Ah, I *used* to have a total of ~four hours a day eaten by commuting. I'm
now living in London so my commute is a nice 25-30 minute cycle ride from
home to the office. That cycle ride acts as a way to wake up in the mornings
and as a way to burn off tensions of the day in the evenings. If I do use
public transport then I'm looking at a 40 minute commute; at least early in
the mornings the DLR isn't too crowded.

Whilst I can work from home reasonably well, I do miss having the gaggle of
screens I have at work.
