Look After Your Eyes!
i went to the optician yesterday for an annual check up, i'm always a bit worried because i write code for most of the day and that's not very healthy for eyes etc etc.  i know you're supposed to take breaks every 15 mins or so but that's difficult to do in practice.
the test showed one of my eyes with a very slight deterioration which makes no difference really but still i found it quite alarming that i'm doing damage to my eyes, specially since you only get 2 for your whole life.  i dug out a program i wrote a few years ago to go 'ding' in the background every 10 minutes to remind you to take an eye break.  apparently relaxing your eyes on a distant object for a minute or two is a good idea etc.  i was going to post up my little exe file but then i went looking and found "TakeYourBreak" on download.com, it is a much better program!
