Neck Pain

Discovered the source of one of my "pains in the neck" (besides taxes). My computer did sit up high and to the right of me as I typed. Thus my left neck muscle was strained from the awkward position.

Now I'm in the process or rearranging and rearranging and rearranging my desk space. It's one of those L-shaped deals. I'm moving my computer about every three hours to a new location.

I really need a flat screen.

Just getting a flat screen in and of itself will probably take care of a lot of your headaches. If you wave a pen in front of a CRT monitor, you'll see it "trace" like a strobe light. But if you do it in front of a flat screen it won't. That's because a CRT flickers a bunch of times every second, which causes eyestrain, which causes headaches. Flat screen monitors have constant light, so no more eyestrain.

I almost never get headaches anymore since I switched several years ago, and I used to get them almost every day.

I do want a flat screen, but I want to replace all of my staff (5 total) screens at the same time. Don't have that kind of purchase in my budget. I'm adding "5 Flat Screen Monitors" to my wish list.

Oh, that's right. I forgot you don't deserve one unless everyone else gets one too. That would make it seem like you were special.

It's a good thing you don't need one for medical purposes - like headaches or something.
