New Mouse

I purchased a mouse for my laptop today. It's a wireless, and in today's vernacular, that word is now "bluetooth". Good luck future anthropologists and linguists. I brought home my new mouse. I unpacked it from its Fort Knox of cardboard and industrial strength plastic...but that's another post. I clicked on my "seeking bluetooth devices" and got it all arranged...after it told me to "insert the batteries, you moron", tho not in that nice a way. I finally got it hooked up and I noticed it was acting strangely. Weird...when I move left, the cursor goes right, when I go up, the cursor goes down...It wasn't at all like my "traditional" mouse in my non-Mac days. Hmmmm, this would take some getting used to...but, whatev, I'm used to "getting used" to things...*sigh*...so I used it a bit...it felt funny too...Man! I thought MacBook was supposed to be the warm and fuzzy computer...this isn't right...no way...and then I looked at it...yea...it was upside down...

Humbling moment...I'm rethinking grad school....

As I was reading your post I was thinking. .ha! She had it upside down! I wonder if she ever figured it out!
Glad you did.
And, if it makes you feel better. .. I did the same thing today with my TV remote. . . couldn't figure why fast forwarding through the commercials wasn't working! Mae recommended I turn it around. Glad I have her.

I'm glad you have her also....for so many reasons, not the least of which are technical ones...she'll also be able to show us cool dance moves and new mantras....
