Depends.

What's your workload, deadlines, and what permissions
do you have to engage in such activity.

For example, right now I do have some downtime (uuum,
clearly these past couple of weeks) because promised
projects are not being delivered on-time. What this
means for me is some serious unpaid overtime (just
like the last few projects). Does that help?

Usually companies have written rules about use of
company property. Buying stuff online is okay here.
But, some things are not. For example, when I wanted
to receive a fax about a Christmas present for my
wife, my employer told me no. So, I had it sent to my
house instead using my own standalone fax. I found
that out by asking. Usually, you can iron these things
out up-front.

Cheers,

Sean
