Welcome to CF!

I miss ball mice...... NOT. So glad we have laser. So much easier and forgiving to use.

Lol I remember the good old ball mice. We used to take them out and roll them across the hallways at school. I also remember the old mac's with green screens O and playing the crap out of Oregon Trail.

Lol @ Oregon Trail. Man, I always died of dysentery or was bit by a snake that game was fun though.

That's offices in England for you, when I retired from the firm of solicitors in 1996 they were using them, & they still do, I saw that on Monday when I was invited to come in for a pre-Christmas drink, it was mulled wine, yummy!!

ball mice were so annoying but my sis found laser mice really annoying coz she had this computer desk with a really smooth surface and the laser mouse wouldnt work on it.


i know i know stop being cheap and buy a mouse mat lol but i thought the whole i dear of these laser mice was that they didnt need a mouse mat or something like that ?
