comment Windows 7, 2 mice, 1 user, and “Switch primary and secondary buttons” on 1 mouse only?
Are you good with a soldering iron? I've only done this once, but on that mouse's board the circuit traces connecting the buttons were big, easy to cut, and easy to solder to. Four cuts and four pieces of wire, plus 30 minutes of your time, might solve your problem. (Of course this voids all warranties and risks destroying the mouse!)

comment New Lenovo Thinkpad Edge '15 has Worse Wi-Fi Reception Than 2 year old Macbook
It sounds like there's something wrong with the device - you shouldn't see such a dramatic difference between the two. It might be as simple as an antenna wire being disconnected. I'm not familiar with that model, but Thinkpads usually have a small removable panel on the bottom that covers the WiFi card. Making sure all antenna leads are connected is a good start, and making a warranty claim would be the next step. Lenovo is really good about warranty work, too.

comment Is there a modern monitor that works with original amigas?
There's a secret about RF output: if set to channel 3, it's the same as the color composite video output. The other way around: color composite video is simply RF video at channel 3. What we used to do is make adapters out of a standard RCA connector and a standard television cable connector. We could then connect a machine to a standard TV (tuned to channel 3) without needing one of those game switcher boxes. As for the video quality, that will depend on your cables and the monitor. Many of the modern TVs do a good job of cleaning up the analog signal. (... and sorry for the slow reply!)
