new skin for touchscreens!
« on: March 25, 2007, 07:46:08 pm »
I'm running Wincab on an old laptop that I stuck above my drop ceiling. I have a wall mounted touchscreen monitor hooked to it, so I don't have easy access to the laptop and need to run everything from the touchscreen. I modified one of the CD skins so that it has volume controls and a small red escape button on the right side of the screen. The laptop has a pushbutton power switch, so I ran a set of wires from it to a tiny pushbutton switch on the back of the touchscreen to power up the laptop. When I want to shut it down I just touch the red escape button and shut down the laptop from the windows screen. On this skin the "CLR" button erases your entry, the "CANCEL" button ends the song playing, and the "RND" button plays a constant string of random selections.
I picked up a cheap wireless PC remote to control the volume from behind my home bar.
I have attached a screenshot of it. I don't know how to host it so if anyone wants it, send me a message and I'll send it to you.
