We recently set up my wife a new work area, and she loves the new location. However the desk/table she is using is very open underneath, and the cords etc were unruly to say the least. So she says “I saw this cable box thingy to tidy up underneath the desk area, on a site called “Bluelounge”. So searched it out and checked out their products, and I must admit I love the simplicity of them all. We ordered a cablebox organizer/manager. We will receive it Wednesday, so I’ll let you know more, but am looking forward to trying it. If it works out I may have to redo under my area, which looks like the flying spaghetti monster, lol.
I have been following rawarrior for about 13 months now, and keep up with Kelly via her web page and her Twitter page. Kelly and her followers, always makes me think, and have brought some humor to a chronic disease. If you know anyone that has RA, her web-blog is a great source of information and support. My RA has been flaring lately, and my present mouse (the Logitech Trackman Wheel) is awesome the rest of the time, but my right thumb is very sore lately. I have been thinking of getting a more ergo friendly mouse. The Wow Pen or the Evoluent ergo mouse look interesting, and I like the design. I was hoping to find some one who is/has used one of them to comment on them, or perhaps another suggestion they prefer. There are a lot of mice out there to choose from, and I would prefer a personal review. At work I have a cheapo OEM mouse that’s killin’ me, so I am considering taking mine back and forth.
Edit: Since this post I have discovered the Logitech Trackman Marble Mouse it is, as we say in the south “mo better” for me. You use your whole hand rather then just your thumb to move the cursor. The other one is simply causing to much of a flare for my overused right thumb (ow). So now as a result I need two
My wife and I have been looking for an alternative to cable for quite a while. We chose the Roku HD at the time as it was (and is) a great bargain. So simple to hook up, you just need WiFi in the home, plug in your Roku, plug in a HDMI cable from Roku puck to tv and register. Voila, streaming channels at your fingertips!! Netflix, Hulu, Hulu +, Amazon, Pandora, and literally most anything you can think of. The Roku HD streams up to 720p HD.
Enter the latest and best Roku yet!! The Roku 3 basically same as above, with a new search interface, now supports up to 1080p HD……AND can plug supplied ear-buds into remote to listen with out disturbing spouse etc. Or kids could use while they were playing game or watching children movies without disturbing Mom/Dad. You no longer have to “point” the remote at the unit either, as it uses the WiFi to control the unit, not a infrared beam.
Join the cable revolution, and only pay for what you want to watch! We are saving over $1600 a year to watch and pay for the channels we want! Up to 750 channels to choose from! Works on all TV’s with a HDMI port and WiFi in home. So now we are moving the older one to the bedroom
The Dynaflex Platinum Powerball was one of my first things that I saw for the office to “fiddle” with. A couple of people at work have them, and they are very popular to test drive. It has 40 pounds of resistance, and helps your grip and wrist, after you have been typing awhile. It’s fun to try to keep it going and make the lights stay on. After a long day of typing I can thoroughly recommend it.
The other one I’ve seen at my new work appears to be a bit better constructed and balanced. Either way they are both FUN, and do help CTS or just relieve typing stress or cramps.
