Does it look bad having a couch in your home office? It’s behind me so when I’m on camera/calls, you can see it about 5 feet behind me. Not one a bad looking one but a modern chaise style with a plant or something near it.

My background is my bed

like

Having an actual bed in the background is the one thing I’ve heard criticized a few times. I don’t care personally and I think it’s a d1ck move for someone making $500k+ to give someone making much less sh1t about how to organize their space but bed-haters are out there.

Also, I’ve read (and believe) having your workspace (which you may associate with stress/anxiety) in the place you try to sleep is not a good idea.

If you can, make your bedroom a place for sleep (and maybe reading/sex/morning coffee) and not work.

If you can’t do that, be aware there are people out there who think you should and try to keep the bed out of the frame.

Sounds like it could be a conversation starter! I always have people compliment me on my office because I have a giant piece of artwork and a chest with photos/flowers behind me.
Keeps it a bit interesting compared to the blank walls most have.

Confidence, my friend. You’ll get there…

I have my full bar cart/wine racks, back of couch, tv, dog bed all visible. I don’t have a dedicated office; my desk is in my living room and my webcam can see that whole space. People usually just ask to see my dog, compliment my wine collection, or mostly say nothing at all. It’s fine, it’s YOUR house.

Typing you from my couch in my home office ….

AWS-SAA question (newbie): I know AWS account is a root account & by default gives user access/permissions to all the AWS services.

So....when the IAM users are added, do they receive a notification with the url to access the environment? Do they need an aws account as well? Confused on difference
