Re: Fingerworks Mini for sale on eBay

The first post of each user requires approval. Apologies for not approving sooner!
In fact, now that registration is done manually, this approval step is no longer needed. I will turn that off now.

Re: Kyrstellaine

It's been a good run for the Touchstream keyboards. But at this point, they've been gone for longer than they've been around. Ouch. Seriously, I had not realized that. What a revelation! Thank you for opening my eyes. Frankly I don't think we'll see anything like the TouchStream ever again. Apple g...

Re: Buying remaining devices from University of Delaware?

Hello Minox, I'm just curious what the current situation is. Have you had a chance to evaluate the equipment?

Re: Kyrstellaine

Dammit Dustin, now you got me looking at TypeMatrix keyboards! If they made a wireless version I'd be all over it already. It's been a long time since I last looked at that. The prices seem to have gone down a fair bit; certainly they're more affordable than the FW devices (dammit again!). Don't you...

Re: Our forum is under spam attack again

With any luck, the "Bad Behavior" plugin that I know and love from WordPress would also be available for phpBB so that might be a solution:

Re: Fully working FingerWorks software in a virtual machine

Yes you're right, it is "just" Java. But the problem is that the FingerWorks software was written to work on a (now) very old Java version, so the software won't run on modern Java's anymore. What's worse, the old (FW-compatible) Java won't run on newer OS versions like WinVista, Win7, and...

Re: Annoying automatic left/right hand recognition, iGesture

Anyway, thanks @all for commiserating. Hey that is the very least we can do, David... :( I'm wondering whether this can be a hardware malfunction, because if it were software (or firmware, same thing) then it would be a consistent behaviour. Do you have the FW software installed ? Is there any chan...

Re: Fully working FingerWorks software in a virtual machine

Hey all,
I'm currently setting up a VirtualBox installation using Windows XP, with the explicit purpose of creating a FingerWorks maintenance image. Send me a PM if you're interested.

Re: Annoying automatic left/right hand recognition, iGesture

If you suspect it's neither a configuration nor a hardware fault, then try to adjust the "hand size" setting. On my TSLP, I found that the medium hand size worked better for me even though I do have fairly large hands. Keep in mind that the hand size looks smaller of course when you bend y...

Re: Annoying automatic left/right hand recognition, iGesture

I'm really sorry to hear that this problem hasn't been solved yet, David. It's good that you post again. - Have you run the device diagnostics, does the board pass with all green sensors? - Have you tried a complete software reset, i.e. load the default firmware onto the device again? This will wipe...

Re: Buying remaining devices from University of Delaware?

Thank you Eben, but Minox beat you to it :-) I did not decide this; he was simply first. Like you, he offered to accept the lot and salvage as much as possible, as well as taking care of the remains for the future. He's also got the skills and equipment to do repairs, so I am sure that it will be go...

Buying remaining devices from University of Delaware?

I've received a message from the University of Delaware with an offer to buy the FingerWorks devices that were left over in Elias' and Westerman's old lab spaces. It's a very interesting offer and I will post details later -- but I wanted to get the word out to get your attention. UPDATE: Here is th...
