That's pretty funny. One of my friends is a former Java programmer...who is 
now attending nursing school.

Ah, I missed that.  I always use the standard X select/paste with the mouse.

I would say that's a failing of gnome.  It is standardized.  I know I 
can use either the mouse or the cut/paste menu options in mozilla.  I've 
even mixed and matched them and found them to work. (select with mouse, 
paste via menu..)

Re: wireless mouse/keyboard

I bought my wife that same set for her winbloze box and the wireless (ball type) mouse died at about 5 months old. Bought her a new Logitec wireless optical mouse and it talks to the old antenna just fine and she's much happier now.

On the flipside though, I bought myself a new Logitec wireless keyboard and optical mouse combo the other day. Everything was just beautiful for a couple of hours until I started flipping through the ports on my Belkin KVM switch and the thing went crazy. Immediately changed back to my corded ones but haven't had the time to test the wireless ones on a single box yet.

I can answer this part.  If you're only planning on living there for 2 years, 
do NOT buy a house.  Rent one.

Well, when all else fails, check the obvious.  My 'puter is about 15 
feet away, thus I have a very long extension on my mouse cable. 
Extension came loose....  I should likely be able to remove that cable 
though, since I'm wireless, but haven't made the time to do so...

Re: [WAY OT]Reverse Engineering MS Visual Basic Applications

	Unless you are an employee (and therefore the product is a work for hire owned by the 
employer) the copyright is automatically held by the creator of the work and must be explicitly 
transferred to the buying party. You'd be surprised how much software written is owned by the 
contractors (or contracting agency) and no-one, including the contractors, are even aware of it 
because there were no copyright assignments in place and people are generally ignorant of this 
fact.

	If you think the buyer should have all the rights then you would also believe that you own 
the copyrights to books and music that you buy. That's absurd of course because copyright is not 
about a tangible asset but about intellectual property - ownership of your creation and ideas. More 
often than not the buyer is purchasing a license to use this property rather than transfer of the 
property itself. Capitalist economies are fundamentally driven by this idea which seeks to reward 
and incentify those who create new ideas that benefit society and create new wealth.

RE: wireless mouse/keyboard

Usually when my mouse stops.    It is the batteries.  It has gotten me a few times as I think I am having some type of problem and reboot the machine first.  AAA batteries just don't have the long life in them and I can't find my rechargeable.
 
 
I have had the mouse go crazy on me when changing from Windows and Linux.  And since the HOT key to change the screen is the scroll lock. I can sometimes have a problem in Linux.  Windows must ignore this key for the most part.  As far as the mouse going crazy.   I don't touch the mouse until the screen has changed and the new sync status on the monitor goes away.

INAL, but I've researched this, and as I understand it, at least in the 
state of Georgia, it depends on the contract.  I've picked up a number 
of books on small businesses and they all have different wordings for 
contracts dependent on what the final intent of the ownership is.  All 
the contract templates I've seen, you specify what the buyer rights are 
regarding the software and what the developer's rights are.

Personally, I think it should depend on the agreement.  I'm currently 
negotiating with a client regarding one work effort.  I've told him that 
if I build this system for him it will be one price, but if I build it 
for him and then sell it to others, it'd be a lot cheaper.
