Actually I had high hopes for it. I don't part with $15 unless I'm
feeling optimistic about it. So, IT chose to not play nice, to start
with. Then I tried the line of reasoning; "Human has blunt object in
hand. Human will win, at all costs." with it. It got a little bit
better, but begrudgingly so. 

Now it waits until it can tilt the Warzone2100 battleground all over
(right click will stick) and royally irritate me, causing me to use much
foul language. Piece of Logitech crap. Smashing it to smithereens would
be too good for it. I think that is what it wants, but I'm on to
it.  :( Ric
