Default Do you game at work?

I'm not speaking of solitaire. I'm referring to running an actual game on your work PC.

I have a 40gb USB drive that plays WoW just fine without it having to be installed on the machine. I run it through a SOCKS proxy to my home machine so they can't tell I'm connecting to Blizzard. I also just added in a Radeon x550 128mb ($20) to the work machine so that it will run it better than the onboard and free up system RAM.

I know it's a shame, but what else to do when I'm bored?

Public poll BTW.

I did at my old PC repair job when we had no work or we were on break.

Good times.
