Order of Canada

Individuals who do not respect women's rights to choose should not be part of the Order of Canada. Canada's highest honour has no place for intolerance and regression. Let them return their honours.

Logitech G3 Mouse

I picked up a Logitech G3 Mouse from Canada Computers today. It's got 5 (five) buttons, a scroll wheel, plus a middle button for changing DPI sensitivity on-the-fly. The DPI toggle is hard-wired, so it isn't dependent on drivers.

The laser mouse works perfectly with my MacBook Pro (running Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard), and I was able to configure each of the buttons to do different things with Expose and Dashboard. No drivers needed!
