    when i was programming and the mob came and packed me up in a full body sized chello-case and dropped me into the East River. That was quite an injury.

    I cut off the very tip of my left index finger builder a computer desk for my wife (does that count?). Freaking table saw just wanted the wood more than I did I guess.

    uhh.... one of those screen-sweeper things fell off my monitor and onto my hand. while programming.

    computers in general:
    i was taking apart an old tandy 1000 ex, which tried to squeeze everything together tight. i touched the power supply coil trying to pick it up.
    because i was too poor to afford a case, i put all my computer stuff on a table (actually, it was the old case, lay'd horizontally, close to the floor so i would kick it every so often.) i tried to switch a jumper and touched a few capasitors together with my screwdriver. didn't damage my motherboard (much).
    i've sliced my hand on circuit boards. not badly, though.

    I leant back on my chair to look at my code at a distance (I dunno why ) and I thought there was another chair behind me to hold onto, but there wasn't...CRACK!

    I kicked my desk and my huge 21" monitor [with boiling cup of coffee atop] fell on my lap.

    I was soldering a PCB, and knocked the soldering iron off the desk. Caught it without thinking. 10 years ago & you can still see the scar!

    (I know it's not programming, but it still bl**dy hurt!).

    yeah hardware sucks.

    especially the back of various cards [motherboards, graphics cards]
    you put your hand in and the little metal solder bumps rip the skin off it.
