This is the only one I have that's not in storage while we move. Other than this, I have one of the all white display writers, a small one and a big one. That's about as descriptive as I can get, it's been a while since I had them out. The small one I have is NIB and the guy I bought it from had 20 ...

That's just awesome. I wasn't sure I'd see the day when we could use them on modern systems.

Very cool.

Yeah, I lurk from time to time. I took my avatar pic keyboard apart (Invac Photoelectric) when I first got it but not since. It's pretty cool with the nixie tubes, lots of hand routed PCB work, mechanical wizardry. Nothing like a German enigma machine but still cool. It sits to the side of my desk i...

IBM terminal w/Beamspring

Pioneer Audio video shows an IBM terminal w/beamspring keyboard, keypad and laser pen/digitizer monitor for CAD system.

I own this keyboard and other beam spring IBMs so it jumped out at me.

With scripts, If you can run a command I suppose that would cover it because you can launch a batch file. As for numbers on mouse affecting numpad, some mice that I looked at a few years ago (early Naga?) have numbered buttons which map directly to the numpad on your keyboard. So to customize the mo...

Mouse recommendation with truly programmable buttons?

Greetings friends. Have any recommendations for programmable mice (windows) to be used for non-gaming productivity via mapping or programming buttons? - Launch applications - Run Scripts - Key combinations (alt+space to minimize for example) - Volume up/down/mute - Act as Modifier keys - So you map ...

Some of those pics are actually mine, love the keyboard and have one listed on ebay right now.

When I got a batch of them a few years ago there were some with and some without windows keys, the ones without win keys were ISO, note the blank key to the left of Z.

Do you have ASMR?

So I stumbled onto something that blows my mind and had to pop back here to post. ASMR. I'd be willing to bet quite a few people on this forum have the same thing due to interest in sounds and feeling of various keyboard switches, materials etc. Check it out.

Next they'll be buying 1Million ClickClacks to go along with them.

It could be to supply a decade of refrigerator door light switches or something similar. But pretty likely it's for keyboards.

Look closely at the lack of dedicated arrow keys as well as the backspace/delete key situation which is why some like me can't use it and why some love it. Try running an AHK script to simulate the HHKB layout before popping for a real one. For me it's Realforce 87 or 103 if you need a numpad all th...

The one in the movie is a lower end model. Most were plastic shells on the top but still very good. I have that model in Black. The 747 is superior to it and is the same profile from the side, so you aren't missing anything. Now about those key caps, they made me want to go play pool so I did. First...

Yep, it's the Swingline issue of Milton's red stapler (which was never actually made in red before the movie, it was a prop) but Swingline chose to make a red version of their higher end 747 stapler at the request of Office Space fans.

I don't have a micrometer with me but spacing from key edge to graphic edge is about 2.75mm on the right and 3.25mm on the left. Most noticeable on the 5 and 9 keys to my eyes.
