(hope I picked the right category for this subject)

Do you sometimes (hopefully not all the time) suffer RSI?
I did, after a particularily heavy job, mouse-click wise. Somebody recommend working with a tablet. I started using a WACOM bamboo tablet and now I can work endlesly with the mouse, which is now a pen, and experience no discomfort at all, It is good prevention too I think. Don't know if there are other tablet brands available on the market. It is a relieve anyway.
Just thought posting this might be a good tip for any possible RSI sufferers out there.

Tablet for me too Sep 21, 2008

I have been using a Wacomm tablet for 4 years and it is a really useful tool.
Last year I changed it to a Bamboo model, because the old one was gone due to wear.
Wise choice to change the mouse to a tablet: I definitely recommend it.
