Those things on the right are my Zune, cell phone, and PSP, respectively. I've got my laptop on one of those proppy-uppy things from Targus, partially for comfort and partially for airflow.

It's an architect thing... they all write that way. I think it's some sort of standard or they have to take classes in school for it. I'm not complaining, it does look good and it's easy to read.

I should take one of those classes. My handwriting hasn't changed since I was about ten.

Nice clean setup though.

Forgive me if I'm mistakenly speaking for the whole forum but I sincerely believe that this is a thread about desks and nobody here actually gives a poo poo about your ricer lights and perhaps you should do something like lurk before posting

I wanted to say the same thing but I didn't want to sound like a dick

but yeah nobody gives a poo poo what your pc specs are or how many neon lights you've got in there

Edit: above me there, much love for the Cheddar Cheese flavored Maruchan instant noodle soup mix thing. Those kick rear end. They kinda make you wanna die after a couple months of living off them out of sheer poverty, though.

That sounds really good but I am afraid I would instantly gain 200 pounds when I took a bite

How do you guys live with nothing but a keyboard and mouse on the desk, and a bare white wall behind it? Is the rest of your house/apartment like that with absolutely nothing on it? I feel like you guys are robots.


^^^ I have that same amp!

It's actually a really nice, clean feeling to have only a few things out at any time, and everything else put away where you can get it when you need it.

The positioning.

It's slightly to the left.

Presumably it has to be attached to a monitor rather than floating in space between them

Or get two 28-32" tall file cabinets and go to Lowes/Home Depot and get an exterior door blank. Boom instant desk.

You should avoid Home Depot if at all possible because they discourage unionization among employees okay I'll go back to LF now

My mom had one for years and years, it was just a door resting on top of two half-height file cabinets. There may have been some simple velcro holding the door to the file cabinets, too.

It was enormous and heavy but it fit her needs perfectly and it was exactly what she wanted. Then when she wanted it gone, it was a door and 2 file cabinets

This is what I do in my office. It works really well.

Everybody at my office has an Aeron and within the first two weeks after somebody starts we have an ergonomics consultant come by, talk to them about the work they do (most of us are just coders spending the whole day typing in terminals) and where they have pain or discomfort. The consultant then orders any ergonomic hardware needed for the person; all costs are paid by the company with no questions asked.

It's really appreciated. I don't have that many problems but I know that having somebody looking out for me will meant that I can keep doing this job pain-free instead of getting carpal tunnel/RSI by the age of 30 and being completely worthless at my career.

My work desk is a door laying sideways across a pair of cabinets. It sucks

How are you guys handling your headphones cables? I got a hook to hang mine under my desk, but my dac (which sits on the desktop since it has the volume control) has the jack output at the front, so the cables run over the desk, and are starting to annoy me.
