I'm going to do some research on the lighting. I just want simple orange lights that plug into a USB slot.
On another note, I had no clue Liam Neeson was the voice actor for your father in Fallout 3! What a surprise!
@Grinder34, will these do the trick?
They're 39.3" long. $7 shipped is also really cheap from what I'm seeing! I'm going to keep looking for a bit and also await your response in the meantime. Is there anything special I should know about these or is the concept really that simple?
$13 shipped for a 16 (SIXTEEN) foot long strip!??! Perfect for under the bed!
Forgot to mention that almost two weeks ago I managed to find a great deal on the mouse I've been longing for the past year. Once again, I managed to break conventions and I actually found the seller on Craigslist. He was the ONLY person on the entirety of Craigslist that had the mouse. He was located in Denver, CO. He thought I was a scammer at first, but I managed to persuade him to ship. Everything went smoothly! I absolutely love this mouse as much as I thought I would and I believe it to be the epitome of its kind. They cost $100 brand new and I paid $50 shipped for mine. It also came with a hard shelled travel case. It was the best deal that I have seen, so I knew it was mine. It's the Logitech MX Ergo Trackball. I've been using trackballs for years and have been eyeing this one since it released. Well, now I finally have it! I'm sure you guys are aware of these types of experiences where you finally get a product in your hands and realize that it is truly worth its MSRP. This is one of those experiences for me. If you're a trackball user, this mouse is worth the full $100! It has a rechargeable battery and a single charge supposedly lasts for about 4 months. The unique feature that this mouse has is the 20 degree magnetic tilting base!
Just some updates:
So, after two months with the red LED light strip, I haven't discovered any differences as opposed to being without it. It's turned on every time my monitor is on. This could be because I've been using Flux for years. Since I have a blue light filter on nearly every device (can't get them on gaming consoles yet...), I just may not be affected. However, when I do see a screen that isn't filtered, it seems excessively and unnecessarily bright. I don't think I can ever go back to life before Flux. (I use the term Flux since it's the main program I use, but I'm referring to blue light filters in general.)
So, after two months with the MX Ergo, I don't think I can ever go back to using a flat mouse ever again... The 20 degree incline makes such an insane difference. I recall it taking me about a week to get used to angle at first. Now, If I am to switch it back to the flat mode, it feels extremely off. It may be that you have to test the mouse out for yourself as words most likely can't justify the experience. Also, If you do want to buy this mouse, don't pay retail (even though it's well worth it). You can find them slightly used on eBay for $50-60.
Have you guys purchased anything new regarding computers lately? Any new fads or things of interest that I should look into?
