Submission + - Work at home contractor? What do I need to know?

BigCanOfTuna writes: As a developer that recently landed a contract that will have me working mainly out of my basement, what should I be prepared for? How is this going to be different than working in a cubicle for pointy-haired people? I imagine that I'll initially be more productive, but I can also see myself being distracted by other things such as Oprah and Slurpee runs. I need strategies for staying focused, staying connected, and most importantly...staying employed!

You are always doing something marginal when the boss drops by your desk.
