    They say a easy excersise for your eyes is reading now if you read a book then you'll get your eye excersise but what about when you read text off a screen or that palm pilot thingy?

    It's not a problem with the new Palm Pilots or PocketPCs. The some PDA readers even allows you to change font and/or font size.

    I agree with you,i can't get to grips with reading from a screen.

    You exercise your eyes every time you open them. But reading a paper page is a lot less damaging to the retina than staring for hours at a flickering screen. LCD screens might be better, but at the end of the day it's still artificial light.

    its just nicer to hold the book in front of you and your eyes feel better.

    I am no doubt on the computer enough as it is. Reading from a book is a break
    from many things for me. I&#39;m a "lounge around" reader, on a couch or bed
    with plenty of munchies and drink. And to think all this time I&#39;ve been doing
    optical calisthenics while I read. No wonder it sometimes makes me sleepy.

    These forums aren&#39;t the fastest ones on the Internet.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t
