For a long time now I've noticed that I was having a hard time sitting up straight at my computer for periods of time. This presented issues, since computer usage is my livelihood. Today I finally decided that the issue was monitor height, and decided to do something about it. Not exactly one to have proper tools for the job, my monitor raising consists of sitting the monitors on a shelf that's heightened off the desk by two stacks of books. What's currently on my monitor-raising best sellers list? On the left, from top to bottom: In Search of Schrodinger's Cat, by John Gribbin; 20th Century Ethical Theory, by Cahn and Haber; and Code Complete, by Steve McConnell. On the right side, The Lanahan Readings in the American Polity, by Serow Ladd; Chaos, by James Gleick; In Search of Africa, by Diawara; and White's Contemporary Moral Problems. My monitors will be enlightened.
