I always keep my mobile phone next to my PC, notably, next to a wireless mouse, making me think from time to time, why do I not use that mobile as a digital mouse or even better, why is it not an all-included, with just a display device and a keyboard in front of me, receiving the signal? Anyway, it is an old fashioned, cheap but solid mobile with buttons. The one I am having next, is also going to be such. I rather avoid the touchscreens. Why do I keep it close? Two things. To check or double-check the time, that is one, the other, validation SMS.

Headphones, music.

I tried quite a few times but never acquired the taste for beer or wine.
I'm sure it will happen someday, centuries of drinking the stuff can't be wrong.  ;) For now I still prefer Iced Tea and at the moment precisely this one. It's really good, cheers!  8) Appart from that, a good audio amp and an army of USB keys...

My journal!  I keep of record of what I do to fix this or tweak that, and a description of what happened (success or failure, anything unexpected, persistence, etc).  I refer to it when I've forgotten how to do something.  Access to these and other forums is a biggie, too!

LOL, surprised you don't put your coffee maker in "rolling" distance from your desk chair.
And, with all that coffee close to your computer stuff, good thing you make backups ;))

What a wonderful idea. Coffee Maker On a rolling cart.
No worries a spill proof cup works just fine.
Seems everything works better with the right cup of coffee.
Just had a JAVA update a short while back on Linux.
Thanks for the smile.  :) Seems that we need more of them
now days than ever.  :D  ;D  ;D  8)

I do agree :)
If a desktop computer I like a chair, and also with a nice cushion :) but either is not essential.
laptop chair or cushion its not needed can use it on the floor, car, garden, park, bed, wherever is suitable at the time.

Alcohol is a nasty drug illegal in forward thinking countries/nations it makes people so accident prone or causing accidents, violent, volatile, unfriendly and aggressive. It really should not be promoted in front of minors due to all of its health risks to the human body. I would hope there are laws in some countries to prevent this irresponsible behaviour.
