I've been dealing with tendinitis in my shoulders on and off for two years. I started working a desk job three years ago and have suspected that sitting at a desk has something to do with it. After being treated with anti-inflammatory steroids three times only to have the pain return, I think I have finally figured out the source of the problem.

Anyone else get racked from doing nothing all day?

I've been working my day gig for about 6 years and haven't had any problems, yet, other than a general lack of interest at times. My eyes glaze over, my breathing pattern slows down, everything blurs and I almost fall out of my chair. It's just not natural to sit like that all day. I leave my desk as often as possible (which is at least once an hour), and take walks during breaks (you gotta hit the stairs, not the elevator) when my schedule allows. I also run 3-7 miles after work at least a couple times a week. I think that helps more than anything else.

Bring back the siesta!

I still think the keyboard should be updated. For a largely right-handed world the qwerty keyboards are heavily loaded for left-handers (with the extremely popular letters a, s, d, c, e, r, t featured on the left hand side).

Yeah, plus... Someone stole one of the 9 guitars my parents bought for me, Chris DeVille isnt writing exactly what I want him to write and all the festivals I have tickets for this year have gone too mainstream.
