I fell behind here the last few weeks and getting caught up has beeen harder than I thought it would be. Among the causes have been starting the new semester at school; our lousy weather; and the effects of a terrible ergonomic situation.
This last issue--ergonomics--is important. For reasons that are too complicated to go into here, I've had to re-locate and re-organize my work space. This is only temporary, but I'm using furniture that's not designed for computer work. So I've had back, neck, and back pain lately. It's taken away from my productivity and dampened my enthusiasm for things that I have to do on the computer [which is just about everything!].
The solutions are not complicated and since the problems are rather common, I've included some links I hope everyone can find useful.
