somber

Eeeek, my mouse.


I think my ancient Compaq mouse with the middle scrollbutton is shot. There's a dark, burnt-looking worn area on its cord. As for the mouse itself, I cleaned it out, and I cleaned the ball, and the cursor is still damn erratic.
Drives me nuts.

So, I hooked up the Dell mouse that came with the keypad Katie included with the tower she gave me. Works great ~ but I never realized how constantly I used that scrollbutton. Now I just keep hesitating with my middle finger trying to scroll or click.
Drives me nuts.

I sooo want an optical mouse someday.


p.s. ~ Which brings to mind the old urban legend...
