Well, I'm here in a stupid little cubicle, in a corner away from windows (real windows), in front of some really ugly Windows..... (NT). Luckily my Perl coding is in SunOS :-)
I did have the absolute pleasure of working from home the week after my son was born. Work can be pleasurable when you have you 4 day old son sleeping in on your lap while you code away the time....
