    Dirty balls suck.

    Yeah. I hate dirty balls. Maybe it's time to buy a better mouse. :P

    Optical - the only way to go.

    I used to go through ball mice about once every six months. After awhile, the guides would get sort of bent or overworn, and the thing would lose its tracking. And let's not even mention having to clean out the hand salsa.

    Oh and I hate dirty balls too.

    The side buttons work, but I could never get them bound right in Quake3. It would view the side buttons as like buttons 2 and 3. Could never make it realize there were five buttons.

    I'll check out the PET. Looked far and wide for info on this awhile back. Nothing I found solved my problem. I'll take a look.

    Thanks.

    I've got a trackball; I have to clean it about once a week, but I like it and when it dies, I'll get another one.
    In the spirit of this thread, a blast from the '60's!!

    I keep my balls clean with regular maintanance. Every month I get in there and give it a good clean out, remove all hair and dust and any bugs. Works like a charm.
