>Do you find that the heel of your hand (I think that's what it's called) drags on the desk when you use the mouse? That's my sensitive spot.

It depends on which computer I'm using, but generally yes. Hasn't caused me any problems as it has you though. I guess boys are just diff'rent. <g>

>>Today I found a big honkin' MS wireless mouse that is taller than most mice and from playing with it in the store it seems that it might keep my hand-heel off the desk. But I suspect I might have a problem with the angle, since it's so tall.

Might make your wrists hurt instead. Not a tradeoff I'd be willing to make.

>>I know what you mean. Last time my MS mouse got cruddy, I gave it to Mr. E and bought myself a new one. <LOL>

so kind ....

>>Do you ever get cat hair in the optical workings, where the red light is?

Occasionally, but Helen gets it all the time. One of the cats practically lives right next to her on the desk. They don't pay much attention to me when I'm working though.
