Default Pat - sadly, I must give up Super Collapse :(

Well, I got totally into it, and even though I wasn't playing for hours
on end (maybe 2-3 games per day, at 10-15 mins per game), I am well on
my way to developing an RSI from all that clicking. Today I'm icing my
arm and doing mouse operations with the other hand, because a tendon in
my forearm is hurting.

I need my hands for my job. (It would be nice to have them for other
things, too.) So I can't risk getting a permanent injury. I really have
to stop playing. Bubbels doesn't give me that kind of trouble because
I can play it as slowly as I like. It's all the furious mouse-clicking
that got me.

Damn, and I never finished level 9, either!

What sort of mouse have you been using? Mine is optical (Micro brand, about
$10 from Walmart) and I haven't had any problems with my hand, wrist or arm
using it - although my index finger gets tired sometimes!

My old optical mouse is easy on the hands. But I've got a new vice.
Our satellite TV offers a game channel where there are numerous games
like free cell and Sudoku you can play using your remote control. Got
a blister on the inside of my index finger from overuse of the remote.
