    This needs to be re-emphasised. The flat bottom means you can just leave it sitting, like if you're noodling away at some tabs at your home office desk and get called away - just sit it on your desk...

    Here's a quote that's been stuck in the back of my head for the better part of 15 years. Without googling to confirm, I think it may be a Ralph Waldo Emerson quote.
