I used to be ( actually I still am) a postgrad at UTS, and I did a fair
teaching there (but I don't teach anymore), but this incident with the mouse
balls and the simms occured just before I started my postgrad, I got some
for setting up the PC labs for electrical eng.
We had a similar incident in a lab of Alphas at UNSW that I set up - big
official opening, politician hits power switch - zip...
Turns out some little bugger had not only swiped the RAM, but the ALPHA
processors from 24 machines....
The question I have to ask is... WHY ???
