Obviously an Apricot computer/board, but does anyone know which model and if it's actually worth getting?

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. (1. set) Then I tried to map what HID_listen registered when I hit all of the keys, and added in the different codes. (2nd set) After that I added another one where I ...

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...

@snufflecat: Have you read the documentation? Do you have the "codes.html" file? Open the codes file, and you will see a table listing the Name of the keys, HID codes, and description of the key. There is also a folder with sample sc files that can serve as a starting point for your configuration. ...

Alright, so I've managed to flash and load the correct firmware, and most of the keys are working great. (Yay!) However, some buttons register in hid_listen, but nothing shows up when typing. Some keys don't even seem to register anything in hid_listen. I suppose this means I have to edit the sc-fil...

Thanks for posting! I'd be curious to see whether or not the older keycaps still got the same results if you hadn't used the denture cleaning solution. Were the other colored caps also just dyed, or was the plastic colored all the way through?
