The completed desk, partly raised. It goes several inches lower, or a good deal higher, so that it's quite comfortable for both sitting and standing.
I use the mat on the floor when I'm standing to keep my feet from getting tired.
And I heartily recommend the book sitting on my desk, Coders at Work. It's inspiring to see how much great work some people have done, and also a little depressing to see how much I have yet to learn, but mostly it's eye-opening to learn where the experts agree and disagree on how to go about the craft of writing software.
