Comment Stroke hand (Score 1) 221

I lost the use of my left arm and hand a year ago as a result of a gamma knife procedure to correct an AVM in my brain, so I'm very interested in any replies to this thread. I've been typing with one hand for over a year now and have gotten fairly proficient(as an ugly bastard, I wasn't terrible at one handed typing to begin with...), but I tried playing Torchlight II the other day and found that, while it's playable, two hands would be better than one. I was hoping to map some options to one of the multiple button on my mouse, but it appears that such a thing isn't available after a simple attempt. I hope I'm wrong and it is possible, but I've pretty much given up hope of seriously gaming again unless I can get my hand to operate again. If I do manage to get my hand working, I hope to play Tony Hawk again along with some MUDing to get my typing back up to par. Good luck, friend.

Microsoft Dodges Class Action In WGA Lawsuit 256

An anonymous reader writes "A lawsuit that accused Microsoft of misleading consumers to download and install an update for Windows Genuine Advantage under the guise that it was critical security update will go forward, but not as a class action. A federal judge has refused to certify the lawsuit as a class action, which would have meant that anyone who owned a Windows XP PC in mid-2006 could join the case without having to hire an attorney. As Windows XP was easily the most popular operating system at the time, the ruling means Redmond has managed to avoid hundreds of millions in potential damages."

This is clearly another case of too many mad scientists, and not enough hunchbacks.
