Scrolling mouse

Could anyone suggest a good Mouse to use with OSX? The Apple (slightly) Mighty Mouse, just does not last in a commercial working environment. e.g. the scroll ball bungs up, and stops working. :frowning:

Turn the mouse over and, pressing down hard on the ball, run it
backwards and forwards on a sheet of white paper until it leaves no
marks.

There is lots of stuff on the web with suggestions how to solve this problem, but this one actually one works.

Thanks

I must admit to liking Logitech mice. I’m currently using their MX 1000 Laser mouse with my Power Mac G5/10.4.11 without any problems.

Strangely on the Logitech website it doesn’t have the Mac-compatible logo shown but it is listed in the specs http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/mice_pointers/mice/devices/783&cl=gb,en. Their software has also recently been updated to removed the dreaded Unsanity’s Application Enhancer (APE).

The Mighty Mouse doesn’t have a scroll ball - it’s optical?

It’s the nipple on the top that gets bunged up.

The Mighty Mouse has a small scroll ball/button on top for page scrolling etc. and as other guys have said it gets bunged up easily.

Turn it over and scroll away to get that gunge out of there.

… but make sure you haven’t got the file ‘My Novel’ open when you
do it :slight_smile:

Hey Roger’s Nipple is not showing on the Web

I see that, I’m looking in the database at the raw message, and I
can’t see anything wrong with it. There’s a long chain of text
transformation that happens inside the Mailist software to make
things safe for the web and to auto-format code blocks and such so
that things look nicer. But there’s something about this message
that’s being mis-interpreted for some reason.

Roger, did you switch mail software at some point? I also see
something about Google in the headers. Was this sent through Gmail?

I put it back manually, but this is going to take some watching
carefully. I would really like to get to the bottom of this as soon
as possible.

Yes, I sent it from my Powerbook using the Gmail web page. (This one’s
from my iMac using GyazMail.)

Can you go back in time and try this again? Try to repeat the entire reply, the quote, everything – on Gmail. Only this time, make sure to put a couple of returns top and bottom in the message and between the quote and your reply.

What’s happening here is that the mail is being sent as multi-part HTML, and the parser is getting confused where one part begins and ends. The problem is on my end, in the mail parser, but I would like to see if it sorts itself out if there are clear boundaries between the parts.

This is the first example of this bug that I have seen, and other people on the lists use Gmail. So I want to make sure that if I fix this one edge case, I don’t break it for everyone else.

Thanks,

Walter

Oops, sorry. Just realised I re-sent the wrong one.

There’s something mightily wrong with the way that Gmail is
formatting these.

Thanks for your help, I’ll have to go back and see what’s gone wrong.
