Drupal users policy that keeps down the size of the user table

Put your desk in the middle of the room.

My workspace

If I had it to over again I would put my desk in the middle of the room. I use the large banquet tables for my computers. I have different computers to do different things. One for day to day work and others for backups, etc. Each one has an external hard drive for daily backups when it has finished doing what it does for that day. It seems like frequently I need to get to the back of a computer, so the closer they are to the wall the harder it is. I also have some rather large CRTs (cathode ray tube) and these I leave the back hanging over the edge of the table to free up space in front for keyboards, books and papers. I only have one flat screen since the CRTs work so well, I still use them even though they take up so much room. Tables in the middle of the room would make it so much easier to get to the back of the computers to plug, to unplug cables or just see where a cable goes. -> Read more
