Computer Workstation Ergonomics

Jeff Atwood, over at Coding Horror, has a useful summary of best practice when it comes to computer workstation ergonomics.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
