Here you go:

IKEA | Table tops & legs | VIKA system | VIKA AMON | Table top

Just pop two of those together. And yes, I refuse to link to the Ikea.ca site for the simple matter of them not including dimensions in inches. The US site has inches AND cm, why can't it be done for the .ca site? Grrrr...

Slouching is bad . One of the reason I am going all out on a chair, I have awful posture and it is mostly because the chairs I have used aren't comfortable or supporting enough. I sit in my computer chair usually 8+ hours a day and it does a number on my back (and my butt). I've bought 3-4 $100-$150 chairs in the past couple of years and they always start falling apart within a year or so. The Aeron has a 12 year warranty so I won't be needing a new chair for a long while.

hehe, the slouching part was a joke ;) but i hear ya, i spend 12 + hours in a chair myself, usually at work where i have no choice of the chair i sit in, though they are usually comfortable enough... as long as i lock the chairback. The chair i have at home is comfortable, and i hate to give it up, but the seat coushon is toast and i'm now sitting on the bolt plate, which is a bit hard on my tailbone.

I've got some questions for you guys regarding chairs, but i'm going to make a new thread since we're getting a wee bit off topic here heh.


Just to stay on topic, heres an updated pic of my desk... just becuase i'm tired of seeing all your "tidy" desks ;D an thats not my normal chair...

Yes, its on a triplehead2go. The whole settup is made specifically for FSX. it works phenomenally.

Not yet but it's something I'm interested in. Once I have my new monitor and a second 4850 (ordering tomorrow) I plan to buy FSX and maybe get the flight controls for Christmas or at least some assistance in purchasing them.
