    Your Mouse Pad

    Most of us use a mouse pad at our PC. Some of us have units at home and at the work place......multiple mouse pads.

    Like bumper stickers on a vehicle, the mouse pads we use may say a little bit about who we are, what we like, how we feel. Here's my pad line-up, past and present.....

    Previous
    Golden Retrievers
    Photo of Grandkids
    Denver Bronco's (Not mine.....Katie's)
    Tweetie

    Home & Work Now
    Beer Barrel Saloon (Put-In-Bay) (Home)
    Pittsburgh Steelers (Work)

    My Steelers' pad at the workplace has mysteriously disappeared a couple times. Too many Cleveland Browns' fans. It's back now, ratty edges and all.

    I may have to send for a new one. (Hold on.....see SPORTS SUPERSTITIONS Thread.....Steelers won the Super Bowl because of that particular mouse pad.....never mind.....no changes..... )

    Tell us about your mouse pads. What say you?

    No mouse pad at work.

    Home: has an image of a good friend given to me by said friend...


    BTW, both mouses (?) are wireless opticals.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Home - it's a bright orange circular pad with bubbles on the underside. I picked it up during my first trip to the UK in Bath, UK back in 2002. I've been using it ever since.

    Work one is what ZG said... at home we have a few... a standard Dell that came with the computer, a Toronto Maple Leafs mousepad given to me by Tranplanner (still awesome!) and I'm not sure what my step-daughter uses. It probably has Simple Plan or something on it though

    In the past I have had different ones that came as gifts, and once I bought some psychedelic purple 3m precision mousing surface, or some such nonsense... it was a really thin little mousepad, with no cushio to it, so it was almost seemless with your desk. It was awful if you are one of those people that eat crackers and stuff while at your comptuer, like I obviously am.

    Mine at home is a solid light grey with a large word "Apple" in a New Century, Times or schoolbook 'serif' font (I'm not sure which one).

    Home mousepad is a copy of an old, classic "Cycles Gladiator" poster a Berkeley vendor printed on a mousepad. The work one is so nondesript I don't even remember.

    Hoorday for another lost post.... My mouse pad is just plain blue... and i don't really need it since it's an optical mouse, but still I have it...

    In my uni we don't have mousepads... nor optical mouses... so the damned mouse balls are always stuck

    Work mouse pad is a circular, red & white thing with our company slogan on it. Whee.

    Home pad is a nature scene I picked up several years ago at the Monet on the Mediterranean exhibit at the museum. I love it, even though it's getting faded and a little ragged around the edges.

    No mouse pads for me. Optical mouse works just fine on the desk surface.

    No mouse pads at work- i dont know why, i dont have a lazer/optical mouse.

    No mouse pads at home- laptops dont need one.

    Although i saw this really cute mouse the other day, the was in the shape and colour of a lady bug, i really liked it!

    mouse pad at work is our own county CDBG promo. I really don't like it...and really don't need it since I have an optical mouse. Thanks for bringing to my attention...as now it is in the trash.

    At home... I use a laptop with integrated pad.

    work = a ratty blue one

    home = a ratty grey one from some company. When I got my new computer i shoul dhave tried for an optical mouse, but did not think of it at the time. It came with a really thin, unpadded thing that I did not like.
