Great and honorable oracle of keyboards
Would you grant a feeble old man
on his death bed, one last wish?I tried asking the Sibyl, but she just mmade fun of mmmmymy st st st studder
Here's my plea: For years, this old man has spent, toiled and slouched through sleepless nights and backbreaking days trying to figure out this mysterious keyboard. I refuse to believe that it's some "gods forsaken freak of nature", as my friends and neighbors call it. It has to have a purpose. It HAS to mean something.
Here are a few images:Model: Antec KF-91R
Made in Taiwan
From what I've been able to dig up, it's an obscure Antec-branded version of a legacy Filco keyboard. It has the imitable Strongman ALPS switches mounted on a plastic plate--pretty cool, right?
Well, here's where things gets creepy. This keyboard features:
-TWO ADB-style cable ports, ala your vintage Apple keyboards
-But it's NOT ADB. I've tested it on a Powermac and a PC with ADB/USB converter. Nadda.
-I've also tried splicing an ADB cable into a PS/2 cable... No dice there either
-It also has a Windows key, so it's GOT to be a PC model, right?
My guess is that is uses some proprietary ADB/SVIDEO to USB cable, but I can't find any information that suggests this. From what I can tell, there is next to no information about this keyboard anywhere online.
I implore you, great Oracle, impart upon me a sliver of your infinite wisdom. I've set aside for sacrifice three strong goats and five hens.
Blessings of Jove upon you.
