    Re: Funny Memo..Mouse Balls

    That was GREAT! I almost fell off my chair! Good thing I wasn't in the middle of a coffee, else my KB would have been full.

    Reminds me of several years ago when the Mickey Antenna toppers first came out and someone posted to add about the Mickey Mouse balls.

    It can't be true... since when is the replacement of mouse balls a delicate procedure? Just twist, dump out the ball, and put an new one in!

    Re: Funny Memo..Mouse Balls

    I saw a copy of that memo some 5 years back or more. At that point it was very old. Back then it may have been a delicate procedure, but so was upgrading from 4 to 8 mg ram memory. (which cost me over $100, BTW!)

    It's never been a delicate procedure. The design of a mouse with balls has never changed. It's always been the same twist, let the balls drop, and replace procedure.
