I have a question which the internet/google didn’t immediately answer for me.
I have a really nice Microsoft (I know that sounds like an oxymoron) USB mouse, but unfortunately the USB cord has given up on it around the plug. My question is thus: Is there anyway of salvaging a mouse that is perfectly fine except for the cable? Is a USB cable able to be repaired at all? I bought a cheap and nasty replacement mouse. But it is cheap and nasty, and so tiny compared to the full bodiedness of the MS one I have. The only upside the the new mouse is that it has a higher sampling rate, which I don’t really care about because I’m more concerned with tendinitis.
I seem to be having lots of trouble with cables, even though I try and be careful with them!
(My expensive DJ headphones have a cable problem. I’ve bought a replacement plug and will try splicing the cable to it, but the headphone is by Sony and they use weird coating on the wires to supposedly stop them from breaking so easily).
