[Other news] Stuff you just bought

Actually, I wasn't going to because there is already a thread on this type of keyboard but it looks like there is no corresponding wiki page. That's disappointing. Looks like I will be taking pics when it arrives.

Well just so you know I'd be disappointed if you don't show us any more, wiki or forum post. :evilgeek:

Those were announced in french part and somewhere else I figure, I've called the seller about 2 weeks ago and was lucky he finish to accept to send me part of the lot (I lived somewhere around his location once, that helped me :mrgreen: ).
Anyway first beamspring and an azerty one, I'm really happy with this one !

Crappy pics from roomate's phone, mine isn't smart at all.
WP_20161010_11_53_02_Pro.jpg

The others are 2 bigfoot's XT with one in some box that is quite destroyed but seems to be fair new and dirty as hell ( suspect box stayed open for a long while ).

And the big daddy dirt as the rest
WP_20161010_11_53_14_Pro.jpg

Will certainly get rid of the XTs for a very fair price(what costs me).
Nothing keyboard related but I also get this that I've got for few bucks and a smile..
The right one I opened myself to clean its Beyerdynamic M81 a very fine vintage one, the others too BTW ;)

And finally a mysterious NICOLS turntable that seems to be old(70's or 80's) high end stuff, the plate is heavy as hell..

Sorry about long post and again for bad pics quality, but I share the proper camera with others and so don't have it always !

the holy grail :O

Nice. :shock: Not sure if I've ever seen an unbranded one like that? Looks really clean, congrats! :)

Yea, me neither. The potato cam doesn't show it, but the case yellowed pretty unevenly. Other than that, it does seem to be in a decent condition.

I would say that it is branded, as Alps, i.e. it looks like this could be an off-the-shelf version. I don't recall seeing an off-the-shelf Bigfoot though. The off-the-shelf model that comes to mind is the LCM30:

photos-f62/alps-bigfoot-keyboard-toshiba-branded-t16994.html

That example proves a ≥ 1996 date for white damped, as the year is written on the PCB. However, white damped was supposedly still produced as late as ~2001 (if I remember correctly, since it's not documented).

Most of those have controller ICs with no date codes — all the codes are identical regardless of who made the chip. Yours however may have a 9544 date code, which is fairly consistent with the PCB, but by the better part of a year. Now, alps.tw has a Bigfoot keyboard with the same PCB code as Scarface's, yet the serials are a long way apart. I'm wondering whether those PCBs were made in huge batches, since the PCB code really does seem to indicate the month of production (here, January 1995).

Yours is the original expected year for white damped, of 1995.

How much was the shipping for the LCD adapter? Did you go tracking-less?

A friend ordered a bunch of them a while back, I'm not sure what type of shipping he used. Guess I can ask and get back to you.

Actually the Shield replaces the Pi and I bought it mainly for it's media playing capabilities. I do plan to play with it's other features. Thinking about ordering one of these kits : https://shop.smartthings.com/smartthings-link and do some smart stuff :)

Got an LCD controller and a 3M strips. They gave an extension to a 10+ old laptop; or atleast a part of it. :D

Hello everbody! I have been lurking for a while now already and finally decided to share this german layout f122 I got on ebay 2 months ago. Promicro hasn't arrived yet so I had no opportunity to test it, but its condition looks fairy good at least.

Today, I bought my third BTC 5140 and my first RollerMouse at a flea market, from the same seller.
The seller had also a NMB-made AppleDesign Keyboard in good condition that I skipped on.

The BTC was bought primarily for keycaps, as most are Cherry MX-compatible and in Swedish layout.
The RollerMouse was, I think a first-gen with button above the scroll wheel.

It looks great! Let me mention how envious I feel right now. :-)
