I don't have time to get bored at work, as I'm (as Amadeus stated) usually working :). Now if I get some sort of block then I visit places like <dream.in.code> :)

I'm normally all stressed out and working hard, but in the little time I do have I work on back burner projects (such as the new company website) and I surf around the DIC and read news articles or I'm manifesting a new post in the blog...

No blocking, if there was any blocking done at my work I would be the one implementing it. I do what I want.

I need to do more work on my blog, I spend so much time here in DIC and writing code that I don't post all that regular, but I need to.

The only blocking we have at work (so far) is any site that offers any kind of streaming audio/video

Same here. In fact I did block the BBC News website for a laugh as I knew my boss spends his days reading that. Sure enough a short while later he came in and rather sheepishly asked why his machine couldn't get BBC news. It's a shame our router doesn't let you personalise the block message :D

I just quit my job in retail (grocery, actually) because I'm moving to go to school, but when I was there boredom was a regular practice. So I'd go outside and watch customers be dumbasses. I almost got ran over once, and that kinda livened things up.

I have a browser window open with Dream.in.code while I am either working on WeaponSoul or working on some assignments, so I don't get bored in the first place as I switch back and forth between this and whatever it is I am working on. It's the reason why I am usually found in the caffeine lounge. I also upload some of my work in the form of snippets if I think it stands out enough for others to consider it useful/interesting.
