  1. I have a nice fancy laser mouse, and I want a different mousepad than my cloth one with a sticky back and the kitten designs. I gotta hold off till Chrismas, so I was thinking I could make a makeshift mousepad with inexpensive household objects. Any Idea/suggestions?

    Heh, because I don't need a real mouse pad, and play better without one with my mouse, I use a folder. One of those paper like folders, that don't have prongs.... X_D

    Paper you say? I don't think the mouse would glide very well.

    Try this

    You don't need any when you have no rollers.
    Use your desktop,noisy but it works and is free.

    Best to describe me, iAwp. That means I am the sniper for my CS:S team. Since I snipe I use a very low DPI and Sensitivity, a mouse mat usually limits how far I can turn because having to pick my mouse back up and moving it back. I just use my huge desk.

    My desk is glass. How do you expect a laser to reflect back with glass?
