The Dying Mouse

The cursor stutters across the screen. I need to be precise, but my tools are failing me. The timeline is packed with clips, graphics and audio files. The computer lags for a moment. My hand slips across the mousepad. The edit is wrong.

Undo. Try again.

This is the third mouse I've killed since starting here at Sonlight.

And, no, I do not stick them on the glue boards by the entryway.

So, it's time for a new interface tool. I've put in my request for a tablet. Hopefully I'll get one shortly after the new year. That would be fantastic!

Any new tools on the horizon for you? (aside from the obvious, of course) New computer gadgets? Better kitchenware? New pencils? An electronic book reader?
