Saying Goodbye to an old Friend

Where do I start? We met back in my sophomore year of college. I was looking to experience new things and happened across a new friend in the process. We worked well together and they lit up my life in ways no other had before. But today that long relationship that had survived numerous jobs, a cross country move and more than a few ups and downs came to an abrupt end.

My original Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer sits idle, having fallen ill lately with a bad case of Frozen Mouse Syndrome. In it’s place sits a sophisticated Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 2.0, which is wireless and features a horizontal scroll wheel. Not to mention a leather palm pad as well, which is nice. A part of me feels sad. Oh sure I’ve thought about leaving my old friend before, but I figured we would always make it through the tough times, but this time it was too much.

So today I say goodbye to an old friend and hello to a new one.

  1. As they say on NYPD Blue, “I’m sorry for your loss”. That’s odd Joe, I live my life tehtered to one computer or another, and I never quite got attached to any input devices. I go from a basic MS Wheel Mouse at work, to a Logitech blue curvy thing at home, to the trackpad on my Mac and instantly feel comfy with each one.

    Besides, a good joystick and MS Flight Simulator is all you really need!
