It’s amazing what a difference gunk makes,

And it’s quite sad too, my nice and not so shiny anymore Microsoft Explorer mouse, just gunked up, well the wheel did, because it doesn’t have a mouse ball (I ditched mouse balls years ago, and I am never going back).

Anyway the wheel gunked up to the extent it wouldn’t click anymore, so I’ve just got as much gunk of as I could (unlike old mice you can’t take an intellimouse apart), and it’s amazing the difference, I thought I had a stiff wheel mouse, because earlier wheel mice, had much tougher wheels than the newer ones, but it turns out mine was just full of gunk (I try not to think about what the gunk actually is).

it’s like I’ve got a new mouse.
