Give your Eyes a Break with the 20-20-20 Rule

If you spend a good part of your day using the computer, the 20-20-20 rule, that I recently learned recently from my doctor, might also help you relax your tired eyes.

Relax Eyes

The rule goes something like this.

The screen is bright and therefore, if you don’t blink your eyes as often as you should while working at the computer for long hours, you can have dry eyes sometimes even followed by redness.

To help you deal with this problem, the 20-20-20 rule suggest that after every 20 minutes, you (the computer user) should take a break for at least 20 seconds and look at objects that are 20 feet away from you.

Since it is nearly impossible for any computer users to remember that they have to take a break every 20 minutes, there are free software programs that can help you in your mission.

For instance, there’s a Windows utility called Eye Defender that sits in the system tray and, after a fixed interval, it will auto-run a visual training (see video below in full screen) for the eyes on your screen.

You are supposed to follow the pointer on the screen and this in turn should help relax your eyes.

WorkRave is another handy app that reminds you to take breaks at regular intervals to prevent computer related stress (including eyestrain).

Beautiful Examples of Transparent Screen Trick Photos

Two weeks ago we published a showcase of beautiful pinhole photography, and this weekend again we’ve got something unusual and creative to lift up your spirits and challenge your creativity. Illusions can be eye-catching and attractive and when you apply them to computer displays, the results can be quite interesting and deceptive.

Take transparent screen trick photos, for example. The idea is simple: you take a photo of your surroundings and set this photo as your desktop wallpaper. Once the display is positioned precisely, the transparent screen trick is achieved. Simple, but what can you do with this simple idea?

Below we present a short selection of some original transparent screen trick photos. The environments presented in these photos appear to have a completely transparent screen which creates an optical illusion. We also feature step-by-step-tutorials in the end of this post: and here you go — now you have something fun to do over the weekend!

Ways to Get Paid Around the World

The more clients I get, the more amazed I am at the way the world is shrinking as the internet grows. I have clients in the US, Australia, the UK, India, and right here in Canada, on the other coast and within my humble city.

I love freelancing, but it’s not something I would choose to do for free – despite what the clients think! I’ve had to explore some of the available ways to get paid, and I’d like to know how you handle this essential part of the business. How do you choose which way to receive payments online?

The options that I’ve found for receiving payments online:

Los paralelismos entre Wikileaks y Napster

Llego a través de esta buena reseña en Techdirt, “How the Pentagon’s reaction to Wikileaks is like the RIAA’s reaction to Napster“ a este gran artículo del New Yorker, “Chasing Wikileaks“, que resalta los claros paralelismos entre las reacciones que el gobierno y las autoridades militares de los Estados Unidos están mostrando frente al caso Wikileaks y las que en su momento desplegó la Recording Ass. of America (RIAA) frente a Napster.

El Pentágono está protagonizando una importante batalla legal centrada en perseguir la actividad y a sus responsables – ya hay desde opiniones que piden al gobierno el empleo de fuerzas militares para poner a Julian Assange delante de la justicia, hasta incluso peticiones de pena de muerte para el militar implicado en una de las filtraciones, Bradley Manning – sin tener en cuenta que en caso de caer Wikileaks, muchos otros sitios estarían dispuestos a tomar su relevo de manera prácticamente inmediata. Wikileaks no es el problema, es el síntoma.
