I have a deskless computer, which means that the keyboard is wireless and the monitor is mounted on a TV stand. As a result, I can use my computer from anywhere in the room; my computer desk, my regular desk in the other corner, etc.

I never could find a cordless trackball, though, so I had to use a regular trackball on an extension. Until yesterday, that is, when I found and bought a cordless trackball at Circuit City.

The trackball is fine, except for the fact that it’s unusable when it’s omre than, oh, two feet from the receiver. I’ll have to fiddle with it to see if I can get it work better, because that’s ridiculous. But I saw this in the user’s manual, and had to chuckle:

See the User’s Guide Installed on Your Hard Drive!

For PCs

  • From the Windows Taskbar, select Start, Programs, Logitech, MouseWare, then User’s Guide.
  • The User’s Guide displays automatically.

Ummmmm…exactly how is that “automatic”?
