Can someone draw me a... Jitter? How would a Jitter look like? It is certainly a Bad guy(or girl?) since The Jitter is our enemy #1 with its special magnetic field weapon.  On the Good side, our knight Dremel and Electrical Tape soldiers help us fight for the Simtiq Dream in a world of LCD panels, Wacom sensors and Cable forests.  Tongue

I would like to populate the Wiki with a few doodles here and there from you guys that represents the stuff you encountered in your fantastic BongoFish journey.  In a section for jitter (for example), why not display a couple of Jitter-Monster drawings?

While many people believe in the myth that jitter is caused by interference from the circuit boards, this is not true.
Jitter is an annoying side effect from the presence of Jitterbugs. These bugs have been brought in from Africa in a banana transport.
The weather in Europe and most of the US is too harsh for them to survive.
However, when they accidentally end up in someones home, they are very resilient and hard to get rid of.

Jitterbugs usually hide in dark corners near radios, as they are attracted by various types of music, like Jive and East Coast Swing and all that jazz.
They also find their groove in electromagnetic fields, such as caused by the wacom sensor and pen, and circuit boards. They feed of the rhythm, causing interference, which results in jitter in the case of the wacom tablets.

A good way to avoid jitterbugs, is to shield as much stuff as possible with aluminium foil. The jitterbugs cannot penetrate this stuff, and will give up eventually.
