I do actually use several wood styluses in addition to the originally
supplied one of my MP2100-d.
Started doing that because of scratches made by the original stylus tip
(i suspect grit caught between tip and display), just when i made
energetic big strokes to scrub out several lines of text together...

The wood styluses don't seem to be that prone to making scratches.
Also i like the feel of finely sanded and paper-polished wood styluses
very much. The tip i prepare with a pencil sharpener, finishing it by
rotating on coarse paper (blotting paper, newspaper) or on another
piece of slightly softer wood, until it becomes a nice round shape of
about 1/2 to 1 mm diameter.

Someone said earlier that real Geeks don't do wood work. 8^)
Opinions, anyone?

Care to visit me for having a look?
Or lend me a digital camera so i'll show the world... (^8
