Right, but plasmas are a bit thin on the ground where humans live and humans are the ones who call things things. There may be aliens who call plasmas and gasses things, but they probably have different words for them. "No Fnakquar, an antivacuum is called a 'congressman' " or some such.

If there is a vacuum in space, would their need to be a corresponding antivacuum?
There is an antivacuum in the universe . . . more specifically, in my apartment.
At least that is what my cleaning girl claims . . . when she tries to vacuum here . .
An antivacuum is usually called 'gas'.
I've done that. CeBit in Hanover. I didn't get to wear chaps though.
I was envisaging one of those black, spikey gaming mouses. I can see how that mouse might work well.
Sometimes brute force is preferred.
No, I don't.
TFA quotes the RSA test which states: "These guidelines are applicable to all booth staff, regardless of gender"
I wonder why they didn't include Cowboy chaps and codpieces, but maybe that's not a big issue on the floor.
How dare you oppress me and my right as a man to be slutty.
Unless you're playing nethack through an Xterm.
Are you plating nethack through a Xterm? If not, why not?
I'm doing all right with it. I don't suffer from excess dogma though.
Not if it's symmetric. But a side button for the thumb would suck on an asymmetric mouse.
I first grabbed a computer mouse in 1984 and I've been using them ever since, without hand pain. How long to I have to wait to find out?
The only issues I have with computer mice is the button configuration and the crap that builds on up the bottom.
If you talk to a school administrator and ask them to recover from the nightly backups, you are likely to get a blank stare back.
School districts and schools couldn't be worse set up to deal with complex system recovery.
> Touch panels are terrible.
For games, yes.
It's pretty neat for my mac where I can switch pretty seamlessly between 'X mode' and mac mode, depending on what window I'm in.
The apple mouse, the one with the touch panel where the buttons would be seems to manage this. You can configure it to register a middle tap as a middle click and disable the scroll function. Not that I play many games on my mac. Why you can't disable the scroll with normal mice is beyond me. I'd pay extra for a switch array on the bottom, just like Happy Hacking do with their keyboards.
In fact, we need the Happy Hacking people to make a mouse. They wouldn't screw it up.
