TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
It's been a while since we did an ergonomics thread, and I just wanted to sing the praises of the AlphaBetter desk that I've been using for the past several months - cheap, sturdy, and comfortable. Also, it's very easy to replace the 36"x24" desktop, if you want something bigger. The "Pendulum Footrest Bar" is intended for antsy schoolchildren, but it's also a great way to keep my back and legs limber while standing.
My only caveat is that the top height is around 42", which might not work as a standing desk for taller Whirlers.
