New Office Chair

Due to COVID-19, I have been working from home for the past few weeks. Fortunately, I have a nice office setup with a standing desk. I usually stand in the morning and sit in the afternoon. This gives me a good balance which is recommended when using a standing desk.

I quickly noticed that my office chair was not as good as the one I have at work. I realized it was 6 years old and time for an upgrade. The first resource I checked was Wirecutter. They recommended Steelcase and Herman Miller as their top choices but I decided I didn’t want to spend that much on a chair. Their budget choice was a company called Hon which was around $250. I researched the company and found the HON Ignition 2.0 which had good reviews. I decided to give it a try.

Overall I’ve been impressed with the chair. The assembly was a breeze and I had it put together in a few minutes. If you are looking for a $200-300 chair, I think the HON Ignition 2.0 is a good choice.

What office chair do you use?

Want Unlimited Coffee?

Yes, I do! That exactly what I thought when I saw Panera was starting an unlimited coffee subscription for $8.99/month. I thought, what a great deal! I spend more than that on coffee a month so this would be convenient and save me money. I signed up immediately and had been using it for the past couple of weeks until the COVID-19 pandemic happened. Because of the pandemic, they gave me the next 60 days for free which I felt was very generous.

Rapid Ring App

I’ve been using the Ring Doorbell Pro for the past couple of years. It has been a great camera/doorbell with very few issues. Ring recently released a new app for iOS and Android that allows quick access to view the camera. It is called Rapid Ring. The original Ring app is great for video playback and changing settings but at times it is so slow the person ringing your door may have already left. Rapid Ring quickly loads the video feed of any Ring device. If you are experiencing slowness with the current Ring app, I recommend trying Rapid Ring App.
