my round, global map, mouse pad freebie (oracle, circa 1994) is gross. can i wash it? or do you have a cool (new) round mousepad link?

nothing for gaming, please, (icemat, func, aluminum, mouse rugs, please no.) and it must match a black logitech v200 wireless and a immaculate G3 iBook. i like dark colors cuz they don't show dirt.... i like round, well, cuz i do.

yeah, i'm picky, and i don't really want to design one a' la cafe press.

Search for MicroThin at Office Depot's site — they have mouse pads which are apparently very thin. Some are round, and some are black, though I don't see any which are both. Unfortunately MicroThin itself seems to sell only customized mouse pads to corporations in minimum quantities of 1,000.

Why do you need a mousepad if you have an optical mouse?

Paris: old skool, i guess. i just like the way the mouse glides silently over the surface, rather than bumping over the woodgrain of my desk.

Exactly how nerdy are you? (I bought one and some other stuff too.)

Is there an IKEA near you? They've got black ones with a "durable, wipe-clean surface" and cheapo, round foam pads, too.

Yes, you can wash it very easily, provided the foam is not disintegrating. Put it in a sink with dishwasher liquid and hot water. Let it soak. Attack stubborn stains with a toothbrush. Rinse by letting water run over one side at a time while you rub. It should look like new.
