I heard a rumor somewhere that the original microsoft ball mouse design was shown in left- and right-handed versions. some bigwig saw the left handed one and thought it looked better for the mass market and it became the right-handed microsoft product.

I'm left handed, and I absolutely hate mice that are anything but symetrical. Makes using one so much more problematic.

I'm also a computer operator, and have had carpal tunnel problems for the past several years. I'm getting worried because they are getting bad enough that I think surgery may be forthcoming.

I may have to learn to beat off with my other hand.

with my fingers touching the spacebar of my keyboard, my elbows are both resting on the desk. i dont hold my arms up. and I shove my keyboard WAYYYY back.

I then slide my chair forward and lean back like a boss. i lay back at about a 45 degree angle.

never have back, neck, or wrist problems.

I will not be cut on for this, I'll just take vacation or something.
Hah, avoid the knife man! I ended up having to wear braces at night to keep my arms straight. They are like the waders kids wear in the pool. I feel like a penguin at night. I also got a nice keyboard tray that is lower and tilts up, the idea is keeping my arms as straight as possible. It has made a difference and I have avoided the knife so far. I have just heard of too many surgeries that have gone wrong. Ofcourse, I need new knees as well. Maybe I'm just a -----.

I can't get my chair high enough to get my wrists off the desk. I also have my monitor sitting on a stack of boxes so I can't scoot the keyboard back, lol. This kind of sucks.

If you have either CTS or RSI, the answer is "trackball".

not an issue if you do the relax laid bax seat method. the top of my shoulder is about 7 inches above the top of my desk. eye leve is about 60% up from the bottom of my monitors--which are 5" off the desk.

Boy, you work fast.

I just started into this little abomination today:



Found about 15 years worth of rust and one very crappy patch job behind a lot more bondo than I'd expected. It looks like they used a brazing torch to weld a plate over the hole. And I can't even imagine how the hole got there in the first place.

My new CHRA:
The bearings and bearing races are made from M50 and the retainer from silicon-bronze for high temperature capability. The gas piston rings will be Inconel so they will also last forever. The only thing that will kill this turbo in the next 10-years is a foreign object or oil starvation. Its not experimental, it's standard issue in the TR30R rally car spec turbo.
