That I was not doing.

Building a website for a (really) non-profit and maintaining it, for example.

Others are just plain raw curiosity - like ODBC on Excel and Text files. Sure enough (actually, amazingly) the need to extract and manipulate Excel on its way to SQL occurred in less than two week. An import just didn't work for it.

I do agree that "freelancing" on company time, or billing A whilst working on B's project are unethical practices.   Stealing is an appropriate description.
