Most of you will be able to see a scene like this, often complete with the stain, at this very moment. Your material may not necessarily be a woven fabric, though.

Is that a mouse pad? I've got three of them in front of me--one has the American Flag on it, one has the Gateway Computer logo, and one is a beautiful dark gray! All three have fabric on top of what I think is neoprene. Your object appears to have a plastic frame. I think I have seen a few mouse pads with frames.

So, am I all wet?

Sherlock Rasmussen strikes again! Spot on. The 'frame' is the optical mouse (so the pad is an unnecessary historic hangover, really.)

I use an optical mouse and it actually works better on a pad than on the bare desk. The pad also protects the desk from getting scratched by the mouse.
