Eye Strain

Ok, nothing like posting only to link someone else, but here goes!

I found 22 Ways to Reduce Eye Strain at Your Computer via LifeHacker.

Now, I've stared at computer screens for a fairly large portion of my life, and only in the last couple years have I started developing eye-strain related ailments (head aches, and occassional blurred vision.)

Other things I found via the above links is How To Exercise Your Eyes, and a program called WorkRave. WorkRave may just replace my home-spun 'egg timer' application that bugs me at defined intervals to "'stand up, relax your eyes, etc...".

Ugh, I can't read your post, my eyes hurt too bad. Maybe I just need a LCD at work. *cough**cough*

Actually, it was discussed. This week even! So, cross your fingers and hope that the money can flow!

I see you updated the site design...looks spiffy :)

The default values used by Workrave aren't very developer friendly though...interruptions every 3 minutes? egad, I wouldn't be able to get any work done!
