Default trackball roll direction for dates/times

Does anyone else find it counter-intuitive?

If you're in calendar and you press "enter" to instead of "c" to put a calendar entry in quickly without actually opening up a new screen, scrolling up will make the time earlier, which makes sense to me and is how it was with the scroll wheel on the 8703.

however, when you press "c" to compose a calendar entry, you have to scroll the opposite direction, down, to make an earlier date or time. It's definitely counter intuitive for me. It's also tough because it's not consistent within calendar.

Heh. I thought it was just me. I always roll the wrong way first. Definitely counter-intuitive, at least for me.
If your thumbs don't hurt, you're not doing it right.

I haven't noticed that specifically but I always scroll the wrong way w/ time and date...drives me crazy! It's become a little game to see if I can remember the correct direction for the time/date I want.
