Computer injuries

Just now, I've noticed my fingertip ache. I guess it's because of extensive using of a/the touchpad (sorta "mouse" for laptops).
Thing is, I rarely use the left click button - I double-tap on the pad surface instead. That's apart from that this finger is also used in typing among other lilfelluhs. :cry:

(Share your hardware injuries - I'll rest my finger for now.:faint:)

Does banging your head under a computer desk while fitting cables or plugs count?
If so, I've had a lot of computer injuries.
The start and end to every story is the same. But what comes in between you have yourself to blame.

Does hitting your head on the monitor after dozing off count?

Perfect!
:up:

In that case then I would like 50 - 60 similar incidents taken into consideration.

I probably don't know how to use a laptop keyboard the "right" way.

The proper way to use a keyboard—any keyboard is not to have your wrists touch anything at all, but rather to have your hands hover in a straight line from your arms. That way no blood veins, sinews or nerves are constricted.

The touchpad is utterly useless, except for an emergency. While it still was my only option, I frequently had my hands crossed, trying to use all keyboard shortcuts to make a selection and perform a standard drag with the touch pad. Oh god.

I can't "swipe" on my router's touch screen either.
