Constructive ways to spend copious amounts of free time at work

I have an excruciatingly boring job with lots and lots of internet connected downtime. Help me think of constructive things to do with my copious amounts of "free time".

I work in an office where I am essentially finished with my work by noon, but I don't get off of work until 5:30. During the rest of the day my only real responsibility is to answer the phone, which only rings 3-4 times most days. I sit in a very visible part of the office where I am expected "look busy" so just reading or drawing are out.
For a while this was great, but now I am starting to starting to feel bored and useless. I would love suggestions for some online resources that could help me pass the time in a more constructive way- i.e. studying for the GRE, learning web design, online community projects, anything really.
