Out of the Blue

Some recent flaky behavior from my mouse has gotten worse, as the left button has gone from occasionally releasing in spite of being held down to frequently double-clicking on a single click. This Logitech G500 isn't that old, I dug around and see that I got it barely a year ago to replace another Logitech mouse which also started demonstrating flaky left-click behavior. I guess I have discovered their point of weakness, at least for someone who uses the mouse button a million times a day, though the amount of rodent abuse I tend to commit has me wondering whether or not I'm entitled to be disappointed at having to replace this so soon (my previous mouse lasted a few years). I love the action and ergonomics of this one, so I'll probably go for another and hope it survives better. I recall once having mouse drivers that recorded a history how far the mouse has been moved. It would be interesting to see the results if they still did that.
