Are they sure? Have they tried turning him over and trying to blow the dust out?


#3

He has moved on to a new and better alternate mathematical equation, 88 double infinity. RIP


#4

For what its worth I still use a mouse exclusively and have since 1987.
I never got into pens or other hardware nifty bits (although my tasks
don’t require them either).

Um sniff-i never knew yee!


#5

Take the ball out, scrape off the dirt, dust and dead skin, should be good as new!

Funny how the simplest concepts, an x,y coordinate manipulator, can be so revolutionary.

That just made my afternoon :slight_smile:
