I tried listening to an audio book at the gym last week (basketball was on TV and that's pretty ridiculously dull). Unfortunately the tempo of the audio book didn't really lend itself to a workout.
I finally have my computer set up on a desk in the second bedroom. It's really nice to have that somewhat taken care of (there's still plenty of arranging and cramming and tetrising to make everything fit). I also discovered that without my KVM I'm out of USB ports so I need another hub.
