New desk arrangement

To try to enhance my metabolism when working long hours at my desk and to avoid sitting-still injuries, I decided to give the stand-up desk thing a try. Here's what it looks like right now:



Basically, I piled one desk on top of another, dropped both as low as they'll go, pushed a little table in front of the whole thing, and piled a laptop writing desk and mobile writing desk on top of that for my keyboard and mouse. Still a little high, so rather than just an anti-fatigue mat below my feet, I added two more anti-fatigue mats and a rug on top of that. Good height now!

So far, I'm noticing that my lower back and knees aren't so happy with it, but I'll get used to it... I hope.

Anyone out there tried a stand-up desk? Tips, tricks to share?

And I had to share this awesome Space Kitty Rocket-Pack from artist Jeff de Boer:

He has tons of great retro-space art, among other neato-keen stuff!
