Let’s talk office set ups. I am looking at a Uplift standing desk as my big splurge because I have back issues, and the room I work in has horrible lighting so I’m considering some sort of selfie light ring type thing that I can clip to my monitor.

What are your home office must haves? I lateraled to a new firm that is giving me a $500 stipend for home office equipment, furniture, supplies, etc. But I can't use the stipend for anything they have already provided me (keyboard, mouse, dock, monitor). I do plan on getting a printer. Any other ideas?

Screen sharing with an ultrawide / 4K monitor - what’s everyone’s experience like? In the past I tried to screen share with a 1440p monitor and people would complain my screen was too small so I have a secondary 1080p monitor that use exclusively for screen sharing. I’d love to move to either an ultrawide or just upgrade the 1080p monitor to a 4K one but am worried I’ll have the same issues it appearing small on the other persons end. Anyone have any suggestions?
