        Well, I have the pad, which has NDY 402631-001 on a sticker on the
back. It's 7.75" wide by 7" high. about 0.5" smaller, in both directions,
than my Sun Optical mouse pad. Hmmm, there are a couple scratches on the
right side... Well, considering how old it probably is...

        I didn't even think of comparing that with my Sun pad. From memory,
I think this one has a coarser grid, but I'm not positive. Let me crack out
my ruler & a magnifying lens...
It appears to be 5 lines per every 2mm.
        My Sun keyboard is a Type 5, But I don't think the optical mouse
came with it. I can check the Sun mouse and pad this weekend...
