Re: Playing WoW at work question....

The point they're trying to make to you is that if your company internet access is restricted then they have done so for a reason. That reason is likely only known to IT and the upper management but it could be something as serious as a compliance issue to keep confidential data secure. If that's the case then you're probably going to be out on your ass when the wrong person sees you with a laptop playing wow. If it's just to keep employee productivity up or control bandwidth usage then you have nothing to worry about because I assume you would only be doing this off the clock. The thing is you probably don't know why this policy is in place.

Have you even asked about whether personal devices are allowed? Just because your smart phone is allowed doesn't mean your laptop with a 3G card will be allowed. If you haven't done this then you're putting the safety of your job at risk. Forgive us for trying to point out where you could be risking losing your job. I thought that was the friendly thing to do but that seems to be escaping you. Since you seem to insist on this, yes that 3g card will work as you've been told numerous times in this thread.

cool. With that said, I see no reason why that aircard and connection couldn't work out okay for farming and low-key questing.

most of us where just projecting our work environment/situations onto yours... it was all with the best of intentions, even if the delivery was awkward.

With being one of the first line managers on the night shift there I can take my breaks in empty meeting rooms when everyone else is working....the beauty of being a team leader.

I do understand the warnings you guys have mentioned and its appreicated.

Immer - thanks for that, I just need more time to farm etc as I'm falling behind the guys in my guild.
