The Home Office Book
Alvarez
1990

Time to get your home office in shape. This book is pretty comprehensive. All the those important decisions on furniture, equipment, and design are helpfully analyzed for convenience.

  • What version of DOS do you need?
  • IBM Clone or the real IBM?
  • Lotus 1-2-3 or VisiCalc?
  • America Online or Prodigy?
  • Cordless phone or phone with a cord?

Of course you should also consider driving or walking to the post office because this book is still a few years from widespread home use of the Internet. Maybe you want to consider getting a fax machine?

I did get a kick out the bygone days of the early 1990s. Clunky computers, dot matrix printers and so many floppy disks are quite a contrast to the technology of today. COVID makes home offices kind of important, so maybe a more up to date book on home offices is required.

The good old days of Lotus 1-2-3…

  1. Interesting re “racks” — when I see that term, I think of server farms, not wall-mounted shelves for personal computers.
