Select the Right Work Desk

by Patricia Schaefer

Will that desk you’re thinking of purchasing suit your workstyle and meet your job needs? Will its size fit well within the parameters and constraints of your office or work space? Can the desk surface withstand the daily-use demands of your particular job and work environment?
These are just a few of the things you need to consider when choosing a work desk. And that’s because the right desk can aide immeasurably in accomplishing work tasks in a comfortable, ergonomic and productive manner.

Identify Just How You Will Use Your Desk

Mostly computer work:

Select a desk or workstation specifically designed for computer use. If using a PC, be sure the desk offers space or a compartment to hold the CPU underneath. Look for built-in wiring holes or channels for electrical connections; this allows for a safe way to keep cords out of your way.

Paperwork-generating:

Choose a desk or workstation that will have the roomiest surface possible so you can accommodate those spreadsheets, bulky books, or piles of important papers. You may also want to consider a desk with shelving or overhead cabinet space.

Combination of computer work, paperwork, meetings:

For a home work desk:

Consider a computer armoire if you want to hide work clutter in your home. “L”-shaped desks are often a good solution and fit when your work desk needs to share space in another room like a bedroom or family room.

Tight on space:

Choose a compact computer desk or mobile computer cart.

Consider Your Workstyle Habits and Tools

Do you consider yourself the creative-genius-messy-work type? If so, you’ll need more desk/workstation space than the neat-and-frugal type. Neatniks may find a smaller desk sufficient for their work needs. The amount and size of tools needed within easy reach on your desk should also be a consideration when selecting a work desk.

Ergonomics and Space

Your desk should provide clearance for your legs; standard desk heights of 29 to 30 inches from the floor are sufficient for most users.
Sitting behind the desk, there should optimally be at least three-and-a half feet of space. A minimum of three feet of space should also be available in-between the desk and another piece of office furniture, and in front of the desk if you use a guest/client chair.
For computer-users, keyboards need to be placed at a comfortable height. Keyboards placed on traditional desks may be at too high a height and may result in significant discomfort or muscle strain for the user. Computer desks should either be equipped with a keyboard platform, or legs that can be adjusted. Be sure that any keyboard platform is large enough to hold a mouse.
Desktop equipment and materials should be within easy and comfortable reach, and should have sufficient space so as not to overload the desktop.
If the desk has a sharp edge, consider placing a wrist pad along the edge to help prevent unnecessary pressure and pinching on the inner surface of the wrists.

Desk Surface

Laminate: the most popular choice

A plastic finish that is applied to a wood core, laminate is affordable, durable, and withstands more than pure wood or veneer. It also comes in a wide array of colors and wood grain patterns. For a quality laminate that will better withstand daily use and abuse, look for a desk with a thick, high pressure laminate.

Metal or Steel: the most durable choice

Although not the most professional in appearance, metal or steel desks are reasonably priced and good for desks subject to long-term heavy use or for high- traffic areas. Better quality desks of this type can be assessed in part by checking and feeling the desks overall weight.

Wood or Veneer: the most elegant choice

Veneer is a thin surface layer of wood glued to a more inferior base. Wood and veneer desks generally look more attractive than other types of desk, but they are typically more expensive and considerably more delicate; they nick more easily and are not suited for rough or heavy use.

Quality and Durability

The quality of a desk is often most evident in the construction of the drawers.

Metal suspension rollers show a sturdy suspension. Drawers should open and close easily while bearing weight. Optimally, you want the drawers to slide out to their full length to allow full and easy utilization of space.

High quality wood drawers are assembled with an interlocking (dovetail) construction; this is stronger than drawers put together with just staples or glue. With a steel or metal desk, take a look at the drawers when they’re closed. If you see a gap where the drawer meets the desk, the desk is not set right.

Examine the corners and edges of a desk. You don’t want to see any fraying.
The desk warranty itself will give you a good idea of the quality, durability and life expectancy of a particular desk. Warranties typically range anywhere from a one-year limited to a lifetime warranty.

Give Your Back a Break

The Stand-up desk:

Thomas Jefferson invented it and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld swears by it.

As we’ve all been told, sitting for hours at a time can wreak havoc on a person’s back, especially for individuals with existing back problems. Consider giving your back a break by using a stand-up desk, where you quite literally “stand up” while working. Many users claim this work method also makes them feel more alert and productive on-the-job. Desk stools are also available to be used in conjunction with these desks.

Today’s desk is no longer the simple table with drawers of years gone by. Take advantage of the myriad of desk choices out there; many now available at relatively reasonable prices at office supply superstores. Give some thought to the considerations listed above when selecting your next work desk. It will serve as a valuable tool in establishing a comfortable, ergonomic and productive workspace.

