Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

Gotta a problem with your pussy messing up your keyboard? Does the thought of your moggy spoiling your beautiful Excel worksheet give you the cobblewobbles? If so, help is at hand, unless this is all a horrible spoof, of course. A Swedish reader sends news of PawSense, software which can apparently tell when a pedigree or mongrel kitty is messing with your PC. According to information found on this Web site, PawSense can distinguish between the jabbings of human fingers and the distinctive paw impressions a cat makes when it's trying to order fillet steak rather than rendered horseflesh from your online grocery outlet. Once a cat has been recognised, the blurb continues, PawSense will block input from the quadruped, giving the message "Cat Like Typing Detected". PawSense for Windows 95/98 apparently costs $19.99. ®
