Was just thinking about posting about a standing desk I made and thought more generally that I should post a bit about how I work.
As I'd love for it to encourage a combined stream to see how others work as well.
I have been using Macs and Python for about 7 years now.
Specifically on the hardware front, I use a 15" Mac Book Pro running OS X 10.9.
It is usually docked to a 27" Cinema display but occasionally I disconnect and sit in my leather recliner or go to a coffee shop.
I use a logitech USB headset for Skype calls and Google Hangouts and headphones by Beats (over the ear) for music.
I recently switched to a standing desk because I have done more and more working out, my hips have gotten tight sitting all day, which has lead to some back issues.
I didn't want to spend a ton of money on a standing desk without at least trying it out so one afternoon I sketched up some specs, took some measurements and built two legs to put my existing desk on as well as a monitor raise to get my monitor at eye level.
