What tactics do you use to hide that you are reading and posting on the forums while at work?

I have two screens, so I use the screen passers by cannot see because of how it's angled. Alt-Tab also comes in handy.

    i dont. i usually have someone stroll into my area and be like: whatcha readin?
    and i usually reply with: im correcting someones invalid opinion on the interwebs via google machine.

    no one really cares what happens at my work as long as everyone shite gets done.

    Edit: Some days i even log into eso/diablo3/starcraft2 and play some!

    Private office, nobody has any idea what I'm doing at any time. As long as my work gets done (and it does), I don't think anybody really cares.

    My boss is more than 800 miles away. I also have an office with a door I can close. And, I surf on a personal laptop connected with a cable modem so the corporate network never sees what I am doing.

    Ah yes, @mommadani907 ... the balance between do-nothing and superwork. I do the same. Some days I complete my work and everyone else's, eat lunch at my desk, and never stop moving until 5pm. Other days I trudge into work and think, I don't want to be here today so I ain't doin' ***.

    I can't go on forums during work. One time I tried to use my laptop to do homework, and I got yelled at.

    Not my fault that I get my work done early, and get paid by the hour, so I sit around for anywhere from 1 to 2 hours until shift is over.

    It used to be worse; they cut my hours when they found out that I'm productive, so I get paid less for the same amount and quality of work.

    One of the reasons why hourly wage sucks for a job with limited work.

    I have a job where i sit around waiting for someone to need something. If I dont look busy doing stuff like this (using the computer) then they will realize they pay me to do nothing and they might cut services. So you see I need to be caught doing this...I dont know how many times I have been watching youtube videos or on the forum and someone comes by and is like "hey when you arent busy can you...?" Next step is to bring my gaming laptop in with a ps4 controller and start using remote play. ahahaha

    Forums (internet in general) take a back seat to my work, so it's accepted by my manager that I read sometimes to kill time.

    our network at my work blocks gaming servers (eso/diablo etc) so i bring my macbook/ps4 controller to work and remote to play occasionally, works fine for me!
