Would you rather be swamped with work or have none at all?

Getting paid to surf the web but act like you're busy is not as fun as it sounds. I'd much rather be overloaded with work. At least I would be accomplishing something.

Any suggestions for websites to visit that would be somewhat work (website) related? I think I'm almost finished reading the whole internet.

I like to read the W3C coding guidelines. It can be dry sometimes, but is very informative. As a result my coding has become drastically better.

Read the whole WebmasterWorld Google forum, that should keep you busy for some time AND it's website related :).

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.