Consider an “L”-shaped desk setup to allow for both work and meeting space. If finances or space allow, a “U”-shaped model will provide even more space and makes an impressive presentation for clients or guests.

for Microsoft

Office
2010
Beta is available for download today. Microsoft
has released an update
for Microsoft Word 2010 Beta 32-Bit
Edition and for Microsoft Word 2010 Beta 64-Bit Edition. This update
provides the latest fixes for Microsoft Word 2010 Beta 32-Bit Edition
and for Microsoft Word 2010 Beta 64-Bit Edition. Additionally, this
update contains stability and performance improvements. This update
also fixes a problem in Microsoft Outlook 2010 Beta in which the size
of an e-mail message is unexpectedly large. For example, if you send
yourself a blank e-mail message, the HTML source of the message
contains many entries under /*List Definitions */ even though there
are no lists in the message. The list definitions cause the message
size to increase unexpectedly. The update is available only for
Microsoft Office 2010 Beta Build 14.0.4536.1000 and not for the
latest released Office 2010 RC version.

Official Windows 7 Repository

Official Windows 7 Repository



Part 1 of 4: Download Windows 7

The fastest way to download Windows 7 is using BitTorrent, which is a P2P protocol for file sharing. Not only BitTorrent provides high speed of download for popular files, but it also gives you the opportunity to improve other people's download speed.



To download files using BitTorrent you need an application that supports the BitTorrent protocol (called a "BitTorrent client"). The best BitTorrent client is BitComet. But also feel free to use any other BitTorrent client.



Once you have a BitTorrent client, download the tiny ".torrent" file bellow that belong to the version that you want (32 bits or 64 bits). This file will be directly opened with your BitTorrent client and the download will start instantly. The magnet link is another method to start downloading a file with your BitTorrent client.

Those 2 ISOs above allow you to have Windows in any language that you want (35 languages available).
› Take a look at part 5-F bellow to select your language.

These ISOs also allow you to install any edition that you want (Ultimate, Professional, Home Premium, Home Basic, Starter).
› Take a look at part 5-G bellow to quickly unlock other editions.

Note: By default it will install the Ultimate edition.
Note: Multi-language is available only if you install the Ultimate edition.




Part 2 of 4: Check the authenticity

It is absolutely crucial that you check the authenticity of the ISO you just downloaded. You must check that it hasn't been modified by anyone, that it's clean from spywares and viruses, and that it is free from corruption or any transfer error.

To confirm the authenticity of the ISO you downloaded, all you have to do is to make sure that it is exactly (bit for bit) the same as the one Microsoft provides. We can know that two files are identical by matching their hashes. The hash of a file is the result of its calculation. Each file has a unique hash, if the file is modified (even only by 1 bit) then its hash will be completely different.

Microsoft provides through his website (http://blogs.technet.com/[...] and http://technet.microsoft.com/[...]) the official hashes for all the Windows 7 ISOs. Please check the hash of the ISO that you have downloaded using HashCheck ( direct download — instructions) or any other hash calculator, and verify that it is the same as the ones provided by Microsoft:
  • Microsoft Windows 7 32 Bits

    • MD5: D0B8B407E8A3D4B75EE9C10147266B89
    • SHA-1: 5395DC4B38F7BDB1E005FF414DEEDFDB16DBF610
  • Microsoft Windows 7 64 Bits

    • MD5: F43D22E4FB07BF617D573ACD8785C028
    • SHA-1: 326327CC2FF9F05379F5058C41BE6BC5E004BAA7



Part 3 of 4: Install Windows 7

You have 2 options to install Windows 7. You can simply burn the ISO to a DVD (Scroogle: How to burn an ISO to a DVD), or you caninstall Windows 7 from a USB flash drive instead of a DVD.

Insert the Windows 7 installation disk into your drive and restart your computer. Press any key when asked to launch the installation (Scroogle: How to boot from a DVD). You might need to change the boot priority in your BIOS in order to boot from your DVD drive or from your USB flash drive (Scroogle: Change boot priority order).

During the installation, you do not need to enter any product key, just bypass the step when it asks for one. You might also untick the "activate online" checkbox.



Part 4 of 4: Activate Windows 7

The safest method to activate Windows 7 is using a software called a "loader". It is safe because whatever happen this is only software so even if it doesn't work you will be able to uninstall it and continue to use your computer.

It is also the most reliable software method available today. This method has been working for Windows Vista for more than 3 years (and counting) and has proven its reliability and efficiency. This is a mature technology to activate Windows, it works with Windows 7 32 and 64 bits on any computer (homemade or branded) and even on Macintosh. Nothing special is required before using a loader.

You're invited to download and install the Windows 7 Loader created by Daz, which is currently the most popular loader. However if you want to try another one, there are other loaders (including open-source ones).
