would it be wrong

so, would it be wrong if I brought a MS intellimouse (scroll + ball) to work & swapped it with the usb optical intellimouse that is currently at my desk? ... I've been so tempted these past few days.


/me drools and looks covetously at optical mouse.

There are some things more important than an optical mouse. Do the right thing. Virtue is its own reward.

/me stops to clean the gunk out of his mouse rollers.

i was hoping that sentence would end something like this:

"but only a rare few..."

i guess it stays...
btw, I do have a certain fondness for the one i currently use (logitech wheel mouse).

just so long as you remember to bring it back in in the morning. and also, optical mice are not born equal (negative acceleration on cheap models)
