Gadgeteer team’s work from home (WFH) setups – Julie Strietelmeier

ARTICLE – Like so many others, COVID has changed our daily routines in a big way. For me, I’ve been working from home since the middle of March 2020. Before then, I rarely worked from home during the 33 years that I’ve worked for Cummins Inc. After a few months it started to feel like …

ARTICLE – I was already working from home at the beginning of last year (and had been off and on over the last decade) so there wasn’t a big shift as the stay at home recommendations began to roll in. The big shift came in March when I was laid off and my wife’s company …

Gadgeteer team’s work from home (WFH) setups – Joe Porletto

ARTICLE – Having spent the majority of my life living and working in NYC, I’ve gotten pretty adept at making the best of small spaces. From the tiny one-room apartments I used to live in, to the slightly less tiny studios and startups I’ve worked for, space in NYC is always at a premium. Now …

Gadgeteer team’s work from home (WFH) setups – Bill Henderson

ARTICLE – For years, employees at our office have been asking to work from home—to deaf ears. Covid changed all that. If anything good can come from this god-awful pandemic, it’s that we discovered that working from home is not only doable, but preferable. So much so, that my employer is now selling the building. …

Gadgeteer team’s work from home (WFH) setups – Andy Chen

ARTICLE – About a decade ago, the government agency I work for declared they were going “paperless”. Haven’t we heard that since electronics were invented? Just before the pandemic hit, our office was starting to have an all-electronic option for nearly every kind work we do- then we were told to Work From Home. Good …

How It Started ARTICLE – Back in March of 2020 when Central Pennsylvania closed schools for two weeks in a “Stop the Spread” initiative, I wasn’t sure how long I’d have to work from home. I set up my own personal laptop — an aging 11” MacBook Air — and downloaded Adobe Creative Cloud and …

Gadgeteer team’s work from home (WFH) setups – Brooke Miller Hall

ARTICLE – When my family started our work-from-home/school-from-home adventure, our set-up was loosey-goosey. My husband started in the already-established basement office but quickly found it too dark and depressing. So he moved to the sunroom. However, lounging on the couch with his laptop was awkward and uncomfortable. My boys mostly hid in their rooms. And …

ARTICLE – I’m a teacher.  When the pandemic hit and the campus locked down, we were given three days to take whatever we needed to complete the semester from home and we haven’t been allowed back on campus since.  I’ve always taught a few classes online, so I knew what I needed to make my …

ARTICLE – Desktop setups are usually personal, and mine is no exception. The driving undercurrent for my layout is threefold. Multiple monitors: I started using them at work, and now have it ingrained into my DNA. Left and Right screens, with the third screen of the laptop available as a tertiary workspace if needed. I …

ARTICLE – Julie asked us all to do a write-up of our work-from-home tech setup. I don’t work.  My wife doesn’t work. Well, we did, but we retired, so we don’t really have a work from home setup.  But, writing for The Gadgeteer does require some tech, and my wife and I use laptops, so …
