Yesterday I lost my keyboard with the scrollball because the scrolling wheel broke. Now I have to use the mouse and the keyboard that came with the PC. I can tell you, that this is very painful and clumsy. I have to constantly move my hands around and it is very unprecise to operate with the mouse. I can't wait to get my keyboard back - in fact I am going to get this new one with an optical scrollball too. That ought to be even better. I can only urge everybody to scrap the mouse and go scrollball. http://cgi.ebay.pl/Keysonic-AC.....otohosting -- That is living!!

I might have to get one of those. I know what you mean, mice can be a pain.
I think I need to call a exterminator. :)

Bartman, at least your place looks neat. Look at this cable mess in my place.

It is more ECO to have it that way, than have it all on wireless :)

So it's an eco-mess. Takes some getting used to. Like with the eco-food.

It's either that. Or drill holes in your desk (directly behind each piece of kit).

LH, you may notice that I already have holes in the desk - look next to the speakers. Even nice ones with chrome rings. And under the desk I have a metal basket hanging down that accomodates most of the mess.

@whs; I did like LH said, drilled some holes.
@ LH; They're a little camera shy, I think.
