For anyone who is still able to use their hands for typing, especially 
if you're beginning to encounter the painful wrists, consider switching 
to a Dvorak layout.  It was a system I was curious about even before I 
needed it, and when I did need it I was able to create the layout in 
assembler (now, of course, it's widely available as a standard keyboard 
layout).  I started noticing the pain in my late twenties (aggravated, 
I'm sure, by arthritis), but with switching to Dvorak the pain left and 
has only very rarely been noticable again.  It will mostly likely be a 
challenge to switch, but well worth it.
