Any tech savvy people out there? I bought a second monitor earlier this year which connects to my laptop via the HDMI port. I was at my parents and they dug up an old monitor that doesn’t have an HDMI port, but it seems to have DVI and D-sub ports. Amazon has DVI/D-sub to HDMI adapters, but my issue is that my computer only has 1 HDMI input. What device do I need so I can use both monitors at the same time? I’m seeing HDMI splitters, but some sources say only one screen will work at a time
Any advice on a standing desk? I just got a new job that is giving me a stipend to buy wfh set up. Thinking of a investing in a nice standing desk (heard Jarvis is pretty good) but also read from the reviews that it is really heavy.. I move around a lot so this is not ideal. Does anyone know of any alternative that are easier to move around ? Also any advice on a good monitor is also appreciated.
Random question: I have a standing desk and frequently utilize it during the day. I feel more focused when I’m standing vs sitting. Would it be unusual for me to do the admissions interviews/video essays also standing up? It wouldn’t be overly obvious but they would likely be able to tell I wasn’t seated in a chair. Thanks
I am not not having the best time. I do not feel interested on my job and find hard to wake up in the morning and do it...or do anything else. It has been a rough year with the pandemic and all. Sometimes I think home office is affecting me too much or May be I am lazy. Or is this depression? Should I see a professional?

I started usimg a standing desk, and now my calf muscles, ankles and knees are really sore. This is bizarre because I have been running a lot over the past 4 months, and have been an avid hiker and backpacker.

Psychological / posture / breaking-in period / deeper issue that requires medical attention?

So finally got my standing desk set up. Got a birch butcher block from Homedepot,stained and gave it a few coats of poly. But its been a few weeks and the smell of the poly is strong when I'm near the desk. I can't stand it, does it eventually go away? Anyone have expertise on this? Tia!

Theres no amount of remote weeks between now and my service anniversary that will save me from LTT. What do I do now?
How often do you take breaks during the workday? I feel overwhelmed working for hours at a time with no mental rest, but get anxiety taking a break because I’m not working. WFH definitely started this for me.
How - literally how - do I ask people to respect home/ work boundaries without coming off difficult? I feel burnt out from zooms, the noise from Slack and then the f**king SMSs that arrive on my personal cellphone. It’s like being watched 24/7. At the beginning we had an idealistic ‘no meetings 1-2pm’ block in everyone’s calendar but it lasted about 2 weeks. Also I actually resent being contacted constantly on my personal phone when I don’t have a work one.
I’m confused on why people make WFH locations such a complicated topic like my company announced if we temporarily work from another state there might be tax implications etc.
Support one another thread! Now that WFH will prevail 5 weeks, some folks may be stressing out for any number of reasons. Hope this thread can be a judgment-free zone to DM one another for 1:1 sharing
