I have this crazy idea - could you make a version of the forums page that is surrounded some sort of benign edge. Something like the edges of a word document. Get rid of all the branding and menu items so it is diguised when open on your desktop. You could then have a single 'back to normal' button which brings up the normal chockstone display. This would be perfect for us users that are supposed to be doing real work on our computers. Does this make sense?

Not sure exactly what you mean. Is it anything like the page you get when using the "Print" button found at the very bottom of a thread?

sort of like the print option - but it still needs to be active so i can post/refresh ect... The aim would be to create a version of chockstone which doesn't look like you are bludging on the internet!

Strip off things like color, icons, and textures.

Years ago I had a game (tetris rip off from memory) that had a hide boss button, you hit the space bar and it threw up a dummy spreadsheet so that way anyone that walked in you could quickly cover the screen with bogus page...I now work for myself from home...but stil need something because if my 5yo daughter sees me surfing climbing sites she decided Im not working and wants the computer:)

As a boss let me say that nothing is more obvious than the person who switches the active window anytime I come into view.

but as long as they're looking up chockstone, you'd be cool about it yeah? you'd even pull up a chair to read the latest garble HEX has dragged back out from the 80's to show us all how sleeping around, eating dirt, falling 12 meters onto a number 2 RP and calling it a then modern day classic is all the rage, and that gym bunnies clipping bolts is just arts and crafts, wouldn't you? i know i would!

There is an idea, invite your boss climbing then maybe he will let the octional climbing site slip!

I tried it with my current boss. He was to proud to say no, so he said yes but every time i invite him he has somthing else to do, suits me fine because if i chuck a sicky to go climbing he doesnt complain much cause he knows i will invite him again and he's a whimp!

Nothing like having a bit of a hold over your boss! Trust me I have been a cranky mean boss!

ahaha i can imagine so!!

so neil has this come up because you either got caught posting when you were suppposed to be working or you want to make sure you don't get caught!! I think to make it happen the actual website/page would hav to look like a word doc rather than hav the word doc be the site. it might be possible to do wat ur asking i don't know

chockstone sits open on my laptop - which is plainly viewable next to me work computers keyboard. My work screens are three 21inch computer monitors - which the clients are focused on most of the time.

wow ok that's a lot of monitor, couldn't u keep chockstone angled down and then open it when clients aren't around? or are they always around!!! im supposed to be working now at school but i take the corner computer so the teacher can't see my screen unless he walks round the table at which point i can close before he sees it!!!

Not that easy in an office, at school the teacher expects you to sit in the corner and act like you don't want to be involved, bit harder in an office cause you don't get detention and a note sent home to Mum and Dad (although that still happens to me sometimes) you just get the sack (or worse your workmates start calling you a loner who is more interested in a weird sport like rock climbing..............oops I just wandered off there and started talking about things you should only discuss with your psychiatrist.

I need to go climbing, the office is driving me crazy.
