Re: More Mice Madness

i have never had an issue with logitech, i have used many logitech mice and all are still working, the mouse will wear out long before it stops working. i currently have the g500, that one looks like a good general task mouse that would double up for gaming if needed but not as a main purpose.

While that may be true, I have never had an issue with viruses. I have the free version of AVG downloanded on my computer and I ha...

This is hilarious. Are you seriously saying changing config files is somehow easier than typing your name and address? Really?

I've found that using linux takes a bit more time to twerk to your needs. In several ways it's just like OS X, but it's more geeky and you'll be spending more time in technical things.

It *will* be useful to know java later on, it's just not something to learn and throw away afterwards. My other picks would be C/C++/PHP. I can hardly think of an...
