Do the 5200 Trackballs require anykind of maintenance to the ball assembly? Mine works perfect, but I use it alot to play Centipede and Millipede, and I was wondering if I'll eventually need to clean the ball assembly and free it of dirt, dust, and other debris perhaps? Are there brushes, or feelers inside the assembly of this thing that need cleaning?

Have you ever cleaned a mouseball? It should be like that, but with more rollers.

Heh, actually no, I've always had an optical mouse, so I have no experience with cleaning a mouse ball. However, I may take my 5200 trackball apart and figure out how to clean it up, it shouldn't be too hard(I hope).
