Hadn't realized before that there were Sun-2 mice which weren't black (were
white/beige). I know some folks are looking.
I am in need of a Sun3 mouse but that one looks like it got pulled out
from under the porch.
It doesn?t really look any worse than the ?hockey puck? mouse that?s now on my VAXstation
4000/90 did, before I cleaned it up. Not sure where I got that mouse from, I?ve probably
had it for 20+ years, especially given where I found it a few months ago, when I went
looking for one. It was disgusting enough that I didn?t really want to touch it. The
cleaner mouse didn?t work.
FWIW: I don't know what the brown color comes from in this case, but I've in the
past cleaned up some electronics that was badly encrusted with tobacco smoke residue. A
very effective cleaner for that is Windex, which is also quite mild and unlikely to harm
any plastics. At an earlier time I used alcohol, which worked too but badly messed up a
plexiglass display cover on the device in question. Plexiglass is odd that way, it's
one of the few plastics that is damaged by ethanol.
