Footy fever!

Well it’s almost time once again for the frenetic football thrash they call the World Cup and for those who want to get more involved this year I highly recommend Nigel Thomas’ Ltrack program.

I remember looking at a bit of software called Sensiva a while back which let you control your computer using a nifty method of on screen commands with your right mouse button. It was very cool, but didn’t work brilliantly and seemed a little too big to hover around in memory. Now I’ve just come across this neat little alternative freeware called Stroke-it! which does it better, is smaller and doesn’t cost the $19.95 of Sensiva. It’s the first cool…
