    I think I licked my ball too much. When I push down it no longer registers. I think lint and junk got in there because I have it in my pocket.

    A~via BB d(wap.pinstack.com)~oh! My mind is so in the gutter! Just thought of the post concerning drilling the pearl!!! So it is ok to lick your ball and drill your pearl? I see me getting kicked off of pinstack for this but it sure is funny!!

    well, you can always try a lil compressed air, that'll clear out all the junk in the trunk...which is a by product of people licking the balls...

    About the trackball, I wonder if there is any thing or anyway we can make the balls brighter ? Cause they become darker and darker covered with dust, skin oil... that make them look dirty. Or do we have to replace with the new ones ?

    Tks alot. I thought that too, but I dare not to try once , cause alcohol is really dangerous to the machine and all its components inside. The only way is to take off the ball and let alcohol work only on the ball. But how can we take off the ball ! . Somebody helps .pls ?

    khillyer you may not want to link to that site since it's against forum policy.

    Here's this thread not as detailed but it works.

    A small amount of alcohol is probably less risky then taking the ball apart. Good chance of breaking the delicate parts if its not done right.
