That's one of the reasons that I don't work from home very much at this 
point - I don't have a proper office, however I'm hoping to fix that some 
time next year.  The other reasons I don't work from home very much are 
that my job still has a lot of hands-on responsibilities (which I don't 
mind - pulling cable or racking equipment is a nice break from staring at 
a screen for long periods of time), and, unfortunately, upper managements'
perceptions of things like teleworking and flex/comp time have not caught 
up with the times :(
