Does he have floppy drives for the computer? I may be interested.
Sadly, no, and FYI it's located in Norway, shipping tends to be obnoxiously high when shipping things abroad.
But with that said I could get in touch with him for you if you're interested.

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

I had identical board but with Nokia brand name on top, keyboards even for robber dome keyboard feels weird. Good thing about this keyboard is that it have connection cable that is compatible with IBM keybords with due to SDL connector. It is sometimes cheaper to buy old ICL's/Nokia rubber dome key...

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

The oak membrane is a very nice switch. Dont look at the name, I have two boards with this type switch and they're all very smooth linear. Alright, note taken. :) The seller is asking roughly $130 for the monitor and machine, and isn't sure if it's working or not. While I'd really love to own the m...

Single Model M keycaps

I have a couple of Model M's that are missing some keycaps, and since I can't find replacements either at Unicomp or Clickykeyboards, I thought I'd ask here. So the keycaps I'm looking for are as follows: - Ctrl (gray) - Numpad Del (pearl) If I can't find any I guess I just have to replace them with...

Lesson #1 Controllers and converters are NOT the same thing. Every keyboard has a controller. It’s the chip that drives the matrix. It scans rows against columns to detect which switches are pressed, and it passes this along to the computer in whatever protocol it supports: USB, AT, etc. When we bu...

What you should do probably is start a new thread, since it is looking like you won't be using Soarer's converter. (unless someone adds that board to the converter) For your immediate question, you should notate which solder point on the switch goes to what pin. That way you can figure out what the...

Alright, here I am again with yet another bunch of overly complex questions since I really don't know what I'm doing..

Alright, let's see if this makes some sense. The first thing I did was try to make a "model" of my keyboard as is, in a spreadsheet.

I think \, /, +, - and d,u all represent the state of the key (up or down). So you have basically two values to figure out (scan code and key code?). E.g with: /37 -0E u0E You have "up" for key 0E (37). Maybe stuff like this: https://techdocs.altium.com/display/FPGA/PS2+Keyboard+Scan+Codes Hmmm, in...
