Ergonomic chair setup... but for knee issues, not back

I have found I am hastening the deterioration of an already gimpy knee by virtue of my office chair sitting habits. I tend to perch or sit with my legs tucked under me. Or I cross my legs to the point where it looks like limb braiding. I'm trying to decide if I want to move to something like a yoga ball to sit on, start using some kind of footstool, or something else. [more inside]

Does your laptop resemble the laptop I'm trying to buy?

I'm looking to buy a laptop that meets a few simple requirements. Does this describe your machine?
  1. Customizable before purchase -- it's essential to me that the factory install e.g. the SSD and the CPU that I specify
  2. 17" screen
  3. Trackpad is responsive, ergonomic, satisfying to use
  4. "Home", "End", "PgDn", "PgUp" and "Delete" keys are all clustered together, not strung out in a row
  5. High-end
  6. Not made by HP

Help me not hate my new Aeron chair

Due to long-standing back/shoulder/neck pain, I received an Aeron chair at work a couple of months ago. It has helped in one way (namely, the armrests can be adjusted lower than any other chair I've had, which has helped my shoulders) but otherwise has completely aggravated my lower and mid-back pain. Help me figure out a hack so that I can actually sit at my desk for longer than 10 minutes at a time without going nuts. [more inside]

and when you're only 23 it's not attractive to complain about your sore back

I have pain in my neck/shoulder. It's partially from computer use but becomes most intense when I draw. I need advice on better ergonomic setups as well as safe exercises I could do to strengthen those muscles, or anything else I might do to reduce this sort of pain. [more inside]

Should I try a back saver handle or just break down and get an ergonomic snow shovel?

Have you ever tried one of these: #1 or #2. Did you like it? Hate it? And if so, why? I can't afford a good ergonomic snow shovel and thought one of these might do in a pinch. Is there another model you liked better? Did it matter if the handle was perpendicular to the shaft like #1 or parallel like #2?

Laptop Ergonomics without a Chair

I need to find an ergonomic solution to allow me to work for 8+ hours a day writing code on my laptop. My options are extremely limited because of space - I essentially am stuck siting on the floor or on a couch. A desk + office chair would be nice but it isn't in the cards, neither is a table. Imagine a prison cell with carpet and you'll understand. [more inside]

Does anyone remember a spherical cubicle?

I saw a website or read an article about an ergonomic "cubicle" that was actually a very large, balanced sphere. The person would lie down inside the sphere in a perfectly supporting "chair" (somewhat like a first-class recliner), facing upwards; the keyboard was at lap level, and the monitor hung from the top of the sphere. Now I can't find it. Help?
