Thanks. I am sure Judy will chime in. That will be her first big talk. For my part, that will be my first "product presentation" type of talk.

If you have tips on how to make a great presentation, we would love to hear them :-).

Use Keynote and it's stylish transition effects ;)
Essential also is the remote control and laser pointer combined in one.
I mean; that's what Steve Jobs uses for his, so...

I agree with the remote control and laser pointer, but wouldn't it make sense to use Rev instead of Keynote? :-)

Good point!

I have one of these keyspan thingy. I found it to be an excellent investment (during my academic years).

An issue is to practice it... takes a bit of time to get used to point with this with the remote rather than keyspan + you can page up/page down using a button on the right. Then you need to practice again... under stress conditions, because if you mess up with these buttons, this creates havoc ;-).

As I haven't used it for a while, I will need to make sure I have a spare battery ;-).

True, on a mac, I can use it to move the cursor around and click on any button on the screen.

Any idea how you can capture the pageUp/pageDown signal from the remote to switch to the next card?

checking out the message watcher. It looks like an arrow key message is sent.

Code: Select all

on arrowkey pKey
  if pKey is "up" then 
    go next card
  else if pKey is "down" then
    go prev card
  end if
end arrowkey
And the job is done :-). This works wonders.
