Don't know any rituals but I have really bad habit of snapping my fingers (only left hand) while being on computer or doing something where I don't need my left hand.

Well, if I want to have good night sleep, I NEED to brush my teeth.

This. I always read Mickey Mouse/Donald Duck comics while bringing Obama into the white house.

That description

I always take my cellphone to the toilet. It has games, books, everything.

Other than that, I always have to use a mouse on my laptop. Trackpads annoy the everliving fuck out of me.

@Panki great description, love it.

@Sty trackpads are great... if you don't mind working about 10 times slower.

Or randomly touching it with your palm and clicking all around while typing.

Don't fucking tell me about it.

For some reason, my trackpad will turn back on after I lock my laptop. So everytime I put in my password, my trackpad turns back on.
And I keep forgetting to turn it back off.

Uninstall trackpad driver.

That would seem logical... But I don't always have the ability to use my mouse. Sometimes my trackpad is all I have.

Problem is, there was a setting somewhere that disabled it permanently. But I forgot where it was... It was some non-Windows, non-microsoft software though.

Well yes, but that's too much of a hassle every time I want to turn on my trackpad :biggrin: Plus, how am I supposed to do that when my trackpad doesn't work?
