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.

    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 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!)
