    If you are getting sore wrists, it may be a good idea to invest in an anti-RSI keyboard, AKA a MS Natural Keyboard.

    If you are getting RSI, then stopping for a few days wont help, start again and it'll come back.

    There are a few good sites on the web that help teach you to avoid RSI, by doing hand exercises and stuff.

    Personally I dont get RSI, but I know people who do get it really bad.

    Hope this helps

    The Dept of Labour have some good stuff.

    An index of other OOS related things is here.

    Incidentally, if left pain gets worse and causes long term damage. Fix it now! (Says she who had a dose 5 years ago and fixed it).

    Hows the height of your chair, desk, monitor, keyboard and mouse?

    Sometimes people persist using a computer even though these things are all wrong. Your first line of defense is to make sure that your body is on fairly natural angles.

    Chris, at 16 surely there are other things to do in summer. The sun must shine in Palmerston North sometimes.

    The sun has been shining very nicely in Christchurch today as well, did you know? ;-)

    I know. I sat outside and pounded a computer keyboard this morning.
