I finally got around to having an office extension built onto my house over
the garage after working in a small box room for nearly seven years...

I now have plenty of space for all the PCs and the Mac and all the
peripherals and the extension is wired for a 'proper' network.

The design means that light comes from both ends of the office so it's
really good (unless it's dull and grey like it is today).

Provided by the PC in my case!

Agreed wholeheartedly: when you're spending up to 18 hours in one you know
it makes sense to buy carefully.

Mine's an ex-Government one and is massive - if a little, ahem, cranky - but
then it does support a big, heavy monitor.

You can take a peek at http://www.bagofspiders.co.uk/webcam/index.htm - I'm
the fat bloke blocking the view!

Working in a SOHO environment can be a solitary existence. Make it less so
by contributing to discussion lists when time permits or by using instant
messenger services like AOL's, ICQ or MSN Messenger (the latter being the
one I use, signed in as madas at bagofspiders.co.uk ) to have the craich with
contacts and friends worldwide.
