Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Dying Mouse

Mine coincidentally is checking out also. I always like to buy the more expensive whatever it's the American way if its more expensive it has to be better.
Nice kid at Office Depot told me to get the cheap one its the same damn thing. Hell this lasted five years.

I've never worn out a right-click button before, only the left.

Laser or roller? The roller ones pick up lint and grime and can be pulled apart and cleaned. The laser one are expendable.

Logitech. The cheap one, around $10. They keep mousing, and mousing,...

Sometimes all you have to do is clean them and they come back to life.

I like a wireless mouse.

My favorite is the Microsoft Wireless Mouse 5000. It's ambidextrous, and being I'm left handed that's a plus. It has extra keys that you can program for special functions.

I got a "Tecknet" off eBay. Been working for years and was only $15 or so. No point getting an expensive mouse. They fail for the same reasons cheap ones do they just give you more buttons and higher laser resolution.

I programmed my extra buttons. I use the extra right button to open Firefox and the extra left button to go back from wherever you are at. And the center wheel can be used to enlarge a page or picture.

A Kensington Track Ball is nice if you are working with Photoshop.
