404 Tech Support to the Rescue – netbook touchpad annoyances

Jason overheard me grumbling with a friend about an annoying problem we both had with our netbooks- that the touchpad on them, even at the lowest sensitivity setting, picks up accidental brushes of our palms when typing (especially when typing in a hurry). The result was the cursor jumps to somewhere unexpected, and (worst case scenario) highlights a huge section of the document for overtyping. Ack. He had already tracked down a solution, and sent it my way. I felt like I should share. :)
