"Accessibility during earthquakes," anyone?

Gunked-up rollers on a mouse also cause erratic behavior. (For *really*
erratic behavior, clean different amounts of gunk off each roller.)

How about creating a small script that moves (shakes) an entire
(test)page erratic on screen? Trying to hit a link with a mouse can
be made as easy or hard as one may wish.
Might work as test-bed for more than just hand tremors.
