It's the first day back from Spring Break, and I'm in a bit of a mood. Specifically, I've decided to finally speak out on a topic that's been bothering me for several months now. In fact, as you can see, it more than bothers me.
Yes, every time I sit down at one of the hopelessly inefficient computers in one of the three Boalt Hall library computer labs, I have to rotate the mouse pad 90 degrees. I don't know who's responsible for this. Maybe it's the cleaning crew, maybe they don't own computers and can't comprehend the correlation between "thing you move the mouse on" and "thing that the mouse moves moves around on," and think that the vertical orientation is best in terms of space saving. Maybe everyone else on campus only moves the mouse cursor in very narrow, vertical paths. Whoever the collective culprit, I'd like to think that I can somehow shame people into arranging mouse pads the way God intended it.
Next week: Why you shouldn't lower the goddamn swivel chairs all the way the hell down.
