My mouse pointer froze up while typing the post about houses, so naturally the first thing I did after rebooting was to Google "frozen mouse" to see what people had to say about it. One suggestion: Windows key followed by Esc. I'll try it next time. [Update March 6: Well, that didn't work. I'll have to look for a different incantation.] Another: The Mouse Factory. "All our mice and rats are flash-frozen and vacuum packed reducing freezer burn, thus greatly extending their freezer life and preserving their vitamins and nutrients." Mmmm ... that's good to know.

Update April 5: Replaced that mouse with this one. [$10 at Wal-Mart.] It's been a couple of weeks now, and no more problems. (Crosses fingers.) Hardware, not software problem, apparently. Click "Ok" Okay!
