I'm #1 - Do I win a prize?

I received an email yesterday along with an attachment showing the internet usage through out the company. Apparently they started tracking internet usage because the network was bogging down at noon and they can't seem to determine the cause.

Unlike most people I don't spend my lunch hour surfing the internet. I usually go out for lunch and don't have much time to surf when I get back. I jump on for a couple minutes and buzz through a handful of sites looking for updates.

These stats were compiled over the last 2 weeks at work showing internet usage. That's me sitting at #1, far and away from any competition with over 100,000 hits. The closest guy next to me has a paltry 30,000.

I don't really use the internet that much but I have streaming radio going about 5 hours a day. Along with that I have the playlist which constantly refreshes itself (most likely where I piled most of my hits) that I leave minimized and only check for songs I don't recognize, for the entire day. I don't think I use up that much bandwidth and I close it down when I go out for lunch so I'm obviously not the problem.

Regardless I can probably expect to be dragged into the office where I'll have to explain that I have an obsessive compulsive disorder along with A.D.D. and that I have to keep checking my stats to see if anyone is visiting this site. I'm not on the internet for more that 15 seconds at a time but I have to check every 20 mins. They'll have to send me in for some shock therapy or take away my internet access. And then what am I supposed to do at work all day?
