08/15/07 | by Adam | Categories: Technology, Whining
I'm currently using an inexpensive Belkin USB optical mouse (F8E814-BLK-OPT.) It has a very annoying habit of sometimes randomly placing the pointer on screen when moved. As I'm using a four-headed workstation this means the arrow could be pretty much… more »
 

The Saga of Bob
