    Hey, a few days ago, my dad, being a tattooist, brought up the fact that working on a computer for hours and hours can cause Carpal Tunnel effects. Me, being a nice guy, thought I would post the exercises for Carpal Tunnel that should be done every now and then. 'Cause if you can't feel your hands (or you can really feel your hands... i.e. pain), you can't map.

    :laugh: Thanks for being worried for our physical health. But a proper mouse and keyboard position should avoid carpal tunnel effects.

    Doing these exercises causes my cat to jump onto my desktop and begin attacking my hands.

    Thanks :(

    Funny, I actually do a lot of this without thinking. I've been thinking I should try stopping doing these weird hand motions while I'm at my computer, but maybe not. :p
