Re: The mouse that never worked in the afternoon..

Much the same problem occurred with the mighty Amstrad PCW8512 word processing box! If afternoon/evening sunlight got in at the right angle on the diskette drives, all sorts of unhappiness used to occur.

Solution: interpose yourself between the sun and the drives.
