    Thanks for the write up! We just renovated the basement in our house and I have a small home office setup there. Been looking at options for standing desks and this looks like a strong canidate.

    In regard to an online timer, check out https://www.toggl.com/, it has the simplicity of a start/stop timer, but also has powerful reporting. For single users most options are free. Most of the subscription features revolve around teams. Note: I am not affilliated with toggl, I just think it is a cool tool to keep track of what you do on any given day.

    Awesome post Chris! SO well written, as usual !

    I too just started using a standing desk with dual monitors (and even, periodically, the tomato timer). I’m already loving the whole setup as well.

    BrianK – I’m going to checkout the site you recommend as I’d like to have more reporting on my work habits (for good or bad) 🙂

    Thanks and keep up the great work!
