Bad, bad support

I have what is supposed to be a top of the line mouse. I paid over $100 for the unit. Its A MOUSE. I'm almost embarassed to admit what I paid.

Usually its fine but recently the mouse has been acting up.

So I ask the folks that support this thing for some help and I get this response:
"Please try the mouse on another machine, if it works fine, try formating your PC."
Unbelievable. I don't have another machine to experiment with. What kind of user is going to reformat their PC in order to make a MOUSE work?!

Remember, I paid $100 for a MOUSE and these guys are suggesting I reformat my PC to get it to work. Sigh.

Just so you know what to avoid, I'm using a Razer Copperhead mouse and this appears to be the level of suport we receive.

This has to be one of the funniest interviews I've ever seen. TOTALLY makes me want to hurry up and have kids.

Consumerist - AOL

If you have 4 minutes, do yourself a favor and check out the MP3 that this page links to.
Its a recording of a guy trying to cancel his AOL account and its incredible he never yelled once.
I'd have gone ballistic if it were me.

Backing Winds: May 26th chase

I love a good storm - too bad we don't get too many out here.
If you want to see some incredible pics someone took chasing storms in the mid-west (where they apparently get some doozy's), check this out.
