That reminds me of the first mouse I ever used. It was on an Apple Lisa at work, a very expensive machine. I had to call each time I want to use it to see if it was working, it was down so often!

wow 10k back in 83' thats allot of money, "An additional 512K of RAM could be purchased for $1495" according to http://www.oldcomputers.net/lisa.html
not even a meg but half for 1.5K, operating systems sure did escalate and standards, isnt 4GB RAM standard on all win 8.0/8.1, i can just imagine the future (in the next 10-20 years) with 128GB RAM laptops eating 100GB RAM for the OS :lol: :lol: :lol:

Recently I found 2-3 not working mouses under my bed. Back in the days, when I used windows I played a lot of games so my mouse broke quite often. I don't throw away my broken hardware but I like to keep it and play with it (try to repair it - just for fun). When I found this 3 broken (dead) mice I was going to repair them or at least try to.
I thought - why not make one working mouse from my 3 broken ones but just for the very fun - I connected one of them in the usb - and cursor worked. I looked at it suspicious and thought that the button probably won't work. I was wrong. Buttons worked, cursor moved, everything worked 100%. I was amazed.
I took the second mouse - connected it and it ALSO worked like a charm (10+ years old dell). The third mouse also worked but has broken button.
So my mice died in windows (XP) but Linux Mint resurrected them :D How awesome is that. I don't know what happened to them but now they are working fine. :D
By the way I tested them in windows 7 and they also work. :lol:

So my girlfriend's getting a bit fed up of my enthusiasm for Linux as of late... I sent a message to her phone, politely informing her that she too was looking at a form of Linux :mrgreen:
Lenovo Yoga 13 | Linux Mint 17.3 (x64) | Cinnamon
Intel Core i7-3537U | Intel HD4000 | 8GB DDR3 | 256GB SSD

I would really love to drink one with you! To be honest, there are a lot of members that I would like to meet and discuss with.

Hope everyone is having a great 2016 so far!

Still using Mint as my main distro. Currently17.3 Cinnamon.

Try the specially brewed green mint beer in the cafe. It's delicious!
