    I read through the post twice, and maybe I'm just too slow to catch on to what you're saying, but, huh?

    Do you work for an employer? If so, you've got a two-man team and just got your first...

    We all sit at our computers for hours a day. Make sure you get up and move around ok before it's too late. Don't want work-related injuries y'know?

    careful for carpal tunnel... ugh! Do you have a wrist support? My last job was terrible for that. My wrist was always hurting. I got one of those gel wrist pad thingies and I think it helped.

    (Granted, right after I got it, I got downsized, so it could have been THAT instead... however, I wouldn't recommend the latter to anyone with a choice.)

      I have had a mouse-user-callouse at the top of my wrist for many years, no amount of manicuring seems to help...

      If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.

        I don't have that...yet.

        I don't like those gel wrist pads. I know it's probably the point, but I feel like I can't move my wrist when I use them, therefore my mouse doesn't move freely.

          Tablet = no CTS.

          Best health investment for any designer.

          Walk around? Absolutely. Helps the brain be more creative and productive as well.

                I'm thinking my business will buy me one of these at the end of the year. Usually sometime in December my business buys me all kinds of cool stuff so the taxable income base is just a little smaller.
                it's deadline and I'm GROUCHY.

                      I used to use a tablet instead of a mouse at home but then it just stopped working. I bought another one - a different brand. But turns out the new one is poo and I've been avoiding using...maybe I should sell this new one and buy the same one as my old one...
