    What kind of chair do you have to stop yourself totally wrecking your back? My sport doctor told me 8 hours of sitting down in a day is crazy, my hamstrings will get rock hard and my lower back will take a beating...

    when i go to school i dont get much time, and until last week i did not get home to 6-7 sometimes even 8 at night, even then i was on about 2-3 hrs

    now i'd be getting home at 4 so i'll be spending about 4-5 hrs


    on weekends, WAY TOO much, today i did nothing other then site and my iBook and take a shower. Today i was on about 10hrs

    While I've been on holidays about 4-8 hours on average. When I start at uni next week I expect this to go down a little (very little).

    Only 0-4 hours a day, unless I have a freelance project going and then that number jumps to about 12-14. ;)

    Well, I may as well since I'm on it administering patches every few hours. It's an attention-seeking little bastard. :p

    Ha, nice one. Where's Lacero?

    Perhaps clayj is also a little mad, has two personalities and one spends 24 hours on the mac whilst the other only appears for 37 minutes... It's the only logical explanation.

    its funny ... at my work its filled with aeron's (theres a section of the grant that simply pays for aesthetics and stylish furniture) and all the styling is herman miller ... and people still complain about the chairs and find them immensly uncomfortable. I dont' really understand how with all the customization and to be honest i'll suggest they're just crazy.

    ummmm... well theres the fake Aerons, but those are bad. But your talking to the man thats sitting on an old wood chair so I cant really talk. Best option is to get a used Aeron from ebay.

    Ok, well your still going to have to pay like $400 for one off ebay so maybe not.
