Sadly, this does involve company assets. This involves company time.
Companies are usually fairly flexible about this, but it should still be
acknowledged. I am not a manager but I know how they think. From 8 - 5
or whenever, you're on company time. There was a discussion on another
list about this. People wanted to do creative writing -- hopefully on
their lunch hour -- and didn't know how to do this without involving
company assets. The consensus seemed to be to use a USB stick. Okay,
fine. Then a real live manager chimed in, saying that, if you do
anything but your job on company time, then -- technically speaking --
you are stealing from him, and that's called theft. I'm just saying.
