Are the switches exactly the same as the switches we have seen on the ICL/Nokia Data boards? Does the 2u keys have a white slider and a red slider connected via a metal bar? Either way, I believe this type share the same lineage with other "ICL switches" we have seen. Ericsson Data merged with Noki...

Ericsson type 1121

Saw this board on an auction site and picked it up. Haven't seen these switches before, anyone know what they might be? They're tactile, and feel like a mix between cherry browns and clears. Appears to be NKRO, no idea about protocol or even operating voltage. I haven't even been able to find out wh...

Ampex 220/Cherry G80-053571?

As I went home today I was wondering why a doubleshot Cherry key was lying in my doorway. I first thought it must had slipped out of my apartment, but all my Cherry DS were accounted for. I share the doorway with the caretaker, so I figured he had thrown some old tech stuff away, and I was right. I ...

A G80-1800 I own had this problem. I just replaced the faulty switch, tried cleaning it first but no go.

I don't know how much of that improvement is attributed to Dvorak or just touch typing properly. Like webwit said, Colemak i...

It's a bit tricky, considering they don't have NKRO. You have to put layer switches on both devices, otherwise, some relatively common combinations will be impossible to perform. And it beeps like hell when you run out of 'KRO. :)

lol on the both of you. For me, it's the amount of pink that's the limiting factor. The VorTex caps seem to posses a perfect amount of pink, the example below does not.

I now know why I was unable to get the cable/device working with RS232. If I would have read the manual more closely from the get-go, I would have saved myself a lot of time. The KM032MAA does not support RS232 as the main communications interface. :mrgreen:

The RS232 connection won't power the device, if only RS232 is to be used, PS/2 needs to be connected as well just to power it. I don't know if the LCD modules need some additional power source besides PS/2, but it is likely. I'm tempted to buy one of these damn cables just to get to know just what t...

kbdfr, do you have the pin-out for Tipros 8-pin minidin -> PS/2+RS232 split cable?? I've tried to puzzle it together, but it's not going great, and I don't feel like going the trial-and-error route just yet. It's real annoying to have to move the keyboard to a 32bit OS to reprogram it

I don't think that's necessary, if you experience drop outs or the like, you might have to shorten the cable or use one that's shielded.
