How many of you NEVER play a game, visit ATS, or partake in other activities during your allotted work hours?
Actually, BH, playing a computer game, or visiting ATS on the company computer is considered "theft of services", and I know several organizations

I would warn ANYONE that contemplates using your company computer for ANYTHING other than company business, NOT to. The first warning you may get, is
a pink slip, and a notice to appear in court.
