I was rooting around the archive here to test my recollection that today is some sort of gaming anniversary. Seems that memory was mistaken, but I did notice that 12 years ago I wrote about fighting a little pain in my hand and wrist. I mentioned two factors, a switch in mouse brands from Microsoft to Logitech and my use of the right mouse button as the move forward command in shooters. In reading this it struck me as a good illustration of what a creature of habit I am. The right mouse button thing came from the original DOOM or Wolfenstein 3D, so I was still using that over 10 years later. And while most gamers had long favored Logitech mice, I stuck with MS until some point in 2005. The good news is somewhere around that time I finally adjusted to properly using the "W" for forward in my WASD configuration, which eased my physical pain, and has made it easier to use games with a near default configuration. I also stuck with Logitech mice for almost the entire interim, but I recently switched to a Razer. We'll see if that ends up standing the test of time for me. I like the mouse, but I'm noticing a little squeak at times from the wheel, so it remains to be seen whether or not this results in a decade of brand loyalty.
