I'd first like to say that I'm very upset with the lack of responses I got from that post.
No way in hell, 10 is too many plus I don't even like them.
Balancing the two is much easier with two monitors. I have work on one and LJ rests silently taunting me behind Outlook. When I'm waiting for envs to load or a server goes down, I refresh LJ and comment like a fiend. When I'm thinking of what to test next, I refresh and let my meta-process mind take over the thinking. So, I get all my work done an multitask LJ quite easily, really.
