Anyone participating? :D

It's a project to count key strokes, there's a small program running on your computer registering and transmitting the number of keystrokes you make each hour. Your total is compared to other participants'. There is the option to form teams and "compete" against each other.

Oh thats not so bad...i thought you meant this week :D

Speaking of keystrokes, I got a Gyration keyboard and mouse for Christmas and its wonderful. The keyboard is wireless and it's tiny, about the size of a laptop keyboard. Typing on it takes a little getting used to, but because its so small you can type in bed or anywhere else, you can even put it away in a drawer when you aren't using it.

The mouse is the best part. It too is wireless and it has a gyroscope in it, so you can use it in thin air, you don't need to have it on a surface. All you do is move your wrist and the cursor moves along with you. Of course you can use it flat as it is an optical mouse too. It really is a great product, I encourage everyone too look into it.

I think it was $100, I don't know how much that is in whatever currency Norway uses (Euros?)

Its still new though so I'm sure the price will fall over the next few months...

The mouse is pretty good, although sometimes it gets a little slow when i have a bunch of programs running, I think I'm gonna be able to fix it. Precision wise its great, although using it in midair takes some getting used to, I'm still not very good at it.

we use Norske kroner, or Norwegian kroners, you might have seen the seinfeld where Elaine and David Puddy go to Norway and talk about our weird coins with holes in them.

Btw the dolphin is dead, too many people were interested in participating so the server couldn't take the load and was shut down :wallbang:
