[WriteLog] keyboard

I have a touchpad on the laptop and use it when I am too lazy to get 
out the wireless mouse, or am working where there is no surface 
available to run a mouse over. I never could get used to the 
trackball I tried. So this is not a direct comparison. The touchpad 
required an adjustment period before I felt comfortable with it. I 
still feel less accurate with it and once in a while I will still 
bump it with a trailing finger and jump the cursor halfway across the 
screen. I have never felt comfortable enough with it to use it during 
a contest. YMMV
