If your mouse has a ball, you need to periodically take off the little escape hatch on the bottom and clean the wheels & the ball itself.

Yup, knew about that one. Hadn't done it in a while and got some gunk out of there too.

1st bahamas then to the parents because we were stuck in a bathroom remodeling nightmare. Have a few great stories i could tell about that. Kitchen Remodel begins tomorrow. We are finally back home now and school has started back up for the spring semester. I am a student and also work at the school, so no home+no school=no DSL= very little woot.


Thanks SS for my new togs!

Did you have a film crew for the remodel? The funniest thing about remodeling nightmares is the photo journal of it as it's happening. Hopefully a happy ending!

LOL... I remember a time when 14.4 modems were cutting edge technology.

You are old, like me!! I think our first modem was 3xx. I can't remember exactly. That was back in the Radio Shack days. I had to reprogram the keyboard on a radio shack computer to do all the funny symbols we needed for an OCLC project. It would take me forever to get to the record I needed and someone would trip over my phone cord or something like that. The good old days were not really that good.

Yes, I'm that old. We never had the 300 baud modems- those were the ones that you put the phone handset ON the modem. But I was the proud owner of a TRS-80 Model I, III, and Apple II+ then IIe, then PC XL

I don't know what it was called, but I remember our first modem was one where you had to put the handset of the telephone into the squishy earphone thingies. I also remember having 8" floppy disks. Yeah, that last sentence is probably going to get quoted elsewhere...

pet nanny. she kept an eye on the house and took care of the puppies. I got a student to do it. only had to pay $350 for 12 days. would have cost twice that to kennel all 4 of them.

Maybe they weren't 300 because We didn't have to put the handset on the modem. What came after 300?

<insert typical comment that follows that>

I never used the large discs, but still have stuff on the smaller two formats. Of course, I don't have drives for the 5 1/4"s, but I can't bring myself to throw them out. They got my first two short stories on them!

Actually, they weren't. They were written in Word 5.1, and the file size was real small for those documents...

it seems that there is so much more "storage" that it doesn't matter how big it actually is. There will be room for more.

So there's the great debate: capacity versus file size.

I thought that cat was pretty darn cool when I found it. It's hypnotizing.

Cruzer can take it.
