20. Beware of Websense
I worked for 4 different bosses under 2 years at this one company and the last one turned out to be a majorly neanderthal freeper. Suddenly he calls me into his office to terminate me for "internet use" with no warning. It turns out they use a program called Websense that tracks what sites you visit. None of my other bosses cared, but this one did - he mentioned DU. If you log on from a corporate computer, their WWW server most likely has Websense installed. I think the only way around it is to set up a remote connection to your home PC and surf from there. Or a proxy server of some sort, I'm not too sure. Websense is diabolical.

Sorry you got fired though. That sucks.
