I've been contemplating doing this for a while, but I was inspired by Jeff's weight-loss success. As such, I'm going to try to lose my ass at online poker.
I've set up the exercise bike in front of the new TV, and hooked one of the spare PCs up on it. I got a Logitech cordless rumblepad to control the games. This is the cordless version of what I use for playing poker on my desktop computer-- I have macros set up to make it work well, and playing with it is now second nature.
Tonight I got everything in place and hopped on the bike for a test. I decided to do something brief just to make sure everything was OK-- in this case, a couple of orbits of two low-stakes ring games.
Results: it works. I need some sort of small waist-high side table for the keyboard and mouse and a glass of water, but that's a small optimization. I easily pedaled away for about 15 minutes without losing my focus on the games. Win!
