Programming on a Tablet PC


I’ve made a concerted effort to try programming in my “off hours” on the Tablet PC…in slate mode…without a keyboard…or external monitor. (Yeah, sounds crazy, but I really wanted to understand what it’s like.) How’s it going? It’s passable. via

Wow, not for me. I’ve worked with both a convertible and a slate Tablet PC and I vastly prefer the convertible, precisely because I found programming with pen impossible. One of the two thousand projects I have on the stack of “things to do in my copious spare time” is a customizable pen keyboard / input editor, precisely so I could dedicate virtual keys to, say, { and } characters. With such a thing, I could imagine programming with pen.

Someone’s spoofing me

F’ing A — I’ve begun receiving bounced email messages indicating that someone’s using my email address in the “From:” line of I-Worm.Sobig.f spams; you know, the one that says “re: Your application” and stuff like that. Is there any protocol for me sending out “No, no, that’s not me” emails or is it just something that I ignore?
