Interested to read recent discussion on 'meece' (I love that). I have to run both a wireless and wired mouse side by side since one started to scroll only down and the other only up! Seemed to work for about 6 months but is a two-handed pain. Now the pointer is desperately trying to escape from the corners of the screen (both mice as if chased by a rat!) seemingly randomly - usually about once every 5 minutes then comes back under control with a bit of aggressive mouse handling. Is this connected with the freezing problems experienced and written about in the forum?

"oh if mice were meece, and houses were heece,
there'd be no confusion with louses and leece".
But I digress. I've given up on Apple-specific meece with their tracking problems, and use PC units. Cheap, nasty, call them anything you like, but they darned well work, and work well, with no fuss, and no drivers required under OS X (Panther and later). Pop down to your local PC store, buy a generic USB optical mouse, and try it.
