A couple of us took a bridge setup to Anime Blues Con in Memphis. Here are some pics;

At first we were using some Android Tablets for Engineering, Science and Comms. We ended up replacing Science and Engineering with a desktop and a laptop PCs.

Funny tidbit from this event. At one point we were having a problem with one of my mice. So we switched it out with an older one, a mechanical mouse. The "youths" on Helm and the other one next to him on Weapons said, "Hey, this one doesn't have a light either."...

.... I paused for a few seconds and then found myself explaining to these young "Digital Natives" that it was an older mouse and was mechanical, not optical. They were confused but tried it and were happy that it worked, but it was clear that this was their first encounter with a mechanical mouse... [smile]

Posted it elsewhere in a thread discussing problems with tablets, but they are TMax TM9S775's. All of the tablets were really slow, even when we switched to just using them for Comms and one for the Captain(Captains Map or Data) they would start to lag after about halfway into the mission. Haven't had time yet to setup at home and check them out yet though.

Nope, a mechanical mouse has two rollers inside for the ball to move, one for the X axis, one for the Y. I've taken lots of them apart for cleaning/repair. [smile] 

I R Old Tech... [wink]

what u mean nope?

on the rollers are wheels with slots, next to but not touching are some kind of readers, there are no direct mechanical to electrical transfer like in a driving paddle for the Atari 2600( not the regular peddles which are just pots). Now that is odd to look inside, they have sliding metal contacts.
