I had to buy a mouse for my laptop, and this Microsoft mouse is what I got. Microsoft does actually seem to make decent mouses. It's a nice little mouse, takes one AA batter that supposedly lasts 6 months, has a little USB antenna that snaps into the base of the mouse for travel and which also turns off the laser when embedded.
First I managed to tolerate C#, and now I'm using a MS-spawned mouse. What's happening to me? What next, will I become a Microsoft MVP (r)(tm)(r) and start hanging pictures of Ballmer all over my living room?
Or maybe this shows that I'm open-minded and that my undying hatred of MS software isn't due to bias but is actually a valid and well-founded opinion based on the inferiority of the software itself. Phew.
In other non-news, I'm really trying to get my Gentoo box shipped out to me within the next week or two. I'm going through heavy withdrawal symptoms. Today I dropped into a terminal and tried to wget a file, only to realize that Windows Vista doesn't have such nice things as wget. Then I curled up into a fetal position under my desk and shook uncontrollably for a half hour.
