Default Still cold hands?

I just stumbled over these (searching for something else, of course): gloves specially for computer/laptop, with heating powered by USB!

What a neat idea.

i could see me leaping up to attend to a beeping timer in the kitchen, however, and dragging my monitor off the edge of the desk.

LOL! Your monitor would not appreciate that.

Well, I finally took a pair of Thor-Lo socks with holes in the toes, snipped a tiny opening in each heel for my thumbs and removed the toes ... just cut far enough to allow my fingers to type without interference ... presto! Office typing mittens. By the time they unravel I will probably have another pair of holey socks with which to make replacements. I already have a singleton waiting in the wings.

Note to self: no need to cut much toe off. Easy to fold back as far as necessary. These are quite warm ... I've just had to take them off for awhile!

I think I would rather have USB foot warmers. My hands are rarely a problem, but my feet are often a bit chilly, at least for half the year....

How about a cat then?

Much more useful for warming toes than fingers, especially when you're typing.

In my experience, cats aren't very good at spelling when typing.

Is is also very difficult to type through a cat lying across the keyboard.

It shouldn't be to hard to teach a cat to lie across the monitor instead: much warmer!

They have trouble balancing on them.

We have only LCD monitors or laptops. ;-)
