*bounce* I just got an optical mouse! My normal mouse got soemthing stuck in the gears (i'm guessing) so that it would frequently get stuck at a certain point while i was trying to move the mouse to the left. I asked the IT guy for a screwdriver so i could take it apart and try to fix it, and he said that he'd just give me an optical mouse instead =)
And then the power went out. Not a typical california rolling blackout, just our office in this particular building. It's back up now (duh =) but i haven't heard what the problem was.
So i left to have lunch, which i will write more about later.
