Shaun Boyd wrote an excellent article about the Top 10 Reasons it sucks to be a “computer guy”, and not only do I feel his article was worth sharing, but wanted to share my experiences with this as well. The link to his site is actually going through a mirrored cache, since his original site seems to be taken offline thanks to the Digg effect. My favorite bit from his article:
“Yup, that bone right there is cracked, almost in half, and that bone has two chip fractures. We’ll have to tape that finger to the one beside it as a split for the next three weeks, and you’ll need to keep ice on it for a few days to bring down the swelling…” Doc’s recommendation was a “tapebuddy”, or impromptu splint made by taping the ring finger of my right hand (the one I broke) to the middle finger of the same hand.
