I will soon be emerging from quals studying. What I have learned during this process is...

I need a desk lamp.

This is my desk.

It is a left-handed IKEA Galant.

I have a 36" monitor in the corner, so I'd like something with a lot of flexibility, so I can adjust it to shine directly over papers. So one of those hinged things, maybe?


I am willing to spend maybe $50 if it's like a really, really good desk lamp. Like the best you've ever had.

Please share to relevant subblogs? I think hackerspace might be one but I don't spend a lot of time there.
