telecommuting and work/life balance

All:   So as a full time user experience designer and a mother of a toddler, I find that very few companies allow designers to work from home a couple of days a week, or allow flexibility in schedules. I am lucky because I have a great boss and company that allows that - I live in the Bay area and find that my commute RT is about 56 miles each day.

chess players. They are the kind of people who can think 39 actions
ahead, for each of the 27 different possible use scenarios.

large tables and lists with lots of columns - where are the best practices?

Hello, I’m looking for some good practice on designing tables and lists for a corporate web site.
The challenge is how to simplify very long tables of articles (technical parts) with lots of parameters (columns).
I do have the Edward Tufte books and know that part of the story. But at this moment I’d rather study some real life examples available on the net. Anyone? Thanks!

Functional Specs (long and getting longer)[signed]

>> First on consequences: If ecommerce website were to fail me by $20 I
>>might not be killed, but their business would suffer by more than $20.

Hear, hear.
Both E-Trade and McAfee lost me as a client/potential client in the past
week for reasons sparked by issues on their sites and I am sure the effects
were far more widespread.

Now on to the cause, the digital/web domain is the only endeavour in which
people prototype using the "real" thing. To all others a prototype is just
that, a model you construct in order to study the problem.
