I'm surprised no one else has noted the passing of Douglas Engelbart. Who? you ask. Oh, he just invented something I guarantee you used within the last minute. You had to, to click the link for this post.

The inventor of the computer mouse, and his passing, was on this morning's BBC news.

Rest in Peace, Doug, knowing we are all using our mice in tribute.

Time for a 21 click salute.

I'm sure Doug would chuckle at this apparently true IT support story.

"This lady calls up Computer Support saying that she is having difficulty controlling the cursor on the screen. The IT man duly turns up, and finds the mouse on the floor by her feet. She had thought it was a foot pedal of some sort and had been trying to use it in her stockinged feet!"

But apparently you can buy them now ....
