Some interesting mice

You probably take your mouse for granted, but they've come a long way.

Here are a few notable mice through history:

First up, the first mouse ever:

Invented by Douglas Engelbart and demonstrated at the Fall Joint Computer Expo in San Francisco on December 9, 1968. Here is the patent design (click to enlarge):

Next, a Soviet design -- yeah, they had their own little computer industry going for a while too:

Not bad considering we're talking about the Soviet Union -- in the 80s -- here. Notice the construction. If these mice were anything like some other Soviet products, they were probably designed to survive a hell of a beating.

And finally, the first Microsoft mouse:

I thought it was pretty interesting how similar it is to the Soviet mouse. Insert your own joke here.

I found a friend called Crianhas she helped me so much that one time when I will be stronger and more powerful and get lots of flyff penya. I started to build it up without help and any flyff money, my friend helped a little but I did most of the work. My assist is level 57 and it is getting harder and harder, but my friends who use flyff gold to level me are the greatest. There is one thing and that it is addictive to buy flyff penya. My life as a vagrant began as being hard and lost without knowing but the people and the giant penguin which helped me to get cheap penya to power my assist.
