Re: Round 7 / ALGOL-style / Deadline 2018-11-30

I've asked for a refund last year September 11th and still no reply. But I'm sure this is all perfectly normal and I only have to wait a few rmore years.

So that's what they sound like; which is quite awesome! I don't get stereo sound strangely, it's only coming from the left speaker. A pitty, the sound is great! And so is the black paint.

I can recall those weren't exactly cheap. The pricetag of 219,00 is still on the box (right upper corner) but whether that is German mark or euro I can't tell.

https://i.imgur.com/P9Zt1SH.jpg This. This here. I once had a wired version of that iTouch keyboard. I typed, bashed, gamed, programmed and more with it for about 15 years before it died thanks to an spilled energy drink.

Rubberized coating on Realforce keycaps? That's new to me. Are you sure it's not just the PBT texture that you're feeling. I was used to the keyboard on my Macbook Pro (flat keys, very short travel) before I got my first HHKB. It didn't take long to get used to typing on the HHKB, and now I really ...

Since when have beamsprings been going for 1.2k and 1.4k? I swear before that Displaywriter keyboard sold, the previous sales were around $600.

I've measured your badge at 1.8cm x 1.8cm, the one of my F122 is 2cm x 2cm.
