When I use this code I can still see my own pointer 'drag' a bit behind before it hides behind my mouse. How do you get it to not display your own pointer?

Do you have to have the Node server send you your id so you know which mouse to not display?

I'm intrigued by ratelimit()... If "last" value is calculated right away, then with every mousemove event the "last" will be updated? I'll have to read that a couple times to understand how it maintains the 40ms rate limit.

I apologize if I'm wrong, but I believe it should be "socket.broadcast(...)" as opposed to "client.broadcast(...)" (lines 33 and 37 in server.js).
