    I dusted off my little used graphics table last night, updated the drivers, and installed it on the laptop which I mostly use for the net these days.

    I'd forgotten how good it was to use the graphics tablet to navigate the web. I dislke the mouse, and absolutely HATE using the touchpad.

    The graphics tablet has this pencil type thing which replaces the mouse, and a scroll wheel for scrolling up and down. You can also write characters in freehand, which are converted to computer characters. (but I must admit that typing on the keyboard is quicker)

    I have a VIACOM Graphire 4. (EDIT it's a WACOM)
    It's magic.

    If you've never used one of these thingies for the internet, give it a try. you'll probably love it.

    Cheers,
    Eric G.

    I used to use my graphics tablet for the same sort of thing, but then my brother stole it back.

      I smiled at this Anti. It wasn't actually yours then, was it? Your brother reclaimed what was his wink

      And nice one Eric. I've never used one. I favour the mouse but perhaps I should try a graphics pad out. I like technology. The fact that I can't work a lot of if does not reduce my fascination smile

    Would love to pick up a graphic tablet... I'm not crazy about this touchpad at all.

    I bought a Wacom graphics tablet quite a while ago. And my wife stole it off me.

    IDK. Never tried a tablet. I am pretty happy with a good mouse. Don't like touchpad, but can live with it for some time if needed. What really drives me nuts is IBM-style stick, that is on my wife's work notebook. Grrrrrr... smile

      Is that the thing right in the middle of the keys?

        We used to call that a clit-mouse smile

        P.S. LOVING my Wacom pen interface. Much more natural and intuitive than a mouse or trackpad.
        cheers, Eric G.

          lol Eric. You're on form. Or maybe not. No man knows where that is so I doubt most guys have even noticed the fact that there may be one straight in front of their ... face wink

    Please don't stalk me. I haven't done anything wrong! I promise! We were only talking about mice and graphics tablets!

    Yes, I love my ol' Intuos 2 Wacom tablet. I don't do digital artwork anymore so I don't use it much, but I did enjoy using the pen as a mouse. I need to order some new tips, hmm.
