Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I have a wonky computer mouse. For a variety of reasons I am finicky about my mice so I'd like to keep this one.
Sadly its left-button has become somewhat unresponsive. I've disassembled it and found that the left mouse button micro-switch needs to be depressed more. To this end I put a blob of UHU glue on the end of the protrusion that hits the switch and waited until it dried before putting it back together; this worked great for an evening... right until the glue, being a malleable resin, flattened into a sheet after goodness knows how many clicks. Then the left-button stopped working again.
I'm thinking I need some kind of sticky and very tiny thing (a cube 1mmx1mmx1mm would be ideal) that I can affix to the protrusion hitting the switch, but I can't imagine what I can get my hands on. Preferably a household or office item, of course...
Would superglue work? In my experience it tends to be brittle when I've tried to use it as a dried solid to fill gaps rather than just an adhesive layer (don't look at me like that). Sadly the contact area looks to be very small.
