It's the Little Things

I've been slightly irked at my Mac for weeks now, and I finally realized what's been bothering me - the mouse. Awhile ago, I spilled coffee on the mouse. While it recovered, it didn't recover completely - it was missing clicks from time to time, and that just led to ongoing annoyance that I couldn't quite put my finger on.

It came to me last night playing Dragon Age (which I downloaded for the Mac over the weekend). While missing a mouse click while writing code or blogging is annoying, in game play, it just smacks you in the face. So this morning I ran out and bought a new mouse, and wow - I'm not annoyed at the machine anymore.

It's amazing how your state of mind can be affected by small stuff that you don't even consciously register.
