A scrub brush because the rubbery ball-chair material attracted dirt? Maybe TECHWR-L should sell ball-chair fuzzy-covers...

Subject: RE: Typing recommendations (was RE: keyboard recommendations? )
I tried that tilt, but found that my knees kept bashing the tilt/swing mechanism of the tray. This was an add-on that bolted under the desk, because the cube-standard trays were just too limited in their scope and range of motion.
Of course, during those days - I forgot to mention in my post - I spent about three years sitting on a 65cm exercise ball .... er... serially/continually, not continuously. :-)
That imposed different requirements on a keyboard tray.
It also required the use of pants that didn't show dirt... which is why I eventually gave up that sort of seating.
I do have to admit that it was kinda fun to be seen (frequently) going into the shower room with my ball-chair and a scrub brush. The looks on faces were priceless. SOMEtimes I would explain. Other times, I'd let 'em wonder.
