Sorry I haven’t posted for a few days. I’ve had a bit of a typing problem.
A while ago I wrote about how I had a pain in my right hand which made holding the mouse very difficult. We all had great, ribald fun at my expense (expressions like “holding the mouse” would have attracted particular hilarity), the pain subsided, we all moved on.
My hand has come back to bite me in the arse. That sentence makes no sense whatsoever, but I don’t care.
Somehow I’ve hurt muscles in my shoulder (anyone who thinks that’s from something like windsurfing, bungee jumping or bursting through a door like a cop doesn’t know me very well) and the pain is spreading down my arm and, again, into my right hand. I apply Diclac (Voltarol for poor people) as often as I can, but it only lasts for so long.
Since Tinman’s Typing Technique (Patent Pending) involves using just one finger on each hand this has cut my typing speed by 50 per cent, and since I wasn’t a 70 wpm man in the first place this post couldn’t have been done any more slowly if I’d chipped it onto a stone tablet.
The pain is slightly better this morning, though, so hopefully normal service will resume soon.
