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.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
