Programming – demanding on the body September 16, 2008 3:44 pm

Did you know that programming can be physically as well as mentally exhausting? After a marathon of coding my body aches!

Hey! Someone’s playing Tom-toms in my head! Where’s my vitamin A!?

its usually not the coding that makes you ache, its the lack of proper nutrition, posture, hydration and breaks. 🙂

unless you are talking about carpal tunnel

I’ll take the former but the latter reminds me I have a video to make about preventing carpal tunnel.

Oh, let’s not forget poor posture and lacking ergonomics. For 10 years I actually sat on a wooden kitchen chair and then a friend upgraded his office and I actually ended up with a padded comfortable office chair.

Amen to all this! Hopefully the tom-toms are at least banging a catchy tune.
