Man my poor old trust Logitech MX700 is finally starting to give up the ghost, I’ve had this mouse for AGES, it replaced my first optical mouse the MS Intellimouse (Yeah I think MS Software sucks, but they make REALLY nice peripherals).
After that gave up and bit the bullet, I treated myself to a mad wireless optical mouse, the Logitech MX700, the dream of geeks and gamers alike.
At that time it was pretty rare.
At that time I was indeed l33t!
But now, the old fella is looking a bit worn and tired.
The looks don’t bother me..the problem really is that the pads used to connect to the base station and charge…HAVE GONE RUSTY!
It’s very hard to get it to charge now..then I think because of this the old batteries gave up, and wouldn’t hold the charge any more. So I bought some new ones, and it still won’t charge, I have to charge them in a standalone charger..
Bah! Standby batteries always at hand just in case my MOUSE goes flat..not good!
I’ve tried smoothing out the rusty points with a nail file, it didn’t work, next I’m gonna try and rubthem with pen eraser (If I can find one).
I was thinking of buying the new fancy MX1000 laser mouse, but it’s pretty freaking expensive..
My poor old mouse, is indeed looking sad.
