Ok, this may not be the group to ask this question, but since the people on
here so knowledgeable...I thought I would give it a spin. I work in a VERY
dirty industrial repair area, and I would like to set up a touchscreen
monitor for the repair guys to look up parts diagrams, and schematics.
Unfortunately the mouse and keyboard get very dirty in this environment, so
I would like to know if its possible to set up a touchscreen based database.
what software and hardware should I be looking at for such a installation?
Thanks,
Kim

Why not use an industrial keyboard with a touch-pad instead of mouse-ball.
Search on 'industrial keyboard' and look for one with a touch-pad included.
As an example:

RDP makes a nice touch screen unit, with a fold out key board. Runs XP. Sealed keyboards. Heavy construction. Tuff. You can put it
on the shop floor.
see.. www.rdpdisplays.com/
USA and UK

Have fun

Do the guys a favour and give them an *optical* mouse, and a cheap
keyboard. Replace the mouse every year, and the keyboard every 4 months.
