I've misplaced the link to the wiki entry, and I can't find the URL 
again :-/

I went to the wiki at, and no matter what I search 
for (mouse tweaks, mouse, mouse settings, etc) it doesn't find anything.

In the sense of teaching me to fish instead of just giving me one, how 
would one find the wiki entry for mouse tweaking in the first place? 
Last time I visited it (and bookmarked it) was because you gave me the 
URL in an email to me.
