My gig allows me to listen to music via my PC while I grade calls.  Does your gig allow you to listen to music?

Yup. My iPod and I are inseparable at work.

Listening to Live365 right now and have several cd's loaded onto my work laptop.

Working for a film department at a university even allows me to watch movie trailers without anyone raising an eyebrow.

I can, but I don't. I did get a shuffle for my birthday, so I may change that...

I don't listen to music when I'm on the floors seeing patients but when I get back to my office to type up notes me and my iPod are inseparable.

I'll stream in some tunes but I worry about annoying other co-workers who might be able to hear what I listen to in their cubes.

Yep - unfortunately we went to an "open space" working environment earlier this year, so I bought some Sennheiser HD 280s and keep the iPod going non-stop.

I'm a code monkey in my own office so yes.   I also walk around in socks, shorts and T-shirt.   I belch, scratch and fart all I need to.   I have to dress up to go home.

Back when I worked IT we had the admin guys set up our department with one of the defunct machines as an MP3 server.  'twas great - plug in your headphones, turn on WinAmp and code away.

I'm still known to slap on the headphones and crank music (now iTunes) while studying or coding.

We have 4 PCs (of varying ages) in my pharmacy, and the one in the back is almost always playing MP3s of some sort. It would be belching out Sirius instead (like it used to), but Sirius' new music program for the web and Win2K (yes, 2K) just doesn't work.

I can, but I get too easily distracted,  I don't need utter silence, but if I'm actually listening to the music, I'm not paying enough attention to the work... and what's the point of having music on if you aren't really listening to it?

Let me put it this way: I was listening to NIN's the Downward Spiral at work today.  "And I control you."

If blaring alarms telling me that wafers have come out of their deionized waterbath count as a genre of music, then yes.

I wish I were able to!  :evil:

Hell ya. The care and feeding of web servers doesn't require silence, and most people don't mind the music. I used to play em through a pair of cheepo USB speakers, but every time my cell phone would get a call it would set the lil' fuckers off to this high-pitched whine.

So, Me and the headphones around my neck, and a headset for the phone. smile

I listen to the new muvo at work now.  They really don't care.  I have like the quietest office known to man.  The only noise is people typing and the phone.

One of the main reasons I purchased my Nomad was to have my CD collection at work.  On the few days when I forget to bring it, it's unbearably quiet at my desk.  It's almost as if I get distracted by silence.

I drain my iPod every day listening to it at work (stupid original mini 6 hour battery lifetime!). Right now it's The Ides of March playing Symphony for Eleanor (Eleanor Rigby). Go go 70's instrumental rock!

All day long.  I have a midiland speaker 2.1 system on my desk that I use when my officemate's gone.  When he's in I have some sweet headphones (whose maker I can't think of to save my life) that I use.

I basically have music on all day long.  Only way to concentrate...

I can use an MP3 player, and often do.  We're not allowed to listen to streaming media over the internet, though...too much network traffic.
