    When I'm at work, I go crazy when I'm not using dual monitors. I like to keep certain stuff on each screen. I usually keep messaging, email, web stuff, etc on the smaller screen, and then remote desktop on the other, larger screen.

    Mixer, transport and plugins on the right hand display, sequencer on the left.

    Or video on the right hand screen (DVD, webcam etc...) and iChat/Adium/Safari on the left.

    Download progress bars on the macbook's small screen, along with sticky notes, everything else then is on the main monitor.

    quite often my primary screen has what im working on, second has itunes or eyetv on, when im hard at work maybe maya on one and photoshop on other or texture mapping on one and modelling on the other. couldnt do without it, think i prefer a 24 inch plus 19inch to a single 30 inch.

    I have a lot of windows and programs always on. I even use Spaces to organize my workspaces a bit better. One for photo editing, one for downloads, one for documents/email/ical, and one for general internet browsing. I sometimes also watch tv shows or movies on one screen while still doing work on the other.
