Mice have feet!
Now I don't think I treat my computer mouse particularly harshly, but somehow it'd managed to lose one of its little teflon feet a while back. Also the others were looking pretty ragged. Now obviously the aesthetics of the bottom of my mouse was a major concern to me, but also it was making the mouse itself a little unruly. Sort of a wonky shopping trolley style syndrome.

Fortunately, people who play computer games are nuts. And apparently so am I. Only this could explain why I spent ten quid (admittedly 4 on postage - companies who don't post cheap stuff via Royal Mail should be punished with sticks) on a set (well 5 sets - they don't come in smaller packs) of replacement feet for my mouse. It is now sliding across the table like a drunk on an ice-rink, but hopefully I shall get used to it soon.

The more observant among you will have noticed that I could have bought a new mouse for that price. But mine is a nice cordless one (I hate mice cords with a passion), so the economics isn't quite that silly.

I wonder if it'll make me suck less at computer games too. Somehow, I doubt it.

If you're interested I got them from http://www.everglide.co.uk/. Because they're for gamers, they have a Z in the name (Mouseglidez), but at least they don't have some stupid l33tsp3ak thing going on, or an endorsement from a professional waster gamer, or worse, both.

I don't think I'd ever click on a link called "everglide" from work. ;o)

That hadn't even occurred to me. Pervert. :)
