Howdy folks,

Have you ever felt blank and low at work because you have nothing to do. Its worse when you are in your probation period, where you feel that guilt for sitting idle. Worst feeling ever, watching the clock ticking ..... Its even worse when you have a soar throat and didnt sleep well last night. Need a mind cleanse

Of course!

Who hasn't experienced this?

Find some good news or technical websites.
Give yourself a challenge, rather than relying on your employees.

Since you are in "probation", maybe learn some more about your industry and
impress them with your new found knowledge.

I cannot imagine being bored. Ever.

My reading stack is to the ceiling, and the areas of technology that I always feel I'm behind on keeps growing and growing. So much to learn!

How could anyone possibly be bored in this industry?

I don't understand the phrase "nothing to do" as it relates to work. I currently have enough work to keep me busy through the end of the year, but that doesn't stop them from piling on more...

There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors

I wonder if his boss knows he has nothing to do.
