The mystery was how he was able to stay at that job for so long :D
He's a fast typist?
When I worked at a printshop during one of Vancouver's occasional house buying frenzies some employees were buying and flipping houses over the phone - literally buying in the morning and selling at a profit in the afternoon - during office hours. I don't think management ever caught on (maybe they were doing it too) :)

We had an employee with a desk job who accidentally left all his stuff on the screen one day when he went to lunch. There was his online magazine he was working on, various job hunting sites, etc.
Dweeeb.

And then there is the other side of the coin -
the employee who wanders around peeking at monitors to see who is doing what and then letting everyone ELSE know what they saw.

I guess the time-waster is worse than the time-police.

If you count all the hours employees are taking part in forums like this during work, more than one company could use that number to account for its manpower... (or for minimum to equalize the educationary budget, if there is such a thing)!

In a printing shop today is mostly more difficult to waste time than to spare. If there are not enough customers to hold you busy all the day except with „waiting for the files“ and doing new planings for the job in print sequence, it must be allowed to do anything what keeps you in a good mood.
In fact the common salaries today does not allow to get send off home for the rest of the day. Nobody can live with a half cutted income...

I recall 15 years or so ago, you could build databases of prohibited sites in MS Proxy Server to stop “social notworking” as it was then called. That was of course before everyone carried a personal smart phone or tablet, so they no longer needed company IT inventory to waste company time...

Hmmm. Being the IT Manager does have perks.
I could put Facebook, Twitter, fill-in-the-blank-trending-social-media on the blocked list.
Anyone who screams is guilty. Columbo for the win! (Loved his 'One more thing . . . . ')

Maybe he was just skilled and well organized?
When I worked in printing house as DTP operator it took 3-4 hours top to get job done for 3 printing press machines. Rest of the day was laziness and relaxing.
