If your mouse is ever playing up and darting across the screen rather than behaving istself do the following:

1. Check your drunkeness. 12 beers in 2 hours may affect your mouse co-ordination skills.
2. From the printer, open the printer tray and take a piece of paper. Put that under the mouse. Your mouse may start working correctly.

The reason is that most Qantas Clubs use Infra-Red mouses. These rely on smoothness of surfaces as well as some other quirks. A piece of blank, white paper helps the infra-red to work correctly.

My money is on point number one as the most likely cause :!:
