Kids today, they don’t know
I’m sorry they sold REPLACEMENTS for your fucking mouse balls?
Are you fucking serious
Were they that easy to take out, even. I could’ve cleaned that shit myself.
It wasn’t the balls that were easy to clean but the tiny rolls on the inside of the mouse where all the dust/dirty stuff was stuck onto.
Hah! I feel better now, thank you.
…I mean the rolls were super easy to clean <.<
I always thought they were really easy to clean. o_O They also sold little velcro balls. You open up the mouse, put that in there, roll it around, and it pulls out all the dust that collected. Easy peasy! Though I didn’t even bother with that, I just used my fingers.
I’m 32 though and have been using computers since I was 5 years old. My dad was a computer dude for the Navy base, though, so we’ve had them all my life.
Dude I work in a chemistry lab and all our big and/or expensive instruments still run on Windows 95 or Windows NT.
…it sometimes makes me yearn for simpler days.
When I was in grade school, our computer lab had a bunch of Apple ][’s and about ten Macintoshes with those ball-mice (hur hur). Practically every morning there’d be an announcement reminding us not to open up the mice and steal the balls because they’re expensive to replace.
I don’t know what people did with them.
Oh my god.
Hover and Mindmaze! :-) :-) :-)
This makes me feel weird. Mostly because all this feels like it was just a couple of years ago. Argh.
