Mouse problem solved

The scrolling wheel on my Logitech MX Revolution wireless mouse quit working a couple of days ago and ever since I've been constantly reminded of how much I used that wheel.

I don't suppose I have much right to complain, considering that I've been using the mouse since June 20, 2008 - coming up on eight years.

I looked for a software solution and checked a few forums (in Latin, that should probably be forii) for insight. I updated the Logitech Set Point software to no avail.

Then I tried the simplest solution - blow eight years worth of accumulated dust and crud out with compressed air.

Voila! Full function was restored. I love it when I can actually solve a problem and not make it worse.
