That's what I did tonight with a brand new Logitech mouse. The buttons
are for crap, so I took the butt-end of a heavy duty flashlight and
pounded on the buttons. It still doesn't work well, but we got our
relationship sorted out and I felt better. Logitech builds crap. I
shoulda known better after my crap USB headphones from them. I think
that's why I took the flashlight to it. Take THAT! Logitech! :) Ric
