We've used touchscreen toughbooks here for years, I always have one or two on my desk. Generally use a finger, a stylus, or the back end of a pen to jab away at the screens.
Problem is I then start jabbing away at the monitor of my desktop too, always takes a few prods before I realise it's never going to work.
Lots of the engineers use the business end of pens to work their toughbooks because they always lose the styluses. Some of the screens have so much ink on them it can be hard to work out what is supposed to be showing.
Some men are born mediocre, some men achieve mediocrity, and some men have mediocrity thrust upon them.
I don't, because my monitors are too far away to reach without leaning forward. Also, my skin is naturally a bit greasy so I leave fingerprints on devices if I touch them with my fingers, and that's bad so I don't. I do touch it with the blunt end of a pen or pencil when I'm pointing things out to colleagues, though.
If you can't see the fingerprints until you turn the screen off then really, no, it's not a big deal.
I used to be a Class, but after some time in the CP Q&A , i saw no value in the Structure of classes. Some say i am an Enumeration but others dispute that and say i am an Interface but honestly speaking i think i am just a Delegate because i don't see any common type system.
NEVER, what kind of monster would do that? It's like touching someone's glasses - don't do that.
I used to understand though, with a CRT the "picture" is much further away than the glass, so if you try to stop at some distance from it you can still end up poking it. And CRTs were sturdy and easy to wipe off anyway. But now with flat screens? If you touch it, f*** you. You can clearly see where it is, wiping the non-glossy ones is a pain, and poking them hard enough can cause damage.
My peeve is when people refuse to actually say something about XYZ they're trying to convey, but rather most hover over you to tell you where to click, while you act as the brainless extension of their mind, simply because they can't communicate and they lock up and don't know what to say unless they make you point and click for them.
Communication is a lost art in the information age.
Well long time no see! What you been up to? As it turns out, you're stuck with me for a few months while I dust off the cobwebs and play developer again to make an HTML5 project that's gonna help send my arse to Los Angeles.
