long live the clunkers

The mouse on my desktop gave out the other day. I was sad to see it go. Originally it came with an SGI Indy in 1994 or 1995, so it had served its time well. My keyboard is still one of the old Indy clunkers, and aside for an Insert keycap that I broke off somehow, it's still the only keyboard I'd want. You hear of people having Model M obsessions, but I think this thing holds its own. If it ever dies I've got another sitting at home ready to replace it.
