Show us your desk!

What makes a great desk setup?

Is it 6 monitors? Is it 30 bobble-heads?

What are you working with - and how does it help you to do your best work?

What chair do you like?

What are your thoughts on desk-height? Is it just me, or does it seem like the desk companies and the chair companies have not come to an agreement....

Here's our current desk where we film our videos:

It's certainly way overkill for most people, but we're wearing a lot of hats.

I actually just rearranged my setup today, funny enough, so it’s not perfect and a little crowded still, but it’s got everything I need. I got a nice gaming chair since I knew I would be sitting in it for long periods of time. I know there are more affordable ones out there that are probably just as good, but I wanted to go with something that I felt would be sturdy and last longer!

What is the story with those gaming chairs? They seem to have a high back/head rest, but what makes them good for gaming?

5 days later... and not one desk besides mine? And the only comments - from my students? I'm afraid that there are no humans here...

When did devs _dev_elop the ability - to fight the urge to post a picture of their desk when prompted? Test complete.

I'm currently visiting my parents' house where my original desk setup is still located, so right now this is how it looks. The MacBook is currently acting as a standalone machine; only the desktop is wired to the monitor.
