New Zealand – Day 2 – Ergonomic desk

Posted by jerry on March 31st, 2007 — Posted in Journal, Technology, Travel

Picture if you will, a badly-designed ironing board. It has a non-removable iron holder at the wide end…

Now, don’t get me wrong – it’s better than trying to iron a shirt on a table with a towel draped over, but it’s like they put the iron stand on the wrong end. So the shirt bunches up and you can’t get the whole shirt back or a whole shoulder on the board without creasing.

But not all was lost – Ironing boards are perfect for improving the ergonomics of the desk when the chair is too low 🙂

And yes, that’s a moleskine pocket cahier – perfect for short trips. It is leaning against the portable printer – canon bjc50 which has an IR connection so I can print direct from the iPaq2750. And that is an iPaq bluetooth keyboard which makes typing sooo much easier!

I’ve never seen anyone try to iron a shirt on the wide end of an ironing board before. Is this really the way you do it?

Hehe – yup I’ve always ironed them that way. I use the narrow end for pressing trousers, but shirts I can do in four moves for the torso and one each for the sleeves – makes it quick and easy with no slippage. But I guess everyone has their own style 🙂

Cheers
