This is true, but it really depends on a lot of things.

Not automatic, but if they feel like it it's a good way to rid themselves of someone they want to fire.
It depends on if they bought the quality equipment or the discount stuff. If they've got top of the line intelligent switches and the appropriate software on their computers, they can log every keystroke, mouse click, and bit of data that you send over the network at all. Discount gear? No monitoring software? They wont see a damned thing.

But this is way off topic. All I did was as a question here.

It's super, duper ambient. Like even by their standards. I'm a fan of theirs, but it might be just a little too much for my tastes.
What kind of music is that? Sounds interesting.
