Work work work...

I just closed the 600th ticket (in our current ticket system) with the "replaced mouse" solution. I think I should get a prize or something! Maybe I'll go fish the broken mouse outta the trash and hang it on my cube wall with a big "600" sign. ;-)

In other news, it's hot Hot HOT outside!!! Cursed daystar!

You've been paying attention, I see!

To be clear, that's 600 mice enterprise-wide, not 600 for me, although in the time I've been here I've probably done about that many. I gotz mad skillz!! Ph34r mY m0U$3 FOO!

BTW, your icon is awesome.

Hanging mice
The campus tech department at my last school had a mouse tree, i.e. a coat rack with mice hanging from it. They had the round iMac hockey puck mice, some of the oval Apple optical mice, and quite a few of the normal mice. Each mouse was labelled with a date. :)

Re: Hanging mice
What a gruesome image! It reminds me of the pirates hung on public display as a warning to others in the opening of Pirates of the Caribbean.

Then again, back when The Company was a bit more tolerant of eccentric behavior we used to hold trials for defective mice. We'd read the accusation "You, Compaq part number whatever, stand accused of being a defective mouse. How do you plea?" Without exception they'd say nothing in their own defense, be found in contempt of court, and sentenced to death by crowbar (in honor of Half-Life- I kept a crowbar at my desk specifically for that purpose). We'd take turns executing the prisoners.

Those were brutish, uncivilized times. God, how I miss them! :-)

Re: Hanging mice
*glee!* Mouse trials!

As an alternate punishment, they should have too much cheese smeared in their innards. And be de-tailed.
