touchy touchpad (was: Re: [humanism-174] Religion & Politics)

Though I have Linux on my laptop, I have the same problem accidentally
brushing the touchpad which then invokes some unintended action.  To
avoid this happening, I move the mouse cursor onto the wallpaper
(desktop/background)­ when typing.  You're probably not using Linux, so I
can't say for sure that this same strategy will work for you.  You'll
have to try it.  The basic idea is to put the mouse cursor somewhere,
use the touchpad, and see if the focus changes.  If it doesn't, that's
what you want.

I'd be interested to know what works on your system (and what system--
Vista, OS X, etc.) you have.  Please lemme know.
