Just curious to know, how many hrs per day each spends before computer and TV?? Is it not a big strain to eyes.. i feel so.. i spend about 10 hrs..



How do you guys fight it out..??? vitamin-A pills ??..

and i am thinking like if i am going to continue with IT for another 30 years,.. my eyes are gonna die .. someday..!!
what do all you people feel about this issue..?? love to hear others' opinions..

i know everybody here are smart people.. with smart ideas and opinions

funny... my eyes didn't start hurting until I read your post
(I spend 8 hours at a computer, and probably 30min~1hr watching tv.)

Jack, welcome to the 'Ranch. While I like a good drink as much as the next fella, one of our (few) rules @ the 'Ranch is that members use realisitic sounding names. Since your name makes we want to take the rest of the day off, please change it to comply with out policy.

Thanks,
M

Sorry guys, i did not mean to offend anybody..

i thought may be some here use something like special screen attached to the monitor or something like that..

maybe i have a problem, because i keep worrying that my eyes will pain, if i spend too much time before PC... and they do..
maybe because i kind of tuned my mind that way..

now, i guess it's time i teach my mind,.. not to worry much about the issue..

Take it easy guys

If it's eye strain you're worried about, make sure your monitor refresh rate is as high as possible for your given resolution, and consider dropping the res a notch if it will give you 75 or even 85Hz. Plasma screens are also supposed to significantly reduce eye strain. I was talking to an older gentleman once and his doctor recommended he move to plasma to protect his poor eyes.

Change your name or your account will be deleted. Ignoring warnings won't work since it's easier for us to delete accounts than try to keep chasing people.

This is probably your last warning.
thanks,
Dave.

What is the probability thath 'Jack Daniel' is his real name. It is possible that it is his adopted(new) name. In those cases it would be a injustice to remove his account

hey Kishore Dandu what ever the case...

Thanks buddy, you are my friend...

Firstly, my dad likes the drink, so......

and did any of you guys ever think, how it would be if your boss or technical lead or who-so-ever googles up your name and finds you asking (sometimes) silly questions... it is not good.. your boss looses confidence on your technical knowledge..

Just DO

Kishore Dandu site:saloon.javaranch.com in google, you will find 222 results,...

It's good if you are only replying to somebody's questions.. but otherwise,...


Take it easy guys..
