GFW!

Postby Coppermine » Mon Apr 03, 2006 1:36 pm

GFW is what my friends and I call "Gamecast From Work." Whether you prefer GameCast, GameCenter or GameDay, it's all the same. It's when our productivity drops because we're staring at our screens, waiting for the refresh and the inevitable conclusion of each at bat.

How do you GFW?

i use the yahoo thing, and then email updates to my friends. some friends have email at work, but no internet, so i keep them up to date on the important goings on in the world. i dont usually log into mlb.tv unless my boss is gone.

the term we have for this is operation shutdown, or simply OS.

I pay for the streamed audio at work. Used to watch the mlb.tv but not anymore only at home due to new evil boss.
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Gameday Audio rocks. Best $14.99 you can spend IMO.

Also McNugent, that's a classic link there on OS. Did you have that bookmarked or did you search the archives for it?

MLB.tv is the way to go. I have a seperate monitor set up at my desk that I can watch the game on and still look like I'm being productive.

Yeah, I use GameDay. How busy I am dictates how busy my trigger finger is on it though... Some days I just watch games all day, others I just check in periodically...

i googled it. i should bookmark it. i remembered reading it long ago, and operation shutdown has become an inside joke with me and my friends. my boss was out of the office yesterday so i went into operation shutdown and watched a few games on mlb.tv. i was going to start a website called operation shutdown that was about slacking off at work but someone already owns that name.
