if you're bored you can come do some of my work for me. ;)
When I need a break or am not busy I read slashdot.org, WebmasterWorld, internet.com, google news, theregister.co.uk, cpan.org. If you're a programmer you can usually find some modules or programs to better help you track, update, run your sites and servers.
I think I've read the entire W3C and WebasterWorld. No joke. The amount that I've learned at this job is leaps and bounds over what I couldn've learned at any educational institution. But only because I've had so many days with nothing to do that I'm forced to read everything I can get my eyes on. And I am twice the web developer because of it. Unfortunately it hasn't landed me a better job....yet.

Being swamped with work has it's ups and downs. I used to work at a company where one of my jobs was running a machine that inserted metal pins into PC boards.
We got so much work coming in at one point that we had to have all 3 pinning machines running 24 hours a day. It meant 12 hour shifts, but on the plus side, everyone in the company had a pay scale increase, and the pinners got a raise... that meant some pretty good overtime pay.
