My computer harmed me once when I dropped my moniter on my foot.
Alternate realities celebrate reality. If you cant handle the reality your in, then you wont be able to handle the one your attempting to escape to.

What you described isn't really the computer harming us, rather ourselves letting our posture go. Same could be said about sitting in front of the tv, waiting in a dental office or in a meeting.
Now if you really want to talk about computers harming us, talk about the radiation from the monitors, electrical shocks from the power supply, the CD shards from an exploded CD in a drive, the scratchy sounds from bad audio files, the electrical shocks from headsets/speakers, hot melted plastic from bad motherboards..... get the idea?
Thanks for the FYI anywho

interesting, 3 of my postures were wrong: my monitor is too high, my wrists aren't level and I hold my mouse wrong. Eh, nobody's perfect!

RSI is a big problem in the computing world. I am sure i have a mild version of it in my Y finger (too much use of left side of keyboard :P) Make sure your postures right and possibly invest in a ergonomic keyboard. They work wonders
