Now I know I use the fingertip grip, after some googling ; ). I've been using the same Microsoft OEM basic mouse since it first came out, when I replaced the old ball mouse I had. Mouses bigger than these Microsoft ones seem very clumsy. I'm leaning towards another Microsoft mouse (this one has sur...

Finished my desktop build today, super happy with it! Also made an improvised laptop stand out of a cardboard box I had laying around, turned out to be the best stand I've used. Features a cable hideout :)

I've been sitting in front of the computer like some Quasimodo look-alike for the entirety of my early teen years, up to around the age of ~22, being half way to 26 years old right now.

Being centered with the monitor is largely irrelevent for me. I have dual 24" monitors at work and so being "centered" is pretty meaningless. Once you get used to not caring where the center of two monitors are, you soon stop caring where the center of one monitor is (my home setup). An inch off of...

I do have my grievances with the mouse but it's still the only pointing device that gets the job done in a versatile and precise manner. On my linux machine I barely touch the mouse and it's an amazing experience. But I have my OS X machine, a very mouse-dependent OS, certainly for graphics and some...

Here's why my full size ISO G-80-whatever Cherry board mostly sit in the closet. For me it's all about the balance between centered alpha keys and centered mouse on the mouse pad. The Poker board or the Wasd TKL gives me enough keys to get through my computing needs. Why would I use a board that for...

It's a great mouse. Had one years back, huge portions of coating were gone. Before that I had the quite odd MX310 model with the back and forward buttons placed on the left and right side of the mouse, ouuff (otherwise great).

If you are lucky there could be one still in stock somewhere. Hm, can't seem to find any full 60% ISO Swe PBT keysets :P 60% is a subset of full-size. Most new...
