I'm lucky that where I work has an office devoted to ergonomic issues, so I went to talk about my issues and borrowed some RSI-friendly input devices. The ideal ergonomic state is to have your elbows at 90 degree angle and your screen barely below eye level.

  5. Hello everyone. I am new here and I hope you all can help me out. I was disturbed by my last dermatologist appointment. I may be overreacting, but I'm not sure. I'm sorry that this is a bit long, but I want to give you all the background. After 10 years of being mad at my acne my mom sent me to a derm. I'm 20, and I live at my college.
