Subject RE: Is there a way to prevent urls from being entered from the browser?
Date Mon, 29 Dec 2003 20:19:42 GMT
It wouldn't be useful for most people, but for an intranet application where a regular PC would
be overkill, it made sense to use thin clients, and even more sense to use touchscreens and
toss the keyboard and mouse (we have space constraints in the packing stations as it is, there
was no way that the engineers would give us room for luxuries! :-)
