I know there's no way to account for individual calibration of monitors and viewing conditions, but what should one assume in this regard? (Or don't because it's futile.)

I ask because I've noticed some of my entries look nothing alike between my home and work monitor. At home my room is dark, poorly illuminated (by choice), and my monitor is one of the best on the market. At work it's a light overload with shit monitors. I use the Aa plugin for all websites in both locations.

Look at the histogram. It should always be your guide.

That still doesn't differentiate between local viewing conditions.

Still, Cory's advice is sound. In essence he is saying to trust your home set-up which is configured to produce good results when viewed on properly calibrated monitors. I think we have to assume that most of the voters here are sensible enough to have paid at least some attention to the quality of their monitor and configuring it to be at least close to calibrated.
