laser mouse sucks on woodgrain

#1
i got a new computer desk, and its woodgrain makes the sensor in my mouse go crazy and it sends the mouse different places on the screen other than intended.

any around the house products i can use until i can get a lazer mouse mad??

that was pretty great. i like those (obviously scripted) idiotic type people. A+!

ps: i ended up just folding a piece of printer paper in half, and taping it down. now i can doodle using my customizable laser mouse pad!

here comes the science bit.........:)

your optical mouse is a camera so to speak and looks for bumps in the surface it lays on to navigate about and i suppose woodgrain disrupts it cuz its in lines

anyway dont use mice they carry diseases:D

If you read the manual it would have said something along the lines of: "Don't use mouse of shiny, grainy or similiar surfaces. use a white piece of paper." (White for obvious reasons).

:rolleyes:
