I'm nearing the end of my second day typing with wrist splints. So far, it's been mostly meetings, so I'm not sure what will happen if I turn up the speed with typing. My first few tests have hinted that I haven't lost speed, but my stamina is way down.
Mostly, the splints are encouraging me to be careful and slow down if I start to stress my wrist or fingers.
On the good news front, I'll be able to keep writing the blog. Every day might be too much for me, but I'll try to update at least four times a week.
I refuse to make this blog about RSI. Instead, I'll keep on with random thoughts, snatches of Tinderbox ideas, and snatches of creative writing/photo essays.
Yesterday I started setting up the new laptop I'm using for work. The iBook and Tinderbox have served me well (I'll post on this tomorrow), but I have to begin entering content into the Windows interface soon. So Admissions ordered a rather nice Dell Latitude x300 for me to do my work on. I like it; I wouldn't mind keeping it. It's not the ibook, but I feel more comfortable on intel+Linux than I do on ppc+Linux. Windows is the only annoying part of this.
To alleviate the problem, I've installed software from The Open CD, a collection of Free and Open Source software for Windows. Oh. and The GIMP 2.0, which is finally out for Windows.
Now all I need is Tinderbox for Windows, and I'll be happy.
