It's great to be talking about these keyboards again! Yes, mine is a qwerty keyboard. But, I do use the Dvorak layout. At the time I bought my TS, I only knew how to type qwerty, so that was naturally my choice. After some time, however, I read of the benefits of using Dvorak, and I forced myself to...

Hi Torben! My keyboard is the TS LP... at the time I bought it, Fingerworks was selling the tent stand as an optional accessory. I didn't buy one then, but over the years I've made a few different tent stands of my own. Some pictures are here: http://sites.google.com/site/madisonnet/fingerworks So, ...

New Ribbon Cable

Hi Everyone. Lately I've been experiencing more discomfort at my desk, so I've been rethinking my ergonomic setup, and trying different tent stands, chair and monitor adjustment, and keyboard placement. I finally (after years of thinking about it) ordered a longer ribbon cable for my TS and I just i...

Thank you, Torben, for all the effort you are putting forth.

I have often read your requests for help. Unfortunately, I don't have the web skills necessary to truly lend a hand. So, at this point, all I can do is offer a mighty "Thank you".

That does look interesting. One thing that I've wondered about ever since I started learning to use my TouchStream is the "commonality" of gestures. If you compare the touchscreen computers, the iGesture Pad, the Mac laptops, the iPhone, Blackberry... whatever, they all have some sort of touch inter...

I'm curious. You mentioned the drawbacks of it on a "PC". But, I wonder what about running Linux on a Apple Hardware? Would it work then? Or, what about running Windows on Apple Hardware? Finally, what about virtualizing Linux or Windows under a Virtual machine within MacOS. I wonder if that would w...

Hi Lee. What application are you trying to zoom? I use various CAD programs at my job, and I use my Touchstream every day, and the zooming is always an interesting thing. Sometimes I use the middle wheel scroll (four fingers rolling up and down), sometimes I use the five finger expand & contract. Bu...

A follow up report: I have had much more success using the shift-keypress-click method. I don't do it all the time, but whenever I have the problem where it's not remembering the shift, I'll do shift-keypress-click and it works more often than not. I think some of my trouble may be related to static...

Time to answer my own question: The problem was the Windows new device recognition. Basically, whenever I tried to transfer my new settings to the keyboard, it would start doing it, then Windows came up asking me to insert the driver disk. I kept dismissing that window (cancel) thinking that it didn...

That's exactly the type of thing I was looking for.

By the way... it looks like you have some CAD symbols there. What software do you use?

A few questions:

What would the finished external USB keyboard look like? Do you have pictures?

Can these be used on Linux/Windows as well as Mac?

What would be the approximate price?

Can I get my name on an early signup list?

Hmmm... I never thought about actually having gloves on the fingertips while using the TS. I have a pair of brown cotton "jersey gloves" that I use every day to help keep my hands warm, but I have cut off the fingers so that I can use the TS.

Keep us posted if you find any good gloves.

Torben, the ads at the bottom of the page are just fine with me. This is the nicest way to place ads, and is definitely the cleanest, and most un-obtrusive way of doing it.

I missed the UPS truck when they came. So, I found the package stuck in my door. I'll have to call PC Universe again and see about re-shipping it. I really don't want to pay the shipping cost myself, though.
