    When I check for new posts, it shows the "newest" post to the forums as being on 5/9/08 at 832am PST. It's now 5/11/08 137am PST. Weird. Checking in the Front Page News forum, it shows some topics as having 0 posts when there are several posts in them. Anyone else seeing this??

    Logitech MX Revolution - Anyone have one???

    I do, and I like it. Except for the fact that the only way to get it working properly is to have the receiver plugged into the front USB ports on my Stacker. I don't like it sticking out front. Besides that, the front of the case is close to my chair and I have banged into the receiver on...
