    How do you sit when you play? I usually have my forearms (sometimes elbows) resting on my computer desk, seems to help me out a lot as my smaller muscles aren't holding the weight of my arms, etc.

    When I'm at work typing too much I make sure I take breaks and stretch periodically to help with the cramping and muscle tightness.

    I use a keyboard with a lot of finger room (its one of the old school IBM 1980-1990 101 keyboards, it'll be able to buy alcohol in less than two years!!!, yes my keyboards turning 21 in 2011 woohoo!!) and a cheapo logitech easy to grab mouse.
