in reply to I surf PM during

I voted other. Regardless of whether I'm at work or at home, if I have a Perl related issue or problem I surf. My boss understands that I consider Perlmonks a valuable resource. However, if I'm surfing simply for fun, I do that exclusively on my own time. I have to admit that I had to stop and consider the connotations associated with the word surf before voting. I took it to be synonymous with browse though some people equate surfing to goofing off or wasting time.

I surf PM during

    Well if "surf" is defined as "browse around aimlessly". Meaning, with no particular end goal, then my answer would be "off-time only". This is probably better defined with:
    Searching for an answer - mostly work hours
    Answering questions, recreational reading - off-time only

    Although, after lamenting for a bit, I took "surf" to encompass doing anything at all at perlmonks.org. I thus voted "no distinction".
    Possibly because there is no real distinction between work-hours and off-time for me these days. (sniffle... hire me!)
