I finally broke down and bought a new 'puter chair today. I went to Fry's to get a part i needed for work and they had some decent chairs on sale. $65! A good one too though i had to assemble it myself LOL<br>This one has a neumatic lift in it so i don't have to use the small palette i was using before to raise up the low lounge chair i was stuck with. Wheels too My arse has never been happier.<br><br>
I have gas in my seat as well. Errrmmm...maybe I need to rephrase that. My chair has air, also. Wouldn't go back to a non-pneumatic posterior park if you paid me.<br><br>Congrats; now you can waste your time on-line in peerless comfort.<br><br>Arrrrgh. What am I writing? I sound like a cheap retail flyer.<br><br>*Washes mouth out with soap*<br><br>
I've wanted to buy a new chair for a long time, but the ones that are made nowadays have arms that make it impossible to lay a board across so you can use it as a sort of portable desk. I grade a lot (and I mean a lot) of papers every semester. Since my "desk" is a computer platform, I absolutely need something on which I can put the papers I'm grading. My current chair (which I've had for 20 years--sign of my age, I guess) has nice rectangular, flat-surfaced wooden arms that extend far enough for me to lay my good old board across them. I really really do want gas at my rear, but I'm going to have to make do with what I've got.<br><br>And that's true too.--Shakespeare, King Lear

A good chair is important! I have a pretty decent one at home that I like a lot. Now at work we have really super duper fantastic chairs, the Aeron chair made by Herman Miller (I think that is who makes them). They are the best chair I have ever sat in. I understand they cost about $1000 a pop or did at the time the company got them.<br><br>Now this is a chair!<br><br>http://www.hermanmiller.com/CDA/product/0,1469,c211-pss2-p8,00.html<br><br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by mikeb_X on 05/10/02 07:16 AM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
