There is an SMP client for multiple processor/core machines that will result in much higher point totals. I can post some more details if anyone is interested. It looks like the "Easy" way to do it is using a virtual machine with Linux running on it. This seems like a little more effort than I want to go for, but the points are dramatically higher.
In other news, I missed rinberg signing up. Thanks for joining the cause!
My grandmother suffered a bout with a chemically-induced confusion that was very similar to Alzheimer's, so I have alot of sympathy for the cause.-- The only reason I didn't sign up before was because of the dialup connection I was suffering from, but I got over that...
First, rule out your mouse as the cause of the problem. If you have a different mouse you can try, I would recommend unplugging the mouse and using a different one. If you are using a PS2 mouse, try a USB one. If you are using USB, try PS2.
