This is just a quick update to let you know what is going on with this blog and why it hasn’t been updated recently.
A few months ago, I started suffering from RSI, no doubt caused by spending 60+ hours/week sitting on front of the computer for many years. I’ve done my best to reduce the number of time that I spend typing and using the mouse each day, but because that’s my day job, it mostly meant cutting on my evening and weekend side projects like this blog.
Based on information I found online and in books (this one in particular), I’ve started doing exercises and stretches, I made my desk more ergonomic and got a good chair, and I’m seeing a physical therapist next week. I’m confident I can heal, but this is something that takes a while, so I might have to stay away from this blog for a little longer.
I have no plans to drop it completely, though. This is just a temporary hiatus. I hope you’ll consider hitting the RSS button and subscribing so you automatically get notified when I’m back. Cheers, and read up on ergonomics and RSI before it’s too late. As they say, an ounce of prevention…
