not enough room for everything I want to have on it
I like to have as few on my desk as possible.
Laptop, one or two big monitors, keyboard and mouse, and preferably a little extra space for a notebook which I use occasionally.
And at the end of the day it all goes in my bag and back home (except the monitor(s), keyboard and mouse)
I would like three or four monitors plus the notebook. I now have two monitors plus the notebook and there is no room for anything else. I will be getting another computer fairly soon so it will a challenge to figure out what to do.
Going from one person per less than a square meter with about 16 people crammed in a tiny room to one person per about two to three square meters with twelve in a bigger room.
Where is your workplace? Calcutta?
When I see that kind of space/person, the movie Soylent Green comes to mind.*
*I have 20-25 m2 office with an occasional room-mate. Even the clerks at their cubbies have about 2 m2 for the desktop. If I'm not mistaken, even a prison cell has more space than you currently get at your improved location.

That's a luxury not many of us get (although that's how I started).
I guess I have a little more than three square meters, depending on which desk I sit at.
At least the room is pretty spacious, so it's not as claustrophobic as my old workplace (which was really just horrible).
Today I was sitting next to the cutest girl in the office, so I kind of wanted the one square meter back

But those people have to live there, I only have to write code there
A cubicle sounds even worse than an open space office.
We get like 1 x 2 m desks, but at least I can look outside and talk to my coworkers.
I don't think the cubicle is a thing here in the Netherlands, I've never actually seen one anyway.
My team has gone from 14 people down to 5. We 5 have had to assume responsibility for those 14 folks' work, along with several other smaller products for people from other groups that have been laid off as well. This has also resulted in a 'brain gap', where we have no one on staff immediately capable of debugging customer issues. We now have very slow response times, angry customers, and trips to customer sites by engineers. Of course, this reduces our pace on new products even further.
This is not a happy workplace, unless you count the gallows humor .
I once got paid to stick around for months at a company that had been purchased by a bigger fish, and they needed someone on-site who knew our system while they transitioned to something else at their head-office.
Myself and our accountant had 6,000 square feet split amongst the two of us.
I was reading an article on Entrepreneur.com (entrepreneur magazine) and forgot about the tab.
At first I blamed Firefox when I saw that it had eaten over 4 Gigabytes of ram and lots of CPU.
Then I investigated more closely and closed individual tabs until I found the bad one.
See the taskmanager output here : https://i.stack.imgur.com/USEhP.png[^]
Then I decided to load up Chrome and see what would happen on that page:
It's not been loaded as long but it's at 1.2GB and climbing and eating CPU too. https://i.stack.imgur.com/fd8vI.png[^]
I know I shouldn't expect anything better than this from a cheap magazine web site...but I do!!!
I think more sites than we expect do this kind of terrible behavior too.
Well, at least CP seems to be a good net citizen.
Go ahead and make them feel bad about it. Show them what they're doing wrong, and that a high school kid could fix it for them in about 10 minutes. Or to expedite the process, offer to fix the problem yourself at whatever your premium rate is, multiplied by some factor.
I think they know how terrible it is because they basically run numerous streaming videos as you try to read the article. It's a terrible site. Don't go there. It's now off the list or I will pull the articles back with my text browser.
Are they trying to mine bitcoins with your equipment?
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
