How's the Weather Up There?

Lab today was quite humbling--and very frustrating to boot. Why? Because my lab set up is taller than I am. I can't see behind any of the equipment without standing on a chair.

It's not even like it's on some giant rack, either. It's just on an ordinary lab bench. So I feel ridiculous climbing on a chair just to turn a lock-in amplifier off.

You'd think the impossibly ludicrous programming and equipment problems my lab partner and I had today would have been more frustrating. But I can eventually fix those. I, however, cannot make myself grow several inches.

I need some sort of easily portable step-stool.
