Trust me. Once I switched to a wireless mouse, my computer started running so much faster.

That was most likely because the wireless mouse had a better driver.

I've been in IT for a while now and hadn't heard that one before. You also get a Schrute buck.

I've also got users who swear they've deleted almost all of their email, yet their mail file is 25 gb and they're inbox contains 14,000 emails. perception is a wonderful thing.

Try moving the box onto your desk so then the info doesn't have to travel upwards against the force of gravity too. J/K man

I think it has something to do with the wires... With a wireless mouse, the data doesn't have to travel through some long wire to the computer -- it just beams directly to the monitor. So much better.

Also, I moved my computer to my desk ages ago to avoid gravity interference. What do think I am, a noob?

Is anyone else thinking of Star Trek 4 when Scotty is talking to the Apple?

Hence why IT has to set email quotas in the first place...if you need the email that badly, archive it off the server.

Trust me, i know. Corp. policy precludes the individual site admins from doing this. Instead, we get a padded portion of our desk to bang our head's on...

You've got a lot bigger issues than your mouse if that's the case. Your new mouse you probably installed the software for and it automatically setup the response times for movement and clicking. It is impossible for a mouse to make a whole computer faster.
