    I personally believe I'll leave that kinda problems to some monk who's far more expert than me! I'm at most playing some arcade every now and again. (Read: some incarnation of Tetris, 99% of the time. Although to be completely fair I'm having some frenzy these days for a tiny little game called Erix which used to come preinstalled in some Sony Ericsson mobile phones and of which I found an "improved" Java version: it can be considered as loosely based on the concept of the classic Snake game.)

Even with a trackball by the side of my bed, it would be annoying to have to reach it with a hand, and which one, given that I continuously change position? Well, sort of...
