I started a new job a month ago. I like my job and I like my co-workers, but what I would really like is to work from home. When should I ask or should I ask at all?

I have a small home based computer business in Australia and need some allowable tax deductions. I understand that assets such as office furniture, plant & equipment are immediately tax deductible (don't need to be depreciated) if they're under $1,000. What are some things I could buy for my home office to reduce my tax? Thanks in advance

Starting in about a month, my wife and I will both be working from home a fair amount. We are both on the phone a lot.
We want to pay as little as possible and are trying to figure out how to deal with the phone situation. I currently use Google Voice and make and receive most of my calls on the home phone, which works well for me.
I'm not sure how to deal with the apparent need for 2 phones. Both of us have cell-phones, but we're on the phone so much that we'd rather not be on the cell phones all day. We could obviously just get a 2nd Google Voice number for incoming calls, but I'm not sure how to deal with receiving or making calls while the other person is on the home phone.
Thoughts? Should we get a Skype or Vonage number? Just get a 2nd landline? Any good free/cheap options that I'm missing? We're in Portland, OR if that matters. Thanks!

Please suggest a comfy and supportive office chair for my home office that doesn't look too office-like. I would like something more style-ish and homey looking than the standard workplace office chair.

I'm looking to go paperless, and have been quite impressed by what I've read about the Neatdesk
I'm looking for something similar to compare it to(so I don't buy the first thing I see), and I recall seeing some "X"-shaped scanner somewhere in some magazine(Wired is ringing a bell, but I really do not recall), but no amount of Google-fu can help me locate it again.
Has anybody seen such a thing? [more inside]

Is there such a thing as a dark-colored (black or brown) chair mat? Possibly woodgrain? If so, where can I get one?

We need to install a hanging system on our conference room wall that will allow us to easily swap paper items of various sizes and thicknesses (posters, printer proofs, regular ol' paper). The space is about 4 feet wide.
Does anyone have any experience with this thing? Hangman Products Clip-it Strip
Reminds me of the strips that were installed at the top of chalkboards in grade school. It seems like they were never strong enough and teachers struggled to keep things in there.
Any other product recommendations?

I have tons of magazines. They are my facvorite thing...each week I buy about 5-10. I am wondering if anyone has any great shelving for magazines or just great examples of storage that I can see online? I'm really looking for a great home office type solution. I read ReadyMade every month hoping to my find my dream solution but never do. Does anyone have any sites they recommend?
