Just so everyone knows.  I don’t know how you can screw up a mousepad, but I attempted to use a Microthin Wow!Pad mouse pad here at work with my optical mouse.  And it sucks.  It makes my mouse skip across the screen uncontrollably every couple minutes.  Very strange.

Needless to say, I’m not using it anymore.  Sorry Glen.  It was a nice thought, and it’s not your fault it sucks.
