Microsoft Mouse left click sluggish

I bought a M$ mouse for my win7 laptop. It often failed the left click action when I tried to move the mouse fast and click on link. If I slowed down to a halt then click on the link, it worked fine.

A simple way to correct that sluggishness is to go to Control Panel, Mouse,  pointer options, motion and set "enhanced pointer precision" to "checked".

Posting Links in FaceBook

When posting links in FB, it is usual for users to just post the link in "Update Status". You will find an excerpt of the page you linked appearing below your message area. After posting it, you will find two links. One is the link you post another is the excerpt. It is actually a repeat of the link. 

Do you know that after the link excerpt appears, you can actually delete the link that you just pasted. You can then type your own message or just leave it blank. It will look nicer this way.
