Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI)

I’ve been teaching myself python in attempt to gain some programming ability. An opportunity came about at work for me to exercise my newly learned skills. I coded for a week straight. A lot of errors needed to be corrected and I had to learn about cgi. For my first useful programming attempt I think it went well. In the process I discovered Repetitive Stress Injury (RSI). I’ve had issues with pain before from using the computer, but this went further the usual. A day or two away from the computer usually fixes the issue, but this time it seemed to linger. That is how I ran into the Workrave. “Workrave is a program that assists in the recovery and prevention of Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI).
