            No, but it's easily diagnosed with a meter. It shows up as a standard head code, caught easily by just about anyone.

              They neglected to mention adjustment of the hantoon rantoon, the spanish flutes, and the dual chromed gofaster.

                No need to waste time on that stuff - any decent mechanic would already know the basics!

                  But quite necessary if you want that "A.S.S.H.E.A.D Certified" patch on your shirt.

                    That has been on here many time. The original is actually a paper from the 40's and has been redone many times.


                    Another one:

                    IBM Mouse Balls...
                    "Memo of the Month," From The Washington Monthly, January/February 1991, page 24:

                    This is an actual alert to IBM Field Engineers that went out to all IBM Branch Offices. The person who wrote it was very serious. The rest of us find it rather funny.

                    Abstract: Mouse Balls Available as FRU (Field Replacement Unit)

                    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 properly 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 upon manufacturer of the mouse. Foreign balls can be replaced using the pop-off method. Domestic balls are replaced 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 re-order, specify one of the following:

                    P/N 33F8462 - Domestic Mouse Balls
                    P/N 33F8461 - Foreign Mouse Balls
