We have a new problem, and I'm looking to find out what other folks have
done about it.
With Internet access, there are some people who have discovered binary
pictures (subject of pictures doesn't really apply here), and are down-
loading them at a rapid clip. Rapid enough to cause performance problems
here on the network. The initial reaction of management was:
How do we keep this ******* off the net?
I would prefer to tackle the broader issue of abuse of company resources
to the point where it hinders other peoples ability to get work done. I'm
trying to keep my personal opinions out of this, and would like to hear from
anyone who has successfully (or unsuccessfully) dealt with the problem of
personal use of the Internet on company time and computers.
I welcome all solutions, political, technological, managerial, hardware,
software whatever. What I'm trying to do here is offer as many options as
possible to management.
No flames about this please, I'm trying to solve a problem in a reasonable
manner and flames don't solve anything.
