Lt. Cheese Weasel: So, sit up straight and don't slouch, get up every hour, do a bit of walkies and then get your ass back to work.
syrynxx: I just started working at home from an upright treadmill desk specifically because of all these risks and problems.[i831.photobucket.com image 576x1024]I don't have the cable management all pretty yet.
Ashyukun: Lt. Cheese Weasel: So, sit up straight and don't slouch, get up every hour, do a bit of walkies and then get your ass back to work. FTFY
Molavian: That's why I work remotely from my recliner.
foo monkey: How's it working out for you?
mdeesnuts: I've had a standup desk for a year. Curious side effect is I don't usually sit anymore unless you're supposed to; eating, watching TV, etc. Can't sit in a waiting room, waiting for a table at a restaurant, I stand rather than sit at a bar. It's strange but I don't feel the need to sit unless I am actually tired.

Have you had any close calls with a face plant? I always imagined I would see something and forget to walk for a split second and WHAM!
ShawnDoc: I've tried a stand up desk, got it was horrible on my feet and strangely my hips. If I'm going to be on my feet for hours at a time, I want to be doing a fair amount of walking, which is surprisingly easier on my system that standing in place for long periods.
Pharmdawg: I stand up at work 10 to 14 hours a day, and my back, knees and feet pay dearly for it. I always get a kick out of articles like this.
syrynxx: that OK Go! video
Crass and Jaded Mother Farker: Is it just me, or does the example person in the article look like Whoopi Goldberg?Cause, if it does...That's racist!
