Have you considered looking into a program called MyPaint? It is very simple, and you can do some great effects with it like shading and layers. But, it doesn't have the good shape tools like MS paint. But it is a LOT simpler than the GIMP...
Haha. Reminds me how I got a disk out of my computer's drive with scissors. I've got one of those slide-in disk drives, where there's no tray. And the disk I put in was one of those half-sized ones that come with phones. I dunno why I did it or how I managed to get it out.
Heh, sometimes, they still have and "eject" hole, we had similar drives where I work, nice in that it discouraged kids from just yanking on the drive drawers, but a nuisance when they figured out how to stuff random junk inside! =^^=
Yeah, it seems only british-german companies do it nowadays... Rolls-Royce are all over them (every car in the Rolls lineup has them ) and for some reason, Vauxhall too [link] I for one welcome our new reverse-hinged overlords
