Mice or mouses?

I was going to go off topic on an I'ble, but thought the question would be better asked in the forums. I have always wondered if the plural of mouse (as in the one connected to your PC) is the same as the plural of mouse as in the rodent (or favourite cartoon character). I think that the PC mouse is named after the rodent because of the physical similarity, but does that mean that they are the same? Plural of mouse (rodent), is mice. Plural of mouse (PC), mice or mouses? What are your thoughts? N.B. I have been drinking.

How do I rewire my mouse to make a pistol mouse? Answered

I found this tutorial and I would love to know how to rewire my mouse to make into a pistol mouse? I have a Gateway MOAKUO optical mouse. On the back of the circuit board my mouse has the left click switch in a vertical position and the right click switch on a horizontal position right next to the switch for the wheel. My problem is that I don't know in which of the terminals of the switch do I connect the cables that come from the controller, the switches have 3 little thingies where I can connect them.  In the instructable would be step # 3. I have some pics of my mouse. LC stands for left click switch, RC stands for right click stich and the red little squares represent where the little red push button on the switch would be placed on the other side of the picture. thank you very much for your time. Please help.

PS2 controller to PS / 2 mouse: PIC? Arduino? Custom Logic? Answered

I've got an old PlayStation 2 controller which has a broken button, so I was thinking of making some sort of hand-held presenter mouse with one of the thumbsticks. I presume that the thumbstick consists of two potentiometers, and I can easily wire up some microswitches from the PS2 controller or an old ball mouse I've got lying around. The problem is the communication with the PC. I'm studying A-level Electronics, so I understand the protocol, but a logic circuit would be massive unless it was on a custom chip. I've found a microchip that can handle the PS2 communication, but its inputs are for light gates, like you might find in an old ball mouse. The other thing I considered was a PIC or Arduino (which I've been wanting an excuse to play around with for ages). Anyone got any ideas?

Battery holder drop voltages?

Recently my wireless mouse stop working, so I open it to inspect around, and I found out that at the connecting terminal between the battery holder and the mouse PCB, the voltage is only 1V (unplugged from the mouse itself) , but when I take the battery out to measure, each of the battery got 1.5V. And when I measure on the 2 metal ends (of the holder), my multimeter read 1.7V. So, what's wrong with it? Can anyone help me with this? It's really the first time I have a situation like this

Looking for a low voltage LED (mouse LED replacement)

I ran into a problem when changing the LED of a mouse. It seems to output only 1V, and that, of course is not enough to drive the 3V LEDs which I currently have in stock. The problem is, I can't find any LEDs of my preferred color (yellow, green or white) that would be OK with 1V. Closest thing I can find is diffused 1.5V 3mm yellow LEDs, but I doubt that'll do the trick, as the original is 5mm. Any ideas where I could find a LED that'd match my requirements?

Looking for thoughts.

My PC wnt a bit wonky this morning.  Mouse pointer moved around just fine but the system wouldn't recognize any clicks. Well at first i could click on the web browser and open a new tab but that was it. I restarted the system and had the same problem. So i wasn't able to lick to log in. So i tried another mouse and got the same result. Then i tried both mice on different USB connection both on the front and rear of the system. No change. Out of frustration i slammed the mouse down on the keyboard tray a couple of time and then everything started working fine again. Any thoughts on what happened? I suspect it's an issue with the keyboard. Being a wireless keyboard that came with a wireless mouse i think the keyboard had something to do with it. I've had an occasion where the keys stopped working on the keyboard till i moved the receiver around a bit. oh well.

Victor mouse Traps?

I am using the good old VICTOR spring mouse traps. I caught the first two bang with good old peanut butter. The next one i baited with peanut butter. They licked it clean! Not even a speck of peanut butter any where. Tried another victor trap. I thought the 3rd one might be defective? NO! The 4th trap, same thing> My son said I wasn't using enough peanut butter. So I crammed as much inside of it as normal. Then I added a bit more on top and sides. Again they cleaned it all off. Not even a speck left on the trap. Does anyone have a better idea? I feel like i am just feeding the mice. Maybe the first two were baby'sher975383@aol.coms?? And these are cunning adults? I am going to use mouse poison if I can't figure this out. My husband doesn't want poison because they can get in the wall an stink for ever. I do not have a better solution. I would be grateful if anyone has an answer for this!!!  I don't want filthy mice in my house! Thank-You, sugarbear

How to use Mouse.Move()

I am using the new Arduino Due to try and move a mouse on my Macbook pro. On the Arduino website it says that I should be able to just add numbers into Mouse.move(xVal, yVal, wheel). I have tried adding numbers in the xVal and yVal positions ranging from .5 to 1000000, but the mouse never moves. I also am trying to use the code that they have on their website as demo code which takes in voltages from analog ports and puts them into the xVal and yVal. I have set it up with two 1K resistors in series with the analog inputs going into A0 and A1 with a voltage supply of 2.1 V. The amount the mouse moves should depend on how much voltage is entering the Arduino, but I am only getting -6 to 6 V coming into the Arduino. Does anyone have any suggestions about how to make the mouse move with Arduino's demo program or just in general? Thank you so much for the help. Link to Arduino demo code: ... lock#=1 My code: void setup() { Serial.begin(4800); Mouse.begin(); } void loop() { if (analogRead(0) > 500) { Serial.println("Hello"); Mouse.move(100,100,0); } else { Serial.println("Goodbye"); Mouse.move(-100,-100,0); }

Easy Computer Mouse Modification / Repair

The first time I did this modification was about 10 years ago, and this is my second attempt. Both times it was done as a repair and not strictly as a modification. There are actually many advantages to a newly "rewired" mouse such as the mouse button being easier and more convenient to press.  (possibly an inexpensive and simple method to avoid carpal tunnel syndrome?) Anyway, the modification is located on one of my website pages: I've seen a lot of mouse modifications on the Internet and I doubt I was the first one to think of this. **************************************************************************** Edited to Add I finally uploaded a picture to this posting.
