To turn left or right?

Just a guess.

I found you from Sans Pantaloons. I love your site. I’m going to poke around a little bit, but don’t worry I’ll put everything back where I found it!!

I think it's to steer to different dimensions.

Jane, I think that was RAND's idea of the mouse of the future. A little large, but ...

Kate, welcome! If you have a chance, go back to the thread about Mama Zed and my return to blogging after three years. The Mama Zed posts were everyone's favorites, and I think you might enjoy them. Thanks for stopping by!

Teri, I NEED more dimension! If only my computer could take me there! Right now, I'm heading only to my blog, game sites, and Websleuths, and Wikipedia. :)

Nice... I want one... I'd keep it in the basement with all my other old computers that Superwoman wishes that I'd through out.
