It helps me stare at a computer for twelve hours...

So here I am, staring at a computer for twelve hours today. I'm squeezing in a ton of overtime to help me save up for a new car. But have you spent twelve straight hours in front of a computer?

The way I see it, there are only two things that can help me get through such a long stretch of torture, but they don't let me watch porn here at work so I'm left with one shoother, music.

That is why I am so glad to have found a new web site today Called Pandora. It's a free online radio site, and it's easy to use. You just type in a song or artist you like, and Pandora finds that and similar music and plays it for you. It's free of cost and commercials, and I didn't have to download any plug ins (which can be a problem as Sun doesn't let me download things either).

The only downside is that Pandora doesn't let you skip more than a few songs in an hour, or go back to a previous song, but it's still a very useful tool of entertainment if you have dropped your roommate's iPod into the tub in Cancun and thus have no MP3 player to keep your ears dancing throughout the work day.

If you go check it out you too can be caught singing Frank Sinatra songs out loud by a room full of your co-workers! Good times...

We're glad to hear you're enjoying listening to Pandora at work!

It's true, we're only able to allow listeners 6 skips per hour per station due to federal regulations.
But you can always change stations for a bit if you can't skip a song, but don't want to sit it out. :)
