Sometimes it helps to just use your mouse upside down.. take a break and use a tablet pen etc..

I have a mouse pad with a gel wrist support. Also I have an extension to the computer desk to put the mouse closer to me so i dont have to stretch as far. Both have made a huge difference in comfort.

Take regular breaks from your computer - long ones - and exercise. Yes, run, bike, lift weights. If you don't, you'll regret it. The RSI will be the least of your problems.

Hi Barf.

I actually had a sore nose-picking finger. Seriusly. Using the mouse made my finger absolutely unbearable to use.

One thing I found to cure wrist-pain from the mouse is to put it on your lap. Sure I looked like a dork at work, but it was really comfortable.

Also, lifting yourself up (neck chin ups or whatever) really helps with nerd-posture.

And that excercising dude is right. Moving about helps heaps. And lastly (but quite drasticly) you can always try not using the computer. I know it sucks. You can't IRC like that. Thats why I got a PDA.
