Nancy,

We tried putting remote controls on coiled cables attached to the
monitors (an idea I got from a Best Buy display) but they walked out the
door within two weeks. Now we keep them behind the desk until requested
and then we charge them out (they are barcoded).

Headphones - We have a set attached to each workstation secured by a
metal cable stay attached to the desk with a one-way screw (purchased at
Home Depot - but not always readily available) and we have experienced
"zero shrinkage", as they say in the pizza business. When a couple
people come along to watch a tape together, we check out a second set of
headphones (they are also barcoded). My advice is to buy headphones that
are bulky and ugly, but comfortable. Its like having a bike in the city,
forget trying to make them look cool, headphones that are cool and smart
disappear.
