Just spent like 20 minutes trying to figure out why the heck my mouse pointer was jumping around randomly. Got as far as monitoring the output of /dev/mice before I finally realized I still had my drawing tablet plugged in and buried under a pile of paper, so it was just getting confused as heck 🤦‍♂️

Best part, I had just moved from my laptop to the desktop and this was also happening on my laptop, because I was running Synergy and the erratic mouse movements were getting sent over the network to my other computers!
