Touchscreen scrolling: an exercise in insanity?

I'm curious -- how are you all getting along with your touchscreen? Tapping is pretty good (although "e" and "w" on the keyboard in landscape mode requires more pressure), but scrolling is very difficult for me. For example when I tried to change the time zone, it kept selecting the first thing I put my finger on instead of sensing that I was starting to scroll. This pretty much happens every time I try to scroll. I'd say I'm averaging one in seven on getting it to work correctly.The calibration feature is great -- for taps. I realize this is a $100 device and it's a resistive touchscreen, but yikes!Anyone having similar results?

I didn't have a stylus handy so tried using the plastic clip off a ballpoint pen cap and it works fine.. but scrolling has been driving me nuts in general. Works much better with a stylus.
I installed that, then couldn't get the device to recognise music or photo files.. went back to the original Eiken OS for now.[quote name='esunday;3863]Since installing EcoTox's most recent stable release' date=' which includes Eken's latest Firmware updates, the touch screen seems much easier to use, seems more sensitive to subtle inputs.[/QUOTE']
The more I use it, with or without a stylus, the better I get at scrolling.. stylus still seems to work the best however.[quote name='linuxluver;15295]I make sure to calibrate the screen as accurately as possible first' date=' then to scroll I use the back of my finger nail to flick up and down. It works well. Much better then the fleshy part of your finger.[/QUOTE']
