Twas worth the suggestion. I am weary of "trying" mice that cost me more than food at work for a month. However, I find it hugely annoying that my middle mouse doesn't accept clicks in WoW (I used to bind that one to Leap of Faith, shift click; rez etc... I have a set habit for bindings on all characters).

How many did you buy? I am curious now :P

It only cost me return postage to try, since I bought it on Amazon with free shipping. :P

But I agree that it is annoying having to order it, wait for it to arrive, try it out, be disappointed, and send it back. Also seems silly to spend $50-100 for a fancy gaming mouse when I really don't need any of their special features, they just happen to be the only ones that come in "ambidextrous shape with more than 2 buttons" models.

I bought 3. All were marked as "Like New" or "Very Good" from third-party sellers on Amazon. If they all work, that should keep me stocked up until mice are no longer a thing. The one I bought (new) in 2002 would probably still be just fine if I took it apart and cleaned out whatever is making one of the buttons sticky, but I'm not exactly sure how to take it apart (no screws or apparent snap-together points) so I haven't tried.

Mouse screws are often covered by their feet/glide pads.

Yes, this is almost always the case. I've had to fix and clean a lot of mice over the years. If in doubt, Google something like "disassemble intellimouse" to be sure.

The first one has arrived, and it is fully functional (and programmed in multiple techniques)... BEHOLD, THE GLORY OF THE INTELLIMOUSE!



(and it's so much less yellow from oxidation than my old one, too!)

Edit: Anyone want a Razer Taipan? I don't want any money for it, and will even mail it for free (within reason) but if you want to throw me a Cinder Kitten or the upcoming BABY SPACE GOAT OMG SO CUTE or something I wouldn't complain. Send me a PM!

If I didn't live in Belgium which makes it very bizarre shipping; I'd jump on it. And a Cinder Kitten can be gifted right?

Yes, it can, and I just looked up shipping rates to Belgium; it's about the same cost as a real money pokemon. PM me if you want to make a trade.

All I can say is, Jebus, from the little bit of your picture Phanx, I wish my desk was spic and span like that!

And I recognize that mouse, that was my first mouse and it was pretty goodly back in the days when I was playing counter strike.

I would recommend the Logitech MX Revolution as that was my favorate mouse but I do not believe it is in production anymore..but I miss the free wheel spin logitech has...

I had to dust it after looking at the picture... almost re-took the picture but decided not to bother. The rest of my house is pretty disorganized and frankly filthy in places, but my desk is actually important, dammit!

... and now, of course, it is a sacred temple to the glory of the Intellimouse once more.

I somehow figured that your desktop area was organized. Mine is a disaster.

Wow, that picture is like a time machine all the way back to 2005 or so. Not only is that a CRT, but it looks tiny... 17 inches? How do you even live?!

It will be even more organized when my ROBOT ARM ARRAY arrives, though I may need to reinforce/replace my cheap folding table excuse for a desk before I can install it.

Anyways. I am gonna shoot a mouse suggestion just for the hell of it. I gave into this mouse my co-worker told me about and bought it. FireGlider Optical... This mouse is simply amazing. No issues at all and fits the hand perfect. Two of my friends bought it as well and retired their Nagas for it.

My mouse: Gigabyte M6980x
I need something a little more ergonomic and slanted, and I like to rest my palm on the mouse. I could use something with a bit more of a slant, though... Would try this, but don't think I'd be able to slide in my keyboard tray with it.

The only picture I have of my desk right now is when I got my 27" monitor, and everything was cleared off it from cleaning. So... It's way messy right now, and I'm not about to take a picture of it for you.

Oh, I have the older version of that (no cable management or USB hub). They are awesome. Unfortunately, my temp desk will not support them.

I'm pretty sure mine won't either, and they'll end up sitting in the corner for 6 months until I finally get around to replacing my desk. I've been "setting up a home media server" for the last year... it's still not operational, but at least I finally got around to assembling all the components a couple weeks ago. A friend once told me the government should investigate how to weaponize my laziness. I think he was on to something. >_>

Also just noticed this and giggled at the last part... my first Intellimouse lasted 12 years (and is really still quite usable) so now that I have three more, I think I'm pretty much set on mice to last through the robot apocalypse.

Assuming they're not in on the apocalypse too.
