Instant Messaging at work

When you are at work(or at home) and you see friends that are online who are at work do you IM them during the day or do you wait until later?

I have one friend who's a programmer. She's always online when she's at work. In the begining I felt uneasy about talking to her at work. But she has given me the go ahead. Somehow she's able to work on the big projects and still talk to me at the same time!

I used to have msn on my computer at the job before this, but I'd feel really weird about having it at this one.

At my last job the IT people allowed us to use it until it started to be abused. Then they took the service away.

So I just started e-mailing people.

I used IM so much at my last job, but at my new one they don't allow it.

I don't IM as much as I used to.

However, my new man and I are constantly sending each other emails.

I don't IM at work unless something is really wrong...like if I know one of my friends is upset, I'll look to see if he or she is online, and I'll try to chat with them in between work.

I do peek in here at work (obviously) and send e-mail, but if I was on IM at work, I'd have so many people IMing me that I'd never get anything done. The couple of times I've signed on from the office, I've always had to answer someone's IM with "Not now, I'm at work, catch up with you later"...which is why I tend to avoid it.

This leads to my next question. Why give your IM name out if it is the same one you use for work? I would separate IMs names.

I keep AIM on at work. I only IM someone if it's important right then, like IMing a friend to see if we can meet for lunch, or if I need to ask someone for a ride home, but not for having an actual conversation. I work with computers and spend half my day sitting at a computer helping people on the phone, so we're allowed to have AIM on as long as we're not chatting.

I don't have a seperate IM for work b/c I turn my home computer off at night (it overheats) and don't turn it back on until I'm home from work, or I take it to work with me. So I'm never logged on two places at once.

This place takes too much of my time to IM. Besides, who would want to talk to me?
