I'm actually in the same boat, looking for a similar (though strictly office) chair now. Herman Miller makes some pretty unique stuff, I'm looking at an Aeron for the office but I've always liked the Eames Lounge set as something that stands out. When I went to test the Aeron, the lady also pointed me to the Knoll Generation chair also, it's got a back that is supposed to twist and bend with you.

Haha, I've seen the woes and I feel for you, but if this goes through I would be contracted through a colleague's firm, so staffing is not something that would initially be in my arena. I've got an engagement lined up though my fear is that I'll overlook something in the legalese and end up either screwed or out of work somehow, and that's the piece I'm trying to avoid. I've seen some folks commenting on consulting for various firms large and small and was hoping they...
Gents, I've been consulting for the last three years and have a potential opportunity to start consulting independently. Right now I'm looking at setting up an LLC with myself as the sole employee, and I am setting up some time with our tax attorney to take a look at some of the tax implications of going down this road. What I'm not sure about is how transitioning into this arena should play out or what sort of 'gotchas' there are to watch out for, and I thought...
Another for Grumpy. The Stumptown setup at the Ace Hotel is cool too, but not necessarily on the way from anywhere to anywhere else. This is an interesting story I heard a couple of years ago about Grumpy: The story goes that Howard Schultz, the founder of Starbucks, was walking past the Grumpy Café in Seattle, saw how busy it was, found out that the lines were due to Clover coffee - so he bought it. Why? As told to Wired Magazine, a strategist for the company says:...

Maybe he's taking his intellectual aptitude off the market... We should check the local diners
I split my time between project management and software development, but I think it really depends on what sort of coding you're going to be doing. I have an HP EliteBook running an i5 with the full complement of 64 bit software on Windows 7, and I can write and compile anything I need to. If I start running application servers from it (full enterprise level applications), things start to slow down, but for coding purposes you should be able to develop and compile...

The analog dial didn't move for 2 months, so I assumed that either the humidity was perfect (from the state of the cigars I didn't think this was the case) or it was broken... I bought a new digital hygrometer and humidifier, and the initial reading said...
