And 3 hours of college for many people consists of Facebook.

And then beer afterward.

alt-tab to the rescue!

oh man I used to nearly miss getting in so much shit at work because I installed AOM on my workstation.

My boss would always ALWAYS march two floors down, right into my cubicle, to ask me something instead of phone, email, etc.

Luckily he had a loud voice which carried down the office corridor as he gave orders to people in cubicles along the way. Just barely time enough to alt-tab out and pull out the earphones. I lost a lot of games that way though

I did uninstall all the games and junk when I left, but he had the comp wiped anyway probably because it had some stray adware or orphaned AOM registry keys.

to be strictly honest, I never played during regular work hours. I always stayed late working (student flat, no roommates, nobody to do things with on weeknights). He was also known to work late and would meet with employees after closing to go over reports and slides. He would always pay me a visit at the end of the cubicles but it was long after the central office was closed. So if he saw a stray Anubite or hersir out of the corner of his eye, I don't think he held it against me.

Most importantly, I always had something done to show him whenever he asked, so it wasn't like I would tune in, turn on, drop out. The vast majority of my overtime was spent doing just that - working overtime on time-sensitive shit.

The department had problems with employees and volunteers spending more time on the computer than was necessary. It was causing slowdowns because people were neglecting patient services to spend time online. One guy tweeted about a patient who came in from outside, who happened to be a local celebrity. This led to a blanket policy that no volunteers or temp assistants were allowed to work in positions that gave them unsupervised time in front of a computer. It also resulted in almost all outside web traffic being blocked. In order to be assigned a workstation, you must be a full time employee or contractor with the hospital. And when you are on the computer, there's little besides work to do there. No Facebook, no AOE3H, no Youtube.

We do not have computerized medical records here. Most hospitals and clinics do not. Perhaps at the main university hospital campus they have electronic records.

It's a huge problem in the province, even if you happen to work in one of Punjab's prominent teaching hospitals.

The province has recently suspended work on the second major (or is it third? I forget) attempt to convert health records to a common computer format. These efforts begin with good intentions, but with a poor understanding of the needs of patients, doctors, allied health professionals, and hospitals. They were also way over budget, and plagued with waste and in some cases fraud.
Sounds just like the NHS' IT system, its still not finished and I can't remember when it started (2005 I think) and as of 2009 it looks set to miss the 2014-2015 deadline for completion, the latest idea is to give patients online access to their records among other things. I had a look at the latest White Paper " Equity and Excellence: Liberating the NHS" today, which seemed to be all about more patient choice etc. etc. etc.

Yeah I jettisoned the bulk of my rant, but in the past, some online access medical records systems actually worked very well, but were scrapped or taken down later on because of harsher laws about health record access.

For instance, in 1999 you could access your patients' laboratory results, digitized medical images and ECGs, and chart notes from home if you had a standard VPN login account for the university health network. In 2004, that system was shut down and it was back to the drawing board due to HIPAA. It was argued, a student or doctor could log in from home, leave the computer running while he made a sandwich, and his wife or a friend or an insurance adjuster who happened to be in the same room could read and lift the records from the computer before the automatic logout function hid them.

Meanwhile, it was back to paper charts and phone calls to track down elusive but crucial data. Chart not in the rack? Lab not coming to the phone? You couldn't even know if a patient was admitted or not, let alone what their health issue was.

Some third party companies are working on digitizing health records. They will collect a hefty fee for disbursing any health information, except in bulk (e.g. insurance companies). So it is not yet realistic for patients to request and obtain their health records, even if they are already computerized. If they want, they must request in writing with a waiver and $30-75 for processing and printing fee. The result is, of course, paper printouts of records, not electronic copies. This is probably OK for laboratory test numbers, but say you wanted to get a copy of MRI images from when you had back surgery? Fuggeddaboutit. Fax-quality crappy linty shit comes in the mail.

Dr. Kumar Shah sticks a USB drive into the orifice of your choice. Before you have time to protest, he has his diagnosis.

Some USB sticks are more likely to have viruses than others too. Depends on how many and which computers you've been sticking them in.

Started watching the latest season of mad men and realized there are posters throughout the offices that just say "HELVETICA" in helvetica font. I don't know if I can continue to watch.
