8         representative) it doesn't really <italic>feel</italic> like scratching.
9         The only way to get that traditional haptic feedback is to turn your turntable
10         into a mouse device.

12         <para>If you want to do this without harming your mouse nor turntable, the method
13         suggested by the terminatorX logo should be feasible. Optical input devices are
14         known to produce best results in such a scenario. For those interested here's a 
15         <link ref="oldtable.html">document</link> on how I turned my old turntable into
16         a terminatorX device.

19         Luckily a lot of terminatorX users have built their own turntables and I'm really
20         happy to present some of these creations below. Please, if <italic>your</italic> turntable
21         is missing <link ref="mailto:alex@lisas.de">send</link> me some pictures of it
22         so I can add them here. <bold>Thanks</bold> to all contributors!
