it's happened to me, too!

My LP has failed. :cry: Sparks have been flying around the office during the last couple months. I try remembering to discharge myself before touching the LP. But it had one too many zaps. The left side doesn't work at all. Diagnotistics puts an "L" for every sensor on the left. The right side works...

what would I do without a Touchstream?

The failure of one of my LPs has got me thinking about the future. I have a love/hate relationship with the keyboard. I love the pointing, gestures, and mapping all needed keys to within one key of home row. The gesture editor is the ultimate in customizing. But I hate touch typing - even after 2.5 ...

use both sides

I feel the same way about moving keys closer to home row. All keys should be within one key of home row! But you're only using half of your keyboard. You're using your right hand a lot more than your left. I have right-hand chords that turn on the numberpad, punctpad, and symbolpad. That doubles the...

a new alternative - AlphaGrip

AlphaGrip is an alternative keyboard that was recently released. This is not a solution for those needing or wanting zero-force keyboard. But it does have lots of features that I am looking for. ⋅ It has much fewer keys and uses modifiers to get the other keys of a standard keyboard; that...

Re: Using Multitouch Utils with Windows 7 (x64) ?

I was surprised when XWinder worked in my Vista. It must be using the standard HID USB interface to get that cool functionality. XWinder uses thumb-index-pinky gestures to move and resize windows.

Re: User Poll: Are you still using your FingerWorks device?

I use my TouchStream LPs exclusively. I have two - one at home and one at work.

I've been configuring my TouchStream using VirtualBox for some time. But I did not know about the tweak to the USB settings. The automatic handling of the USB connection is wonderful.

I never heard of sniping. Now all those lost auctions make sense. I suspected some automated software was the culprit. In the last seconds of an auction, dozens of bids by one or two people appear, and one wins just at the end and only a few dollars more than my max bid. Definitely left a bad taste ...

The only way I know how to minimize drift is resting palms, and resting fingers on the dimples every few words. Gestures bring all keys around home row, so mobility is not needed. My fingers can reach all the keys around home row - with a big exception. My pinkies have to stretch too much to reach t...

Re: Trouble with my TS LP

Yes, clean the surface even if it looks clean. I thought my keyboard was toast when it was acting odd, causing havoc on my computer. After cleaning it was working like new again. I have no idea what invisible particles were on the surface; but I'm glad it started working again.

Caution! Spurious output from the keyboard could be from static electricity. It's very much the time of year for that in the northern hemisphere, and it's constantly a worry.
