I hope this helps!

As soom of you know, I have back problems. These problems started inching up into my neck in the last few months and I realized it was making it difficult to work. I also realized it had started since I changed from my computer desk in my office to a table in the dining room.

So we found a cheap new computer desk and sat it up last night. So far I like it. Lots of room for the cats to sprawl, and the keyboard on a shelf so that it's both lower, and not in a place for them to sleep on it while I'm tryingto work. I'm having trouble getting the mouse placed properly, but so far it's an improvement. We'll see how I do on actual writing, since this is my first day at it.

The last two nights I was going to make big changes at the FM site, but on the first night my connection kept going down and on the second we were moving the computer. I'll have to get back in there and get to work, though. I started the moving process, and I want it done by September, if possible.

The guys aren't really sure about this yet. Edmond and Zaphod keep moving around from one spot to another and attacking things they shouldn't. It'll be a couple days before they settle down. The rest of the cats are mostly 'Yeah, yeah, we've seen it all before. She'll have the desk covered in no time, and then where will we rest?"

But so far, I think I'm going to like it. My neck is very sore today, though. I'm hoping it will clear up over the next few days and I can enjoy this. I also have ugly cords strung across two rooms that are going to have to change... but for the moment, here I am, and I'm going to get back to work on Summer Storm. Current count is 59,036. Let's see how I do on this lovely, rainy afternoon! Posted by Picasa

Hugs on the neck pain. For me, too, the clincher was the height of keyboard and monitor. My desk at work is better than my desk at home. And the dratted bifocals don't help in either place.
