laugh Sitting still and peering at pixels wreaks havoc with old bodies like mine!

hug Bruja, can you increase your screen size? (or put your glasses on LOL) I KNOW the feeling all too well, but I found lowering screen resolution on a modern monitor helped a LOT with Sims 1.
And get a decent computer chair. You need to sit in the right position or it will make you ache.

Thanks, Sita. I admit that I've been working on a laptop for sheer convenience, since this is such a busy time. I need to get back to the newer desktop and its nice ergonomic chair.

But the keyboard on that one isn't working right, and I'm a big user of hot keys in PSP.

I wondered about that - laptops are VERY bad for posture.

(I used to work with a Health and Safety Officer - he drove everyone nuts and was way too officious - the annoying thing was he was often RIGHT X)

Time for a new keyboard?

Possibly. This time of year is so busy that I haven't checked to see what else might be the problem. I've got a few other possible computer issues; I need to make myself a list of what I need to fix them, and try to get everything in a single trip. Living in the boonies, about 30 km from 3 different cities (in 3 different directions) big enough to support much beyond convenience and grocery stores means lists and careful planning to avoid wasting huge amounts of time and gas.

I thought maybe today, but it's snowing, and 15 cm of snow is expected between now and nightfall. I got a vast amount of Xmas shopping accomplished yesterday, so maybe I'll stay home and wrap presents. Another bad posture activity!

<<hugs>>

We live in a small town and it's still hard to get organised and get all the bits we need, so I feel your pain, and with snow as well... Can you order a keyboard online?

Hope your back is better soon, Bruja. Can you use Brufen cream (ibuprofen)?

The only thing wrong with my back is insufficient movement. I just need to remind myself to get out of the chair and do some tai chi exercises. I'm really amazingly healthy, free of all the major health risks that come with age. As for creams, I found that glucosamine/chondroiten cream was the only thing that really worked when I tore a rotator cuff by slipping on ice when I was carrying a bag stuffed with hard cover books.

Sounds interesting, reading up on it. I have some osteoarthritis, and the brufen cream is the only painkiller I use, but the chondroitin sounds as if it might well be helpful.
