Editorial This article describes some of my annoyances in computing. If you had any problems reading this article, then skip this one. It will only be a waste of your time. There are a lot of annoying things in the wonderful world of computing. Of course, nothing is perfect, but that doesn't mean we are not allowed to complain and scream and throw our keyboards at our monitors when yet another irritation pops up.

RE: Trackballs and the myth

I dislike the trackballs you control with your thumb. I have an old Logitech Marble FX and all I know is that it's such a relief to come back to it after spending a lot of time with a mouse. It's just so comfortable. However, if the table is not the right height then it will put a lot of strain on your wrist, but then again, so will a mouse.

It is however slower than a mouse for most operations, but I prefer the comfort I get from it. I also have a mouse and a tablet connected to the computer since they are good for different tasks.
