The hungry mouse
That shiny new cordless optical mouse has given somewhat patchy performance, mostly OK but sometimes playing sillybuggers.
This evening it gave up the ghost altogether. I thought at first it might’ve been the computer, so I rebooted: it worked for half an hour, then stopped again.
So I tried a fresh battery, and it worked. That’s a battery life of less than two and a half months, during which I’ve regularly turned it off at night. The dead battery is an AA-sized alkaline jobbie.
So much for going cordless. Methinks the next mouse’ll be summat more traditional. Bah, Humbug.
