Re: Computer aggrivation


Jim, I've heard that some of the wireless mice aren't as accurate as
Logitech's.  I had one at my old job and loved it.  Rather than get one of
their lower end models, I got the one that has SRP of $60 (paid $16 on ebay)
In addition to wireless optical you can orogram a thumb botton and a scroll
button.  I made mine copy and paste.  You don't use a mousepad with this
mouse, it's fine on the desk - is supposed to work best on light colored
surfaces.
I believe the wireless mouse can piggyback onto your keyboard if you get the
same brand, rather than plug into the computer.

sent directly as well because hort.net seems to be having problems.
