One of the things that's been bothering me is that the vast abundant 27" iMac screen before me has been low enough I tend to get scrunched down or hunched over when working on a project intently. So I tried raising it up on a wooden bridge I had in the other room—but whoah, too high, I could feel my neck creaking the other way. Then I saw an old busted Nikon slide scanner on the shelf. About 4 inches in the relevant direction...and indeed, with the iMac on it and my chair properly adjus
It's always fun to have the college experience without actually having to attend college.
