It's not a bug, it's a feature

My mouse wheel seems to be on the blink. Instead of scrolling up when I, erm, scroll the wheel up, it will do something entirely random, depending on the program I am using at the time.

In Firefox (2.0b), it scrolls the tabs I have open. In Visual Studio, it used to scroll the tabs I have open; now it randomly opens a tab I closed about 30 minutes ago. In Internet Exploder, a piece of toast comes out of the floppy drive, and canaries tweet as they take flight from the ejected DVD tray.

On the plus side, Smail now seems to be working at an acceptable speed. I wonder what the problem (that wasn't there, apparently) was.

It's actually good to be back at work. The benefit of having a job you enjoy, I guess.

  1. Comment about toast and canaries made me giggle out loud. Julie, who I work with, would probably be worried if she didn't come to expect such random outbursts from me on a daily basis anyway.

    How's you my darling? Haven't seen you in aaaaaaaaaaages. You Stratford–ing (officially a new verb) on Sunday?

  2. Hey you

    I'm glad I'm keeping you on target for your giggle quota :)

    I'm not too bad – back in Cambridge, and unfortunately am not Stratford–ing (love it :) due to lack of money. Money = petrol, lack of petrol = me not driving very far. :(
