People say there's some sort of law of diminishing returns, but I haven't found it yet. My 7-screen setup is working just fine for me :) http://www.kconnolly.net/office.aspx

@Shmulevich: F-15s have a handle on the outboard leading edges of the seat, near the thighs. There is a safety lever on the left one that locks both of them in place. On ACES 2 ejection seats, anyway. See this pic:

It is worth pointing out that many fighter ejection levers are protected by yet another lever that must be moved out of the way on purpose before the primary ejection lever can be pulled. Also, when not in flight, a safety pin prevents it from being pulled at all. I analogize this to an "Advanced" button/tab/etc with a disclaimer that generally says something like "Don't fiddle with things you don't understand, or the universe will implode".
