Due to some rather strange pains in my back (probably muscle-related, I hope the doc will find out tomorrow), I am somewhat chained to my bed. With my action radius being limited significantly, I am doing what seems popular: I decided to give an update about my personal situation. To sum up 2007, it was a fairly nice but also stressful year, with a lot of changes in my private life, both positive and rather sad (which don’t belong here, drop me a mail if you care).
It also saw the release of the english, slightly updated version of my book on Qt 4 and held an awesome study-related internship at the coolest toolkit-vendor ever. I hope this explains why I remained so silent on the blog and (even worse) on the KDE commit list. I kept active in the background however, keeping TechBase running along with Dominik and setting up other MediaWiki-based websites for KDE.
As for 2008, there is a lot of things I want to do. I won’t bother you with all of them, just the very basic ones:
- Finish studies (finally :))
- Get more involved in KDE development again
- Enjoy real-life even more than last year*
So, to all my friends, readers and KDE-enthusiasts i wish
A happy new 2008!
*(well actually, that looks like bad resolution at first sight, since 1 and 2 conflict with 3, but after all it’s all about the right balance, right?)
Typical question, how many times in week you rehabilitate your back? (No dont answer but ask it byself)
And normal chair isn’t any good for back, none of office chairs is good. Not even chairs where you sit like your knees.
Only _one_ chair is good enough for backs and it is Salli, http://www.salli.com/site/index.php?page=46&lang=EN
It is expensive but it’s garanteed to have no back pains etc after you take that chair in use.
I have few of those and none other chair cannot fix sitting as Salli because they try to fix problem by forcing body to form what is not natural.
If you dont trust, ask any of horse riders how much their back is hurt when they ride 😉 (Even cowboys could sit on horse many hours a day without a pain!).
Most bad thing is that table is too low on most of office users. Table should be bretty hi to have good position and many of office chairs/tables dont even allow so high adjustment.
Wish you a very happy new year 🙂
