I had lasik about 3 years ago, and don't regret it a bit. The hardest part is just the maintenance of just having to put drops in your eyes multiple times a day. They can get really dry for the first 3-6 months.
It was about the 6-8 month mark for me before I was 100%. The halos and night blue vision took the longest to go away for me. The worst was stoplight's at night. It wasn't anything that I was worried about, and didn't make driving harder, just different.
I'd do it again in a heartbeat. 3 years later and I'm still 20/15 (but my eyes were also stable for several years before I had the surgery, which is probably the biggest factor).
As for fatigue, I did manage to have some when I was working 12+ hours a day in front of the computer, but it took several weeks for it to actual become eye dryness fatigue. Then again, I think under those circumstances anyone would have fatigue haha.
Considering every app has a menubar app now, I use bartender to keep everything from exploding across the entire menu.
Nope! Not at all. It only took about 5 minutes to put the top on after the base was put together. I just made sure to measure out everything and then it was just a matter of screwing the base to it (it has about a dozen places to do so). It actually only took about 30 minutes to put together, by myself.
I was actually looking at this top originally, but it was sold out and I didn't want to wait two more weeks for it to be in stock again. But just about any top would work (as long as it is thick enough to put a screw in).
I just measured my tabletop, and it's 63x31.5, so it's a bit larger than most. The desk also adjusts to 47", which was crucial for me, since I'm 6'3".
Here is another option (non-adjustable), that I was looking into putting together. It is a bit cheaper, but is non-adjustable.
All in all it was about $550, but considering most adjustable desks were much smaller in length and also much uglier (for a few hundred dollars more), it's really not a bad price. The base in practically indestructible, and could easily last a lifetime. Plus, you could change your top ever few years if you get bored!
I wonder if there should be a general favorites/pinned category that could be it's own section? I'm thinking of articles along the lines of these:
Something that may get lost in search, or wouldn't even be seen to people new to the site.
I second this! I'd love to help out.
Ahh, I should have read a bit more.
I would almost guess that it would be similar to Ghost, where you can use their hosting or take it on your own somewhere else.
I've been apart of the Spencer H. crew since '89!
