content from the annual basketball tournament has had some impact on the companyís network, such as slowing or even shutting it down.
Most IT professionals surveyed said they block streaming content to make sure everyone can do their regular work without network disruptions. But the majority also said they do so to keep people from getting too distracted at work.
Itís not clear how much March Madness, which begins March 11, really distracts people from getting their work done.
Challenger, Gray and Christmas this year poked fun at its own assessment of how much game time takes away from company time, and even admitted no oneís likely going out of business because of a basketball tournament.
The outplacement firmís advice: As with most things, March Madness should be viewed in moderation. At least while youíre at work.

I wouldn't mind letting people listen to radio broadcasts, or following live scoring, but CBS shows actual games online I think. People shouldn't be watching actual games at work.

Has nothing to do with the IT nerds. It has to do with the people that run the company wanting you to do your ****ing job.

The IT folks' job is to keep the network running smoothly to ensure that people can get their work done. When lazy ****s are sitting around doing nothing, and using up gobs of bandwidth streaming shit that is against policy to access at work, then yes, we're gonna shut your ass down.

This is pretty much as straight forward as it gets:

If you wanna watch basketball instead of doing your job, then take a ****ing vacation day.

What if said company wants you to do your job at 3am on Saturday or 15 hours a day?

It's not as black and white as you think...

Your job is your job. They are paying you to work aren't they?

I think I read somewhere that tournament games won't be played at 3am this year.

Then you do your job at 3am on Saturday or 15 hours a day.... why would the time of day or length of shift make any difference?

If I'm a huge General Hospital fan, should I be allowed to watch it at work just because it's on at 1pm during my shift?

They pay me for results. What I do to get those results is my business. The ends justify the means.
