ill throw a note in here about noticing latency:

i'd notice immediately.   50-100ms is a LOT of latency for an online game - even an MMO.  

i wouldnt want to try to Arena in WoW with another 100ms of latency thrown in - thats an automatic loss waiting to happen.

I don't feel compelled to respond to that in any way

Is it the American version? I assume it is the version that is watched in the U.S.

Us Americans generally watch the American version of our T.V. shows.

The office is really a stand out case there. Both are fresh takes on the same thing. Some people like the american one better, and others the UK version.

If you want a good office comedy though, see mike judge's 'Office Space'. That, is a hoot and a holler.

I wouldnt say that the US version is particularly fresh...
Nor would I say that the UK version is any good.

Its somehow managed to turn itself into one of those TV shows which youre expected to absolutely adore, like Family Guy... Incidentally, I dislike Family Guy too.

I would have to agree with AMG. Office Space is a great film, (supposedly) a very true look at work and I.T.

I just bought the Razer Death Adder today. I can say without a doubt that I love the mouse. It's a big performance step up from the Logitech MX510 that i was using before. It slides nicer, on the fly sensitivity, nicer click (the mx510 would jam at times when the clicker got above the metal border surrounding it). All in all a great mouse that even compatible with OS X

Glad you like it.  Try setting the forward thumb button to OTF sensitivity adjustment and let me know how that works out for you.  Also, don't forget to set the thing to 1800 dpi and 1000 Hz.

thanks for the tips. I set the OTF sensitivity to the front button and changed the dpi and hz, works even better now

I dont use OTF in Mac OS X... maybye because i dont play games in OS X. I use the side buttons as Exposé buttons.
