A couple of category suggestions...

Do you suppose we should have a "Meta-discussions" category for people to ask questions or make suggestions about this forum? Otherwise, people are likely to post unrelated questions wherever they see the most traffic. (As I am with this very post. :-)) I'd also like to see a "News about Fingerworks...

"Surplus" MacNTouch keyboards?

I seem to remember someone on The Ex-Forum mentioning a stash of MacNTouch keyboards left over from some big project. Does anyone here remember what the story was?

Well, I don't know how completely fixed it is, but it's at least showing accurate update times for threads and groups. It's a little encouraging to see things getting better rather than worse.

Is this where that large OEM MacNTouch order went?

Has anyone else posted a link to http://stenovations.com/writer-pic.htm ? It looks like it's based on a relabeled MacNTouch, and since they say that they "have an inventory" of their product, I'm speculating that that batch of panels may no longer be headed for the surplus market. Looks like another...

Hi, I'd like to be able to use both sides of my TouchStream for mousing, but it appears that you can only enable one at a time.
