  • Whiteboard markers can write on glass. You can leave yourself notes on your bathroom mirror or your car windows or your computer monitor.
  • To save the contents of a whiteboard before erasing it, take a photo of it with your digital camera. If the diagram is nice enough you can just upload the photo to your wiki.

  • Buy extra black markers, since those are the ones that run out first.
  • If you accidentally use permanent markers on your whiteboard, you can get the marks off by scribbling overtop with erasable markers and then erasing as usual.
    • Spraying it with hairspray and/or Windex works as well - Egoodwin 01:02, 5 May 2005 (EDT)
  • For me, whiteboards are incredibly useful when I work (systems design meetings &c), so I make sure I have one handy whenever I can.. even when I go to a client.. If they don't have one, I get out a large sheet of paper (which I carry with me (folded), and tape it to the outside of a glass pane/window to create a background. At this point they'll start to look funny, with a strange kind of respect.. Works great, just make sure you use non-permanent markers ;-) Also handy for 'domestic planning sessions'.. cheapest whiteboards available -- Wafel 24 Mar 05
