So, 5 days into what will probably be 6 weeks without my primary hand, and I'm finding it a quite frustrating experience. I can't write, use a mouse (other than club-handed in my right hand), and a myriad of other common actions that you typically use both hands for (cutting up food being one. Fortunately most of my shoes have elastic laces...)
In order to try and get a modicum of productivity going, I've picked up a cheap Windows tablet PC
This lets me do some stuff without an additional peripheral in my right hand (finger drawing flow charts, handling email with basic gestures etc). My normal working process is/was to work with paper and pencil, then re-work into MS Office. I work almost exclusively in the language of annotated flow charts normally, interspersed with annotated screenshots, then rounded out with bullet-points and pseudo-code/structured language.
I have some basic stuff loaded onto the tablet (OneNote, with its basic drawing capability, and Office365 Online) for productivity...can anyone recommend any touch-enabled tools (ie, very little right-click requirements).
On the more fun side, as a full Windows machine it also has Steam! I initially thought Command and Conquer would be awesome, however that right-click comes back into play. I've discovered Defence Grid has touch-enabled controls, and runs fine (low graphics capability, but OK CPU and memory). Any other games on Steam that people could recommend?
