Hey Arjami,

Thanks for the sincere reply :) Once I found a doc with a clue (occupational specialist), only took about a month before I had the tendonitis under control. But, the thoughts that ran through my head before I found him were scary---couldn't get out of my mind that I might never be able to type again! I've had an occasional flare-up, but always due to me not taking the recommended rest breaks. Though, at this point, I've had enough flare-ups to know my limits. I can't do marathon quake sessions, but I don't have to worry about losing my ability to type (at least not anytime soon).

I should not that it does take poor ergonomics and a *lot* of time at the keyboard to develop tendonitis. One summer in undergrad, I had a job as a programmer, and spent many of my evenings and weekends playing games or working on my own programming projects (almost certainly without a good ergo setup)...
