First time Commenter,
The VPN's has been great for my family. It allows me to work at home on a regular basis and when I need to be present at home for various reasons. It saves 20% on my gas and commute time to work. Traffic is always great. Stepping over my daughter's toy's going from the office to the kitchen is my only problem. Seriously, I feel I actually get more done because there are fewer interruptions than in the office.
