Service rating : Friendly customer service but unable to offer a renewal deal that even came close to previous years' subscription costs
Product : Useful content and reviews that provide a helpful reference for future buying needs and interesting features from time to time. The format is however becoming a bit repetitive and stale.

Product : It's a great magazine but I would still like to see more Linux articles. Linux is so popular now and I feel coverage in your magazine should be better. It is the main reason I did not carry on with my subscription.

In good standing

Sometimes the simplest things can make all the difference to your working day. For Richard Easton, jacking his desk up a couple of feet and getting off his backside was the cure for a multitude of ills

The average office worker probably spends seven hours a day sitting at their desk, with an hour given for lunch. A lunch that is probably then taken back to their desk to be part-consumed and part spread all over their keyboard. After that they probably commute home, be it by car, bus or train, and pray to the transportation gods that they're granted a seat for yet more sitting.

That's an awful lot of time spent on our derrières for a species that used to be classed as hunter-gatherer. If medical science is to be believed, all that sitting is slowly killing us. Now I'm not in a medically qualified position to say whether or not this is true but I think we can all agree that being slouched over probably isn't great for our posture.

Standing desks are, and have been for a while, a popular choice for those who have suffered back injuries. However, they're also becoming popular among those who wish to tackle the rampant sedentary lifestyles prevalent in modern society (as in, they want to spend less time sitting). For the last week I've been using a standing desk adaptor, which sits on top of a normal desk and lets you use two monitors and a keyboard and mouse while homo erectus instead of homo sedens (sedentus?). Surprisingly, even after such a short time I'm able to see some of the benefits of a standing desk.

Aside from the more obvious advantages, such as the supposed extra calories you can burn from standing, there are some welcome added extras. For example, I've noticed much-improved concentration when working. When you're sat in a chair it's all too easy to lose focus as you slump, but standing seemingly forces you to engage not only your body but also your brain.

The space taken up by the standing adaptor also leads to restricted desk space, but, for me at least, this is certainly a good thing. It leaves far less room for knick-knacks, odds-and-sods, brick-a-brack and general detritus. My desk is now de-cluttered and minimal as a designer's polo neck. A tidy desk is a tidy mind. I'm even eating my lunch standing up.
