I have the following armrest, which as you can see is on a forward incline:



I use a Razer mouse bungee so it's not convenient to take my mouse off every time I get up off my chair:



And now that I use a hard mousepad, my mouse is always sliding off.

After literally 20-30 spine chilling knocks on the floor, I had to find a better solution...and here it is:

Firstly, I put two really strong magnets in the top corner where my mouse never goes anyway:





And because the G502 has magnets underneath, it holds on tight! All I need to do is flick it to the left to snap it off...check out the vid below!

I've had these @#$% magnets on my fridge for years, I can't believe it's taken me till now to think about using them.

That's pretty handy. I think roads and gduck did something similar with their lapdesk. You can't beat the convenience of a magnet.

Next step should be to clean up the cables. Actually, I should clean up my cables too. :)

haha! I've been doing a lot of programming with the Titan Two so I've been swapping stuff out, switching between consoles, testing lots of ideas. I've got cables and accessories all over my living room. It's a bit of a mad house here right now!

do you play high sens? I'd be toast with such a small amount of mouse real estate
