Was there something else (on the screen, in his mind, in the surroundings) taking his interest at the moment (that is, was he distracted?) or did he have a purpose for clicking other than finding out the result? (like, perhaps, he was testing something?)

My cats are very interesting in computer screens. They tend to paw at the screen when something moves. So you may have been clicking on things just for the pet's amusement.

The specific program - is it a web browser?
Is Adobe Flash involved? Java?
Anything related to reaction time?

Where were you in your home? At your workplace?
Was anyone else looking at your computer screen?

Sorry, all. There hadn't been much activity on it the last few times I'd been here. And, naturally the next time I'm on, there's three posts waiting.

was he clicking because the screen had frozen and he was just doing that unitl it started responding again? No.

The specific program - is it a web browser? Yes.
Is Adobe Flash involved? No. Java? No.
Anything related to reaction time? No.

Where were you in your home? Yes, but Irr. At your workplace? No, but Irr.
Was anyone else looking at your computer screen? No.

How about another hint?
I knew the answer to the lateral thinking puzzle posted immediately after this one.

Hmm...I click on all the lateral puzzles, not just the ones I'm interested in, so that when the ones I am interested in get new questions/answers, I know. Anything like this?

That's exactly it! And, yes, it was your puzzle, 'Should Look Before She Leaps' that was posted straight after mine, that I immidiately knew. Great job!

It has kind of been difficult to run a puzzle while not really being involved with the site, so perhaps I'll probably just answer puzzles in the future.
