Where, oh where did my cursor go?

In the spirit of increased productivity, I’ve upgraded from one old CRT to two LCD screens, and new this week, now three. While I’m really enjoying the increased workspace, the cursor is a lot harder to find!

I vaguely remembered that there used to be some keyboard sequence that would animate a bull’s eye around the cursor. In googling for it, I found:

Ouch, this hits too close to home! The tips are Vista ready, but not quite what I was looking for.

Jiggling the mouse to move the cursor around doesn’t work if it’s in my peripheral vision, I can’t detect the motion. (Shouldn’t I be able to? Something to ask at my next eye exam.)

Any suggestions out there?
