Unpossible to win trackball says I.

edit: I know a few people who use them, one or two of them are actually fairly good with them too.

I wouldnt suggest it unless your already handy with one. I prefer a cordless infra red mouse, but they have their own problems, sometimes they lose tracking, sometimes the battery dies.. general stuff like that.


If you were really hardcore you'd use a gyroscopic mouse. :lol:

My father got two degrees out of college, Philosophy and English - he almost flunked out because he was a total pot head. After graduating he took up Shakespearian theater until he met my mom, then he married her and got a job in business sales; after that he did a complete 180 and became this redneck conservative NRA hunter; it wasn't until his 40s that he took up computers which became his ultimate hobby, and then got into gaming where he's played with Thresh and even won cash awards. Last I heard he was talking with Raven developers about level logistics for Quake 4 (wtf)

This has got to be some kind of joke. No dad of a twenty-something knows how to use a computer.
