I'm also a programmer, as working in front of computer day and day, my
right hand is so tired and get some pain. So I tried to mouse in both
hands. I find that it is really an efficient way to release pains. At
first I switched the mouse buttons in windows control panel, but it
taken me several steps to finish it, and I can't flip the cursor, so I
made a utility. With it I can switch mouse buttons and flip the cursor
immediately by pressing a hotkey. I gave it a name: "Ambidexter Mouse",
do you want to have a try: www.ambidexter-mouse.com

(Some people asked me, "Why does it take an executable of 1.3 MByte
to draw two buttons and make one system call? I will say, I used the
SoftwarePassport www.siliconrealms.com to add a shell for my product)

Re: Have you ever considered of mousing ambidextrously?

I have a couple suggestions.

The first is, take this very seriously.  I kept being told by my
doctors that everything would be fine.  It was not!  Every time, it got

Second suggestion, read the book, "It's Not Carpal Tunnel Syndrome"
Don't just think about it.  Get a copy today.  It is under $20 and well
worth every penny.  If I found that book  years ago, I'd still be
programming today.

Finally, consider speech recognition.  It won't help with coding, but
it can minimize the other uses for your hands (such as email, Microsoft
Word, etc).

Thats my .02.
