I had a work-from-home day yesterday due to my sons daycare being closed. I got a ton of unit tests written up on the EF model I've been creating, all on a little laptop with a little screen. I hate it because it's like trying to map the Grand Canyon by looking through a soda straw.
But, I came into work today to find 2 brand-freakin'-new HP LA2306x monitors sitting on my desk! WooHoo! I LOVE screen real-estate. My desktop is now 3,840 pixels wide and 1080 tall. Still smaller than my setup at home, but better than I had last week here.
I waas already using my machine and those monitors to remote into a few servers at work. While I'm rewriting an internal website from scratch, I also build and maintain the MS System Center infrastructure.
Have you considered a KVM switch for these occasions? They aren't exactly expensive, and they can be quite good - I used to use them to cut the number of monitors and keyboards I needed when I had separate print and file servers. And you can get them in DVI-D these days.
If you get an email telling you that you can catch Swine Flu from tinned pork then just delete it. It's Spam.
I don't have the desk space at home to put the switch and cables as my machine and dual 24s takes up the entire desk and I need room what little room is left for other stuff. I really don't work from home very much to make it worth it either, maybe 5 times a year.
