Hello everyone, I have been in IT now for over 21+ years, and over the years I have done a lot of gaming in the workspace. It started as just a employee and latter as management. What was done over the years as a piece of hardware (server) was retired if it was still working it would be used as a test bed to teach the younger IT members (Sys Admins, Network Techs, DBAs, and programmers/developers). We would load up a server based game on that server and open up the server to our internal network for all IT to play. The server was always set behind a firewall and isolated within the internal network. Sometimes we would open just that server up to the open internet to allow others to join us from outside the company as well. We would have the game server open and up for play from about 11:30 am till 1:30pm, and then again after 5pm till 7am. This Gaming server helped to teach many IT folks a lot different work based skills. It also made to create team spirt within the work place. I have done this a couple of times in every company I have worked over the years and has been a great success. As IT management I believe you should have fun and enjoy what you do, and little perks go a long way. Now the games I have always seem to have on these servers where: - Tribes: Starsiege - Tribes 2 - Tribes Aerial Assault - Tribes Vengeance - Tribes Ascend These were a few that I bought the Game Software for the games and loaded up for play. There were many others that were also played as well. I would often play every lunch time on teams with great enjoyment. Have anyone else had such experiences?
