Is anyone here familiar with that one-hand keyboard called "the frog" or "froggie?" I have been trying to decide which is a better way to go for remote computing - use a portable keyboard with a PDA attached or possibly this new contraption that only requires one hand to type - that frog device. Does anyone have any insight here? Please do NOT suggest a laptop. That is not what I want.

Lamar,
Considering I only have the use of one hand, I would be interested in this.

Lamar,

I recall reading an article in Byte magazine (way back when it existed) that described a one-hand character entry device. I wouldn't call it a keyboard, because it wasn't even remotely flat. You grasped it like a potato, and pressed the "eyes" (buttons) in combinations to enter characters. Sort of like playing a musical instrument.

You needed to memorize the key combinations in order to be able to use the device, but apparently it wasn't too difficult. I gather it was rather popular with the wearable computer crowd, because you could walk around with one hand hand in your pocket and nobody would know you were frantically typing away!

I have no idea what the current status of the device is.

Hi Lamar,

I have no experience, but I did come across a web site for a product called Frogpad that sounds like it.  They have information there on how it is used and a frequently asked questions section.

Garland,

In order to insert that little Frogpad jpeg into your post, did you have to use the HTML editor? And, if you did use the HTML editor, did you have to first capture that picture jpeg and place it in a file folder on your server just to respond to my question the way you did? If so, does everyone here on Ryze have to do it that way if they want to put a picture in an email post? If so, why does it have to be that way? Under normal situations, I can past a jpeg into a normal email message from my computer without any problem. But, once I get on Ryze, I can no longer do that. Why does Ryze make the process so difficult? What's the reason for it? Please explain.

Hello Lamar,

Yes, I did use another html editor (Front Page) and then copy and pasted the html into the Ryze message.  I do this for all messages I post where I want to use any formatting.  I actually inserted the picture right from the Internet rather than saving it on my hard drive.  You wouldn't see a picture from my hard drive that I included in an online posting unless I uploaded it to the web first.  It works sometimes when you send email because the email program tries to attach the picture you used.

You'll have to talk to Ryze about improving their html editor as I have nothing to do with their choices in this matter.  Ryze does have a support discussion network at http://www.ryze.com/support.php?lr=topright.

Lamar:

When you post into this network, or any other network, from my own experience.

You do not need to use the HTML editor to post any form of code. But you will need to edit the code so the result is not cluttered.

Often times when you just place a code in the text box it treats it like a normal text.

So if you post a code such as for frogpad that Carlson had posted, then chanced at the end of the code to plain text it will not have the proper paragraphs or line breaks as you typed it.

In other words once you begin using any form of code in the network reply, it is set to the code format, thereby making anything that is typed after the code set to the HTML default.

I guess Ryze will be adding new features to assist in our many attempts at either coding our pages or simple text. But they have not stated when new features are going to be added, nor which ones.

Garland,

If I understand you correctly, you must go to a lot of extra work just to respond to Ryze posts on your network. First, you do not simply type a response. Instead, you open up an HTML editor outside of Ryze. Then, you copy an paste the response from that HTML editor to the one on Ryze. Is that correct? Then, if you decide you want to include a picture, you have to find out where it is out on the Net and put in its location (the SRC=). If the picture is not out on a website somewhere (including your server), then there can be no picture in the posting. Is that correct? Well, why it is you can upload pictures from your hard drive to your Ryze page, but not to Ryze messages?

 Hello Lamar,

It isn't much extra work as I write the reply directly in the outside HTML editor and just copy and paste the code.  I usually don't use pictures, except when there is already one on the web I can use.

You would have to ask Ryze why they don't add an option let people attach pictures to messages, but I assume it is because they don't want to have to provide the space for 1,000s of additional pictures beyond the ones on our portfolios.

Garland,

I must be ignorant as to how this process for pictures works. What difference does it make if I use the HTML editor and place a picture via that SRC= thing in an email comment or on my personal Ryze page or, if Ryze simply provides the ability to place pictures in an easier manner? How is one means of providing space for pictures more costly than another? Please explain.

Using the code (img src="www.ryze.com/your_pix.gif) is essentially the same as using the "easier" way that ryze allows us to upload a picture to our personal page. Both would have the picture taking up space on a ryze server's hard drive. This might well take up more space on the drives than they have available.

Using the code to source the picture from your web host (img src="http://www.myhost.com/images/your_pix.gif) means that the picture is called from your server, where your web site is. The picture is never even temporarily stored on the ryze server and that keeps their hosting costs a little lower.



This is an image that resides on my http://www.heroicdogstories.com server.

The part where the cost appears is all about whose server it is on.

Does that help?

P.S. I use "( )" instead of the proper "<" and ">" to surround the tag examples, so the code shows up as text..
