It doesn't have the immediacy of the `oooh, look how thin and smooth it is!', but we've generally found that `thick enough to make the edge grippable' is an asset rather than a liability, as is `grippy rather than smooth': compare `slides off your lap' vs. `doesn't slide off your lap' and `easy to drop' vs. `easy to hold onto'. `Oooh--how ergonomic!' is a tough first impression to give, though. Unless you're presenting to ergonomists, maybe :) -- -- "Don't be afraid to ask (λf.((λx.xx) (λr.f(rr))))." _______________________________________________ gnhlug-discuss mailing list gnhlug-discuss <at> mail.gnhlug.org http://mail.gnhlug.org/mailman/listinfo/gnhlug-discuss/
