this is why I have a bright yellow double-size pointer ;) I thought it looked 
a bit silly when I first saw someone with it, but when I tried it myself it 
just made so much *sense* - I always know where it is now, and don't have to 
wave it around to find it.

oh, and when my soc project is done you'll be able to turn off the annoying 
scroll-change-desktop feature. it might even end up off by default...
