i got a new mouse yesterday. logitech g3. its really hard to get used to, 2000dpi is too sensitive for me, i keep it at 800 lol. oh well, it was free (i got a bunch of circuit city gift cards in the mail for doing free trial offers with a visa gift card with $1 on it). i need a new mouse pad though, the lunesta one i have now slides everywhere since the rubber is almost completely gone.

i keep my old ms comfort mouse plugged in for browsing since its more comfortable lol.

Holy crap http://www.cnn.com/2009/US/01/12/florida.plane.crash/index.html?eref=rss_topstories

We were on standby last night after this guy issued his distress call...when he first issued his call, we were told he was being rerouted from Atlanta to land in Sylacauga, and to land there he would have had to fly over our coverage area so were waiting when they said he was being rerouted to Florida...now I know why

why would someone want to do that to a half million dollar plane... or any plane for that matter?

From what I saw on the news..he's wanted for fraud charges in Indiana, I figured he was running from the law and thought that plane would have crashed in the ocean rather that in a North-Florida swamp and he could have faked his own death...just didn't quite work out.

That's why there's a separate sensitivity adjustment. DPI isn't intended to be a sensitivity setting

What Cabbs said is right, DPI is the accuracy, the sensitivity bar is what you're looking for. My DPI is on 4000. There's a new mouse coming out with a 5600 DPI, it's too expensive but when it drops down it'll be mine.
