Out of the Blue

After suffering for a while with flaky behavior from my computer I assumed was a driver issue or some other bug, I came to the realization today that my mouse was in the process of dying. I sheepishly admit that this should have been the first conclusion I drew when I started experiencing oddities when dragging and dropping items and highlighting text, as I should have immediately focused on the element in the equation with moving parts. That, of course, was the desk rodent, but it was only when it started registering single-clicks as double-clicks did it sink in (ah, you thought I was going to say click, didn't you?) that it was the mouse itself acting up. I dug up a semi-generic mouse to use as a stop-gap before I find a long-term replacement, at least something that fits my hand better.
