People on DC get around quite a bit and have been computing for a long time. I'm curious if anyone knows of a good source to get a free mousepad sent via snail mail? Seems like it used to be more common for these to be given out, but maybe I'm one of the few curmudgeons still using the old mechanical rubber ball mouse and everyone else is on optical.
Anyway, they come in handy. I just got one of those BlacX USB docking ports. It works great, but the vibration is a distraction. I sacrificed my backup mousepad. Sliced it to fit and put it under the base. That made me think it would be a good idea to have a few more pads hanging about for emergencies like that one! I sent a suggestion to Thermaltake to put some vibe dampening stuff on the base.. but I was surprised rummaging around that I could find a 1.2 MB 5 1/4" floppy with a yggdrasil linux beta, but not a mousepad(other than my plain gray backup pad that is.)
I know someplace I had a small wimpy OS/2 promotional mousepad around somewhere but I couldn't find the thing!
