Everything by Nintendo is Unethical

I would recommend against getting a Wii and Wii Fit because Nintendo holds the freedom of their users in contempt. I recommend that you avoid these proprietary technologies until someone has taken the initiative to liberate them.

Free and open gaming

Free and open gaming consoles is a hard challenge to tackle. So much that I think it should belong on FSF's high prority.

But I am tackling this problem indirectly too, trying to build a business dedicated to writing only Free games. If we can do that, we can move to building game console technologies.

Good Health

It's not healthy to be stationary in front of the computer all day long. The tips outlined in this article have my approval. Practising all these things together will help manage those long hours in front of the computer.

I personally have an alarm that goes off every 40 minutes. When the alarm goes off, I do one set of 20 hindu push ups. This set takes me less than one minute to complete. This exercise is absolutely wonderful for any chair jockey to do as it exercises every major muscle group in your body; it renders the all the exercises in the article to be second rate.

The standard caution applies here: consult your physician and trainer before starting exercise regimes. The hindu push up exercise is *very physically demanding*. If you are not accustomed to this sort of activity, you should never push your body to do more than it will handle; it took me about two months of daily work to get from 5 hindu push ups per set to 20 hindu push ups per set.

Workrave missing

Whilst I thought the piece was very good, I was surprised not to see Workrave mentioned. Much more than just a timer, Workrave will prompt you through exercises very similar - if not identical - to the ones mentioned here.

Inspired by this piece I wrote one of my own at FSM on Workrave:
