Wireless mice are good for traveling, bad for home/office.
I've got wireless mouse & KB here at the office and haven't had a stuttering/latency issue since getting this setup years ago, which is why I'm considering going this route at home once one of them dies. *shrug*

Re: Observations of the Random sort

Oddly, I still use a connected mouse & KB on my home computer. Mainly because they're still working. I suspect once either of them dies, I'll go wireless for both.

Re: Observations of the Random sort

I'll grant more expensive in the short term, since you need to buy the charger and enough batteries to keep in rotation. Long term? I don't know. I haven't bought AA batteries in something like 4 years. The remotes, XBox controllers, and smoke alarms are all in use, and when they die, I take that te...

Re: Petty annoyances

A game which I helped Kickstart this past year was shipped to me and delivered in October. Since it is a gift for my wife, I hid it. Now, I can’t find it.

The volatility in particular has presented arbitrage opportunities as prices have differed significantly from one exchange to the other.

Re: Private Money!

I'm feeling generous so I'll throw you losers a bone. The vertical price chart might be in part due to inability to get coins to the market. Cash gets to the market the old fashioned way. But BTCs are sent via the blockchain that has a fixed volume it can handle and it's maxed out. I myself have so...

In all fairness, it does sound like a lot of these delis are the kind that basically sell beer and not much else. But still, criticizing the businesses and their bulletproof barriers is attacking the symptom, not the disease. From what I've read, the majority of their business is indeed beer and ot...

Going to some friend's for dinner, so bringing a random bottle of wine and a home-made apple pie. Not really looking forward to anything except my pie becasue the woman isn't that great of a cook. The mashed will be OK. Everything else is usually terribly over-cooked. And you can't hide it with grav...
