I'm doing what

Recently I tried playing around with OS X again and put some effort into figuring out the keyboard shortcuts. I find using a mouse or trackpad to be painful and using a keyboard other than my kinesis for an extended interval is pretty questionable as well.

This led me to realize that I'm doing two things that an earlier version of me never thought could happen. I'm willingly using a Mac OS.

Also in my Dungeons and Dragons game I'm actually playing a human, the third edition revised the system to actually make it worthwhile to be "human".

Though this reinstallation of my life into a different OS has made me a bit slower in responding to email.

(Also all of this is much better than feeling some of the unpleasant overwhelming feelings I've been dealing with for the past few days. Perhaps after more time has passed I'll blog that part of my life).

Does that mean you're using OS X only? Do you have a dual boot machine, or more than one machine? Just curious. I have not used OS X much myself, but I hear it is solid and great to use.

I know what you mean about playing a human. I sometimes found being a human was worth it for the versatility that they get...no bonuses, but no penalties either. I once played a pair of gnomish twins. What a wild ride that became. :)

Ah yeah, but Mac OS X is really a variant of FreeBSD with a pretty wrapper (Aqua, I think)... so I think that doesn't really count. ;)

And you know that, of course... just had to say it. It's UNIX!!! :)

but a contour mouse (about $125 but the company paid ) makes all the difference for me. Contour Design

I don't think I have carpal tunnel. I think I have a tendency to tendonitis on the tendon on the outside edge of my wrist. The small rotations that occur when using a regular mouse aggravate it. The contour mouse is too big and I think I use whole arm movements to move.

Does Cal Tech have an ergo evaluation department or resources to get an outside evaluation?
