    I was just looking at the NuLoooq Do you like the software? I have a nostromo n52 that I’ve been using, but it only has shortcuts for ACR and the software is limited for mac (doens’t have program aware shortcuts) but a left hand defice is needed for speed – with the tablet on the right.

    Oh, wait – did you guys see the several different suppliers for florescent light sources? I thought that the ones that wrapped up were pretty slick, but I’d want to hear a review of them before i tried it.
