Re: Telecommuting tips..
I worked from home for 6 months while on bedrest during my pregnancy. I had to lie down, and it destroyed my back, so one recommendation would be to make sure you have a good ergonomic area at which you can work. To echo others, get up, take a shower and everything on time. Don't turn the TV on, I didn't even turn on radio - it's too easy to get distracted, and that's not what they're paying you to do.
We had to upgrade our internet service during my time in, since I RDPed into my work computer and used my work phone via that RDP connection. Make sure you have a stable internet connection that doesn't drop, or else invest in better service.
