DONE: Mouse distance travelled
« on: October 16, 2006, 09:12:17 AM »
How about a little routine that would tell you how far your mouse has travelled?  I've always wondered just how far that little pointer moves in a day.  Also, including the number of keystrokes would be interesting, but not as much as the mouse distance.

It would be nice to be able to enter a monitor size and resolution to get a true distance travelled, but otherwise, just report in pixels.

not only that but app103, one of the members here, created a donationcoder team at whatpulse.org, so you might want to check that out: http://whatpulse.org/stats/teams/10466/

Thanks for pointing it out, that what I was thinking of.

Seems strange that this would be an application that requires updating to a server.  Makes me a little cautious about anything that is tracking my every key stroke and sending reports out.  I understand that isn't what the program does, but still a little scary for the security minded people.

Thanks!

Found one for just mouse distance here:

Although, it seems less important to track after I noticed that I got my mouse turned up so high that 1" of travel brings me across 2 19" screens.   ;D
