 The following is an ACTUAL ALERT to IBM field engineers that was
 sent out recently. It pertains to a certain computer accessory part
 replacement. It went out to all IBM branch offices. The person who
 wrote it was quite serious and evidently didn't see the humor in it!!!

  ********************************************

 Mouse balls are now available as FRU. Therefore, if a mouse fails to
 operate or should it perform erratically, it may need a ball
 replacement. Because of the delicate nature of this procedure,
 replacement of mouse balls should only be attempted by trained
 personnel.

 Before proceeding, determine the type of mouse balls by examining the
 underside of the mouse. Domestic balls will be larger and harder than
 foreign balls. Ball removal procedures differ depending on the
 manufacturer of the mouse. Foreign balls can be replaced using the
 pop-off method. Domestic balls are replaced by using the twist-off
 method. Mouse balls are not usually static sensitive. However,
 excessive handling can result in sudden discharge. Upon completion of
 ball replacement the mouse may be used immediately.

 It is recommended that each replacer have a pair of spare balls for
 maintaining optimum customer satisfaction, and that any customer missing
 his balls should suspect local personnel of removing these necessary
 items.

 To reorder, specify one of the following:

   P/N 33F8462--domestic balls
   P/N 33F8461--foreign balls
