7     the feedback I get is representative) it doesn't really 
8     <italic>feel</italic> like scratching. The only way to get that traditional
9     haptic feedback is to turn your turntable into a mouse device.</para>
10     <para>If you want to do this without harming your mouse nor turntable, the
11     method suggested by the terminatorX logo should be feasible. Optical input
12     devices are known to produce best results in such a scenario. For those
13     interested here's a 
14     <link ref='oldtable.html'>document</link> on how I turned my old turntable
15     into a terminatorX device.</para>
16     <para>Luckily a lot of terminatorX users have built their own turntables
17     and I'm really happy to present some of these creations below. Please, if 
18     <italic>your</italic>turntable is missing 
19     <link ref='mailto:alex@lisas.de'>send</link> me some pictures of it so I can
20     add them here.
