And working from home has been a great experience.

The standing desk I built using plans from this site has worked out really well.  I was afraid it wouldn’t be tall enough, but it has worked out perfectly.

I even listened to the first album I bought with my own money the other day.  It sounds as good as it did in 1981.

My thanks to Kyle Neier (b|t) and everyone else at Apparatus for bringing me on board.  And thanks to Jes Borland (b|t) and everyone else who has offered advice about working from home.
