I've had it for over 13 years, and it stopped working properly tonight.
It's my Microsoft InteliMouse, the first LED mouse commercially available in the UK.
I bought it for £80 in 1999 when I worked in Comet (an electrical retailer in the UK, I had to pay my student debts back somehow), and it's worked perfectly ever since, until tonight.
The Right Mouse Button has stopped working. I didn't realise how much the efficient operation of a Windows™ computer relies on the availability of an operational right mouse button.
I know that the same contextual menus can be brought up by using the left mouse button and the menu key on the keyboard, but that's TWO actions rather than the single right button click, and I find it infuriating.
Off to Dick Smith tomorrow to get it replaced. I suppose 13 years isn't too bad, but it still grates.
