Out of the Blue

I benefited from some of our family raving about Skyfall over Thanksgiving, as it inspired MrsBlue to willingly go see it, in spite of her strong aversion to movie theaters. We caught a show with a very light audience yesterday, which was pleasant, though in a sign of the times we still had an audible cell phone ring when there were only a dozen patrons in the theater. In spite of having some of the plot holes and silly clue following that have been hallmarks of the whole Bond series, the movie was outstanding, and Sam Mendes deserves credit for realizing his vision of placing 007 in a more realistic Dark Knight-inspired setting.

Today is World Aids Day, and the World Aids Day Website has suggestions on how to mark the occasion along with a bunch of HIV facts and statistics.

Bonded Links: Thanks Ant and Acleacius.

A mouse is not something one should be changing with any regularity. Get one that will last and become accustomed to it until it is an extension of your arm. I had used an intellimouse optical for at least five years (and there was nothing wrong with it in the end, I just wanted to move on) before trying a Razer (bad idea) which was quickly replaced by the G5 I've been on for about five years.

Anyways the feel is the big thing. The G5 is infinitely more comfortable than cheapo plastic mice. The one-touch DPI setting is useful for sniping or other instances requiring finesse (like graphic design). Customizable weights is just gravy (I tried the G5 weightless for a while but I prefer a mouse with heft).

What he said.

Being able to change DPI from one weapon to another is priceless. I am currently using Razer Diamondbacks on all of my machines. I like the size, feel, weight, and the standard DPI is good for everything.
