Re: foot pedal mice, and the amusement they're causing on this list.
A co-worker has an extreme case of RSI (repetitive stress injuries) from
He put his trackball on the floor, and navigates with his toes. He
said it took a while to get used to, but now he's as fast and as accurate
as he ever was with the mouse, and it keeps his wrists in good shape.
And believe me, when you're fighting a bad case of RSI, whatever keeps
you working without causing you furhter pain is a good thing. No giggles
Its kind of unnerving watching him at his desk, tho. The mouse pointer moves
and pulls down menus, and his hands never leave the keyword....
