Scroll wheeeeeeeeeeeel

The scroll wheel on my IntelliMouse is clogged up with junk. I cleaned it out somewhat, but it still catches every page or so when scrolling downward (but not upward). Reminds me of the fun we had before optical mice, except I can't remove the scroll wheel to clean it.

Some kind of laptop-like trackpad with no moving parts in the middle of the mouse would be kinda cool. I hate trackpads as pointing devices, but as scrolling devices they're actually kinda neat.

Indeed.

Very cool. Now all they have to do is make one that's at least three times that size and with a cord (or maybe a rechargeable dock) in a shape that I like. However, they're Logitech, so I'll just have to keep dreaming.

I (Tracy) use the lowecase "ok" link Luke posted. I really like it. g

Hmmm. Well, it's good that those products exist. They look really uncomfortable, though. I'd have to try one out next time I'm in Office Depot or something.

Well, I'll be around if you would like to look at mine when you come visit.

I'm sure I'll be in your room plenty, assuming it's still located right in the center of the third floor and has couches and chairs and laundry facilities.
