All of your mothers wear combat boots. That is all.

[1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ...] on 1 to 20 kills

I'm to much into Diablo 3 and I'm so rusty that I'd be slaughtered in any D game. Also, my wrists can't handle more than 15 min at a time. :(

Didn't anybody [who wanted to slaughter you] ever tell you that Descent 3 is like riding a bike? ;)

Sorry to hear about your wrists. I hope you're doing some sort of exercises to address that.

I take frequent breaks. Sadly my job makes me use a computer all day so I can't get away from it.

Well, breaks are good for preventing a repetitive injury, but strengthening may help you to overcome an existing injury (barring just getting away from the repetitive stress altogether, which is what I unconsciously did many years back). That's why I said I hope you're exercising it--stretches, strengthening, and just general using your wrists in ways they are meant to be used for any significant period of time. Remember that our bodies are designed to strengthen with use, it's just when we use them in ways they weren't designed for that it causes problems (that's what repetitive stress is--holding or moving your wrists in unnatural positions for extended periods of time).

At home you can create for themselves a more comfortable environment than in an office, is not it?
My recipe from fatigue work or play on the computer:
spacious sofa with footrest + TV 46-55 inches + wireless keyboard and mouse with a large rug for her + good headphones and / or home theater.
I am sure that you will forget not only about problem with your wrists, but also fatigue in general :wink:

Dude, I'd stomp you 20-5 like last time ;)
You're lucky I don't have a d3able comp right now.
