  1. Hey Chris, sorry to hear you are battling repetitive stress injury. Are you using a mouse? Have you considered using a trackball?

  3. I've been using the Logitech M570 for about three years now and it transfers all the motion from your wrist to a light touch of the thumb on the trackball. You lose a slight amount of pointing accuracy but the fact that you can keep your wrist completely still on the mousepad means your wrist will thank you.

  5. I find I need to clean the gunk-and-crumbs out of the trackball about every 3 days. (It's designed to be popped out with a finger through an access port in the bottom) It's the same kind of stuff that falls out of your keyboard. Gross, but worth it to save your wrist some pain.

  7. Best wishes, I love both the Linux Unplugged and the SelfHosted show, and hope your wrist gets a break!
