    those have to be some pretty special cases, no? you had to sign a contract allowing them this beforehand, yes?

    luckily for me ;) i am the one who would be doing the monitoring ... we've had a few situations where we had to monitor email for a few days, but all in all it's not a problem. there are only 7-8 employees on my network at a time though. I can access anyone remotely, however it's only ever used for maintenance.

    I am right now. Not for long though, code doesn't write itself.

    It was edited out ... twice. lol

    I thought fapping was an inate ability all males posessed?

    Depends on the situation. If you are using your smartphone or laptop on company WiFI, then they can track anything they want. There are other cases also depending on if you use your personal device to store company information.

    No, they are not required to even inform you let alone have you sign something.

    As the IT Manager (actually the entire IT department) I am required to keep up to date on the latest hardware and software so I can make informed decisions and present technical information if there is the need.
    So ... reading TPU is basically a work requirement the way I see it. :D

    The name of the software is irrelevant and the OP is banned because they are trying to advertise said software. Interesting topic though, so we left it open to discuss.

    As much as I expect my computer to be tracked, using the camera is going too far. I've got tape on mine too (though for a slightly different reason; I had a web meeting where one attendant accidentally joined video chat instead of voice while he was working from home. And in this case, working = riding a stationary bike in his tighty whities)

    Holy crap. You just gave me logic to protest if I ever get b*tched at. Which I won't (i'm the one doing the monitoring) but if the corp big dog comes down and i'm on TPU I have a response. Although they rather me be on EE. :laugh:

    I really don't understand why OP was banned. Seems a bit unfair

    He was a chinese spammer trying to promote his product(link was promptly deleted by mod)

    His topic( or smokescreen for promoting own software) was so clever, the mods decided to leave the discussion open

    I was asked about being on a forum once (yes it was TPU).
    I said, "I get more accurate answers there than I would get paying for it from the vendors, and faster ... and like me, most of the people there have forgetten more than you will ever know."

    I was never bothered again. ;)

    When I was working with CEX the internet got monitored all the time.

    So of course I would constantly load up pages full of offensive material so the IT folks to enjoy.

    Technically they couldn't do anything as when they called up to tell me off I would tell them I was on break and watching scat porn helps me relax.

    They stopped calling me after that one though :[

    No kidding. Forums are my #1 choice for tech related questions (well Google always takes me to one or another). White papers from vendors are drawn out and have a sales pitch ring to them...hate 'em (I get enough grief from calling Symantec).
