Does this actually work?
Asking for a friend
@TheSecretSavage, can't tell if serious, I can assure you the thing you copy isn't being stored in the mouse, so no it wouldn't work
@MrJojo, hmmmm usb mice. Now there is an invention.
Operator get me the president of computers.
@MadJac, well actually any mouse you plug into a USB port on your computer is a USB mouse, what you're thinking of would be a mouse/flash drive combo
@MrJojo, lol. Yeah that's exactly what I meant. I'm so embarrassed. At least I'm not pursuing a career in the IT field...awwww shoot. I'm a network specialist.
@TheSecretSavage, please for the love of god be joking
@MadJac, oh nice, how's that working out for you, do you like it? I'm currently finishing my final semester for my IT degree myself, with a focus on programming and database tech
@MrJojo, no I'm not working yet. I'm currently doing my internship to get an associate, then I go in to my bachelor's. I like networking though. I'm currently taking visual studio, (programing) and hate it. So good luck with that.
@MadJac, oh that's cool, good to see you enjoy it. That's the interesting thing about IT is it is such a broad field there's so many concentrations to choose from between programming, networking, security, etc. yet they all interact with one another.
And thanks I will definitely need that luck since job hunting is next haha, good luck to you as well I hope all goes well with your studies!
@MadJac, the fun-ness of vs is greatly dependant upon your instructor. If you have someone who knows how to teach and give projects other than sorting numbers it's actually a fun challenge
@TheSecretSavage, Shouldn't work because the mouse is set up to be an output only device. Nothing can go from the computer to the mouse
@MrJojo, I'm actually an IT specialist myself. I find it fun. My main hobby is also programming, but... ya know, fun ^_^.
I had some employment in the field within 7 months of graduation, and with a year salary and benefits, so there definitely is work out there. Just... ya know... git gud, if you haven't already.
@MrJojo, Oh, and one actual piece of advice, get certifications. The degree in this field is only one, admittedly smaller piece of the employable package. Employers will look to see if you have any certifications in any specific areas related to the job. If you do, you look a f* ton better right out of college than someone who just has the degree.
@TheSecretSavage, all except the last one.
@xir1111011, yep that's one of the reasons I chose IT it's a field that's just gonna get bigger with more opportunities every day.
And thank you I was actually thinking about certifications recently, and have been seeing mixed feelings about them through my search on the web, so I appreciate getting input from someone with work experience.
You'll prolly want to start with the A+. It's the easiest to get, and a ton of entry-level positions have it as either a requirement or a plus.
@MrJojo, any *Modern* mouse.
@TheSecretSavage, I thought the "asking for a friend" was a good hint that I was joking...
@TheSecretSavage, I remember there being a Linus tech tips video on something that did this. I think it was a piece of software though not an actual mouse.
I almost said what if this worked, then remembered there no point since flash drives are a thing.
@Vault Tec, but what if the mouse doubled as a flash drive?
"He's beginning to believe"
This is a clever repost in which they took out the story and put in pictures of brains.
I work in a tech store and believe me when I say people have asked me about far stupider ways to transfer files.
Or use your phone and send it to yourself as an email, because all the machines are connected and you're too lazy to move.
@efil ym kcvF, wouldn't that be the equivalent of the top one though?
