I recently (about 2 months ago) hired in a software development company as SysAdmin.
The main reason I got hired was to improve my skills in SysAdmin and DevOps stuff, I had my own dedicated server and was selling VMs and hosts to people, but I realize it's time to face bigger problems.
But they haven't given me any servers till now that I can work with or even keep maintenance of them which I understand as they're very sensitive so every work that I've done till now is research and giving advice to my bosses about how we can improve our security, speed, reliability, etc.
It's not like that I don't want to get to work early, I even installed an alarm app on my phone which starts ringing and doesn't have any snooze button and I should take off my bed and take a picture of my bathroom to stop it from ringing, it works for a few days, but recently I take a picture and tell myself why should I bother myself going to job I don't have any work to do and go back to sleep.
It's been two or three weeks that I've got really nothing to do at work and because of that I can't push myself to wake up in the mornings and get to work and Normally I'm late 3 or 4 hours. Nothing has said anything to me till now because of that and I don't get paid based on work hours.
Actually it's my second job aside from freelancing stuff and my own servers. The first one was pretty much worse, I was called "IT Manager" and the most useful thing I had to do was connecting wires to my coworkers PCs which they accidentally disconnects.
One year I was without a job and I woke up every day at 6 AM to get to my university library to get work done on my own servers and experience stuff on it, so I can tell I don't have medical issue.
Should I talk to my boss about getting my some useful jobs or continue researching on my own?
