  • Posted to Suffering from RSI, looking for advice., Jul 26, 2018

    Hi there - this is most definitely me. I started getting pain 2-3 years ago. It got the point where I experimented with wrist braces and kinesio tape on my wrists.

    What works for me today -- almost never use laptop on its own. Pain comes back pretty instantly when using the trackpad and frequently moving hand from keyboard to trackpad in that confined space. When on a desktop with monitor (also don't like looking down at laptop - unrelated but hurts my neck after a short while) I have a regular mouse (a good sized Logitech MX Master https://amzn.to/2Ls5151) and then I have a vertical Evoluent mouse (like this but there are other vertical mice, like anker has one i think https://amzn.to/2OlXmTt ) so when I get pain I switch to the other mouse and that provides some relief. My RSI is mainly in my right wrist though.

    I also do some basic stretches and weights here and there but think the biggest thing that has helped - using my phone less at night. I can instantly feel it the next day if I was up late on my phone for hours the night before.

    I experimented with using a wacom tablet and didn't see a change in anything.

    I'd suggest removing or adjusting the page transition to be faster or less involved (not a full page movement). I felt like I was waiting on the animation when browsing around. Or do something like use localStorage to track if I've been on the page before and skip the animation. For example - even doing it when I click back in my browser is a bit much.

  • Posted to What backpack are you rocking?, Jul 18, 2018

    Peak Design Everyday backpack (20L) in black. Rigid, waterproof exterior is good for when my mile+ walks to work in SF get a bit rainy. And of course on the weekends I put the internal dividers in, put my camera and some lenses in there, strap on my tripod to the external straps and am ready to go for a shoot outdoors.

    I have a few others for travel (small daypack, larger goruck for clothes, etc) that I mention here https://paulstamatiou.com/photos/gear/#bags but the Peak bag gets the most use.

    Seems somewhat similar to xScope which I've been found indispensable as part of my daily workflow for almost a decade now. https://xscopeapp.com/

    Especially the photosets haha. Took way too many weekends and numerous redesigns :) My last photo project (the 9 new zealand photosets) I spent about a year of spare time here and there including design/dev, though most of that was actual photo/video editing/culling etc.

    The only off the shelf component was the full-screen media viewer that I modified a tiny bit: http://photoswipe.com/

    Thanks! Site is based using the jekyll static site generator and hosted on S3/Cloudfront but the theme itself is all custom design/dev myself over the last few years.

    Reminds me of TrueBill (https://www.truebill.com/). Do you also add your credit cards so it automatically adds and identify recurring subscriptions and monitor price changes?
