    Wow, thank you so much for the tall mouse reference. I ordered it right away.

    I have a DS (a birthday present from my little brother). It’s great. The games are awesome. Do IT!

    I bought my husband a DS lite for his birthday and I think I play it more than him! Darn you Animal Crossing!!

    Oh, RED DS!!!! I have a pink one. I want RED!!! I love my DS – Animal Crossing, and Picross especially.

    That tall mouse looks good, my wrist hurts from working. Hm.

    My husband wants a DS for Christmas…it’s going to take a few more back-rubs for that to appear!!

    My mister has that mouse. Two of them, actually, because he depends on it so much that he can’t do any work without one, so he has to have a backup. It’s been *really* helpful for his carpal tunnel.

    I had a joystick-shaped mouse back in college (around 99 or 2000) – now that I mouse eight hours a day my wrist wishes I could find another one. I might have to try that tall mouse.

    I think the tall mouse is a GREAT idea, thanks so much for sharing. For the moment, I switched the two buttons on my mouse, so that I use the right button as the main button and I use my middle finger to click. consequently—I have my hand resting on the side, sortof like you would if you were using the tall mouse. there is less strain on my wrist and I’m on the computer all day! AND it is free to switch the buttons…go into your control panel and look under hardware, and then mouse to find out how to do it…there you go!
