Working from home

2006-06-27-Home Office
I’m working from home today for a couple of reasons (one of them being time-related). I’m writing web stuff for the medicine students as fast as I can, and I can do that easily from my study. Unfortunately the room is still looking really bland. We’ve had problems with the finish on the walls of this new house, with no-one able to solve them. There are arguments as to whether the problem is paint or plaster related, but until they’re solved we can’t paint the colours we want or put the carpets down. Usually my study walls are covered by 9″ x 6″ prints of some of my favourite photos that I have taken, but because they have to keep coming down when the house gets repainted (I’ve lost count of how many times they’ve done that) I’m reticent about putting more than a handful up. I’ve got 4 computers in the room, 2 being used today. When the room is complete I should have a longer desk with more space for a larger monitor for photo and video work, and the speakers for my gaming rig will be properly placed.
Other than that it’s a nice room, with lots of cupboard space for all my crap and on the same floor as the living room. My music collection gets streamed over my wifi network to the PC when I’m working, and I’m about as connected as I can be to the rest of the world and to my family all in one place.
