Re: has the trackball landscape changed in any way lately?

Yep, I hated that scroll wheel, too. I never really found any trackball useful for me, either my thumb or my wrist hurts after a few minutes of use.

But I don't have any problems using normal mice, so I can live with that. But I'm always eager to find new input methods ;)

Re: has the trackball landscape changed in any way lately?

Oh, I see, that's a possibilty!

@matt3o: There used to be a magnet inside the housing which created more friction for the scroll wheel. If your scrolling experience is pretty much fluid, then your unit propably does not have one.

Re: has the trackball landscape changed in any way lately?

Regarding the Kensinton Expert: Just removing the magnet inside the housing will make the scroll wheel feel way better!

You can pop it back in later if you don't like the feel.

Re: latte/coffee solutions

I, too, drink my coffee without milk or sweeteners just because on my first job both were missing all the time and I just got accustomed :D Nowadays, the best coffee for me is turkish mocca! You prepare it in a thing called Dzhesva made from copper, I don't even know how to pronounce that... Anyway,...

So, finally, I found a grimy model m in the trash! It cleaned up very nice, key caps are still in excellent conditions, a few are missing, and it's from 1986. 20180610_0011.jpg The controller: 20180610_0007.jpg But what looks really weird: Model G?? 20180610_0009.jpg 20180610_0010.jpg So, is this so...

Unfortunately, there won't be a way to do objective, universal acoustic measurements. Actually, it's not that difficult!
