curse being placed on a cursor

Also, I will admit: this is the first bad pun I've done that I unironically like. I attribute that to the festive sleeve on the cursing cursor.

Like the pun, but those aren't cursers, they're Mouse pointers. Cursers are the input brackets you find in word processing programs and in DOS. They usually look like 'I' or '|'

wait, but wikipedia shows them as cursors.
i'm so confused!!!

(p.s. i live the gypsy cursor. and that "curse" looks like a hex from dragon age. have you been playing that again? i think the new dlc has come out.)

As someone who grew up on DOS, Windows 2.0 and Windows 3.11 for Workgroups and remembers the day when people had to "park" their hard drives via command prompt...now I forgot what I was going to say.

In regards to your HTML joke, would he be like the old hourglass cursor that did nothing, or would like the new ones that flip over once all the "sand" on the top was depleted?
