So a couple posts ago I talked about going back to being ‘wired’ and loving it and I just discovered a secondary benefit of my ‘great technological push backwards’… my new (cheap) mouse doesn’t have a back button.
I am delighted.
I can’t count the number of times I accidentally pressed the back button on my mouse and had it navigate to a previous webpage I didn’t want to go, or worse, lose work. I’ve always hated the little suckers and on a couple mice I actually removed or taped over the button. When you’re working with content generation in a web-based environment an accidental ‘back’ can cost you at best some annoyance, at worst, a significant amount of work.
Okay, now that I’ve shared this fantastic new discovery, its back to work for me.
