Dell touchpad! STOP! DOING! THAT!

I have a Dell laptop. Oftentimes, while "mousing around" using the touchpad, it will unintentionally highlight things. This is a behavior that I never, ever want. Also, sometimes it will unintentionally "grab on to things," like graphics on a webpage, and try to drag them around. I do not ever want to highlight or grab things using the touchpad. This "feature" messes me up CONSTANTLY. My last Dell laptop did the same thing. Is there any way to turn this "feature" off permanently?

What do I wear to keep warm at work?

I work in a cold environment. Just a thermal under my shirt and knee-high socks under my jeans isn't keeping me warm enough. What do you wear, o MeFites who work in cold storage, skating rinks, are in boot camp in the middle of winter, or just live in colder climates than this Southern Californian? (Preferably clothing items that won't bulk me up under my uniform... so, no bulky pajamas under my jeans, please.)

can you get injuries from elliptical trainers?

A recent conversation advised (possibly anecdotal) info that elliptical trainers can create foot numbness (it happens to me too) and lead to hip problems.

Do-not-call legalities?

Several years ago, I asked a telemarketer to be placed on their "Do not call list." The telemarketer hung up on me before I could ask for a copy of their do-not-call policy, but I did not receive any calls for several years. Now they are calling again incessantly. I have not answered any of their calls. Are they in violation of the FCC's telemarketing laws, since I have technically asked to be put on their company-specific do not call list?
