Re: Dr. Rick Mehaffy

Sure. Many people, myself included, swear by him.

BTW, did you ever get the email I sent a while ago about doing real-time analysis of livejournal posts and blogs in general? I work for Coral8 (www.coral8.com) a company that built a general purpose engine for processing massive volumes of messages and analyzing them in real-time. We recently prototyped an adapter for the SixApart Atom update feed, so we can now build some pretty cool demos.

Not sure if this is of interest, but I thought there was no harm in asking :) If you want to chat about this, please send me an email to mark@coral8.com.

RSI in my field means Rapid Sequence Intubation, to give people a stable airway.

So I guess that means I should shut up now.

RSI and Dvorak

My really significant RSI problem basically went away almost overnight when I switched to a Dvorak keymap, on the advice of a fellow grad student of mine with a particularly bad RSI problem -- she basically couldn't type for a year. At the same time, I switched to split keyboards too, and drastically cut down on caffeine.

Watch this stuff, it's serious. And try things to see what works for you. Some people swear by wearing RSI braces only when typing, some except when typing, some only during sleep.
