It's been about a year since I started standing at work, time for an update, mainly so I can show off the desktop I built a few months ago, which is working out quite nicely.
In this instalment: Rule 4, on keeping a notebook or journal.
I had planned on including Rules 5,6 and 7 as well (that is, all of the third bit, out of 4 bits), but it is taking me more time to write up my thoughts about those other rules, and I want to get something out roughly every week.
A little while ago, I published my 4-bit rules of computing and I promised to blog about them. So here is my first instalment in a series to explain these simple rules, a bit about why I like these over others, and my own take on this wisdom (since it isn't mine).
In this instalment: Rules 0 to 3 (the first 2 bits).
About a six months ago I started standing at work. There's been a lot of talk on the Net about the benefits of standing desks, and how the sedentary lifestyle of white-collar workers is slowly killing us. I'm not going to weigh in on that debate, but I thought that my experiences might be helpful for others who are considering making a switch to standing, and whether or not to purchase one of those fancy (and expensive) sit/stand desks.
