I used to have a similar trackball. It was a trackball, three real buttons, and
then two wheels. Most apps I could scroll up and down with the first, and left
and right with the second. (Including most gtk1 apps.) It was pretty nice.
Alas, the thing died, and radio shack, who I bought it from, no longer was
selling them. So, Im now stuck with a llama compaq branded balless mouse.

*sigh* I hate comapq.
