I, like the author of this post and many others out there, work from home. We are currently house hunting and have made an office in a separate location from the main house -- be it in the basement, a space over the garage or entirely separate apartment -- a priority for the reasons you note.  As I sit now, in what many would consider main floor living space, the lines between work and life often blur.

@Zeeglen,

I've known people who would rather starve than work for someone else. They've given up well-paying corporate jobs to work for themselves because they have to be the boss.

Working for two web sites, I seem to have many bosses.

And you have a rotten boss!

Must disagree.  Being your own boss is the best anyone could hope for.

It's also  nice to have a salaried outside job where you put in some extra time every day, spend a few minutes of your lunch hour eating a small snack at your desk but occasionally taking time off for an extra-long lunch with your colleagues, and having the freedom for those doctor/dentist visits without having to account for the hours, or leaving work early to attend a music festival.  Having a boss that does NOT count minutes of working time is great.

But, the downside of working at home is that you never leave work.

And you have a rotten boss!

I remember those days

As a former employee of Cahners I remember those days, but only vaguely. I made it routine even then to go into the office on Sundays, to catch up on all the stuff that I had put off during the week. I've always thought that a four-day (ten hours a day) week would be fabulous, but that's only possible if you work 40 hours to begin with.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
