    Ergonomy? Is that anything like Ergonomics?

    Wow, the sting of your sharp wit in response to my dull, colorless OP is nearly intolerable.

    does that mean that soon women will find guys with hunches more attractive because they're better suited to high demand computer related activities, and thus bigger pay checks? poor quasimodo should've just waited around, he could've scored esmerelda if only he could've told her the hunch was because of his sucessful career working for an online superstore.

    In the future an attractive person will be called "A real bell-ringer!"

    I sit on the internet all day when I'm not doing other things. I like music and I have eaten a hamburger before.

    Good thing I go to a chiropractor every two weeks :p

    Although no running away from the carpal tunnel syndrome O___O

    I sit about two feet away from my monitor, always leaned back in my chair. My feet are on some of my speakers and my head is on my head rest. Ahh, so comfortable.

    I love the sound of this, but my eyesight won't permit it. It could be my whole problem is the middle-aged eyesight thing where everything in a comfortable sitting range is in the wrong range for clear vision. Print is always bit "swimmy" and shimmery, and slightly blurred. I always end up hunching forward to be able to read better.
