I was just curious. I gave up computer work completely, not just ROM hacking, but any kind of programming, game development, and design. I got really bad eye-strain, but it is more than that.
I believe, although I can't say for certain, that the computer can actually mess up your brain. No joke. I "feel" differently as a result of my strong focus on the computer. And I have heard that the computer can mess you up quite a bit.
It just drives me nuts that I have to give up stuff that I enjoy, but my health is more important to me.
I'm going to see an eye doctor next week, and maybe I'll see a neurologist.
Mind you that when I was hacking, I also used a screen filter, which stops the glare, and protects your privacy.
So, how many hours a day do you hack? And if so, how many in one sitting?
All I ask is that you guys be careful, and take care of yourselves. It is so easy to sit there for hours and just hack and program. I'd say no more than an hour or two at time, every 4-6 hours.
