The Mouse Is Dead...

Long Live the Mouse!

To those of you that have voted in my poll... I thank you and your answers will be coming soon, to those of you that haven't GO DO IT RIGHT NOW.. or... or.. I'll make a sad face!


So last night I had a slight problem, well.. a major computing problem.

My mouse died. Computer mouse that is. Its been a long road for it (well.. only 4 years I guess) but it started flaking out a bit last month, just after I got back actually. It finally died completley on me last night.

As fullofwhispers and jazzy_belle can attest to how narked off I was getting having to navigate Windows using just the keyboard. Its doable, and once you get into the swing of it quite easy.. but not the fastest thing in the world.

Anyhow, even after some radical surgery by myself (or maybe especially after..) the mouse was still not working. So I resigned myself to getting a new mouse. These things aren't cheap. At least optical ones aren't.. and being a design nazi/graphics nerd/computer ponce I can't go back to a mouse ball.. urgh.. no.

Anyhow.. I eventually justified the expense by geting the nice and shiny Wireless InteliMouse Explorer for BlueTooth. This thing not only is pretty and accurate - it also comes with its own bluetooth reciever, so not only it can connect to my PC but any BlueTooth thing I may get in the future can too! Yes, yes.. its how I justify the fucking £70 the damn thing costs, so shaddup :P

Behold its Blueness..

As you can see it is purrdy, and has a glowing doohicky (the transeiver) with it. Goes quite well with my black monitor and purple keyboard I think.

What do you think?

Ahh yes I do indeed know him :)

Met him in person earlier this year when I was in the states. Pretty cool guy... even if he's deluded into thinking hes Dutch ;)

heh....I just found that he used to live not too far from my hometown. I found him because he's friends with another lj friend of mine and he likes the band Remy Zero. I've been chatting back and forth through lj message posting, but it's all cool.

Remy Zero are pretty cool.

Admitedly I've only heard the song they did for Smallville, but that was v.cool.

Their lead singer looks a bit like Billy Corgan crossed with Spider Jerulsalem!
