We've just made a project release and we are just waiting for bugs...
The past 3 days I've done nothing and I think I am bored!!!

Good thing, the company does not block our internet connection so I get to surf all day!

How do other's deal with this ordeal?? lol

There's never a dearth of new things to be learned or reading material to be read. My reading list is piled to the ceiling.

I simply cannot imagine being bored at work.

Or training others or improving the unit tests or process or ...

I hadn't had a lack of things to do at work since my first week there!

I generally go home and sleep/rest after a big deadline. Depending on how long the crunch was, I may stay away for weeks.
