Mouse & Keyboard in XP

www.microsoft.com/hardware/mouseandkeyboard/
Here’s a curious thing. My new XP system kept hanging recently, and culprit each time (when it wasn’t the annoying Debuglog.log) was Point32.exe. That’s my mouse! So I checked out Microsoft’s Mouse & Keyboard website and discovered that I should be using Intellipoint 5.0 for XP, rather than the 4.1 installed. Let’s hope things are a little more stable now. Microsoft must be fed up of my almost constant stream of automated crash reports.

Powerpoint band

My brother, Eddie, has asked me to play guitar (Burns Brian May, of course!) in the Powerpoint band once a month. Powerpoint is a Christian youth event held at St Thomas’s Episcopal Church on Glasgow Road here in Edinburgh; I think it is overseen by Youth For Christ (YFC) – at least, it used to be. I played my first ‘gig’ with the band this month.
