The Dummy Mouse

No, I'm not calling India a dummy. I'm referring to the "computer" I rigged up for my daughter, who really wants to play computer games like her big brother. However, every time I let her sit down to the computer, she would bang on the keys and move the mouse like a toy car, which usually resulted in opening files, prompting printer boxes, and any other number of right-click functions that threatened to crash the computer. Not to mention, her brother didn't like being kicked off his game only to watch her terrorize the hard drive.

I finally figured out a solution that makes everyone happy, and cost me about $15 total ($3 for a monitor splitter and a trip to a few garage sales for old computer parts.)

For those of you who always ask me how I find time to blog, this is how! Let's hope India doesn't figure out the ruse anytime soon.
