I'm guessing the 103B you wanted is specifically the PS/2 model? I have leads on a USB one.

[WTB] IBM M122 Controller

Yes... for the most disliked M. I'm trying to get a couple for a "local" dude, and perhaps some of you have any spares?

Offer away, I guess. I can also take the whole entire M122, but budget for this is only tight, as I'm mainly interested only on the controller.

Cheers!

Re: The Ohio lot: story time & photos

@ohaimark do you still have any pictures of your G80-0505? I can't seem to find a picture of the board as a whole, even the whole layout of the board I can't find (the one I can find is missing a keycap int he top right).

I hate to break the bad news to you, but...

That's an M122, not an F122.

The membrane connectors gave it all away.

Why not just get Tai-Hao to produce a vintage grey Alps set? It's a bit overkill to want thick Alps keycaps when we barely have any at all.
Nobody wants thin keycals. 'nuff said. You won't appeal to the market otherwise.

Re: Bay Area Keyboard Meetup - Nov 2019

Good meeting you too. FWIW there were some complaints about limited table space and you brought like 3-4 tables of boards. These days I keep it under 10 keyboards and/or bring a table if I'm going to put out that many. Ah, yeah, that's a good idea, actually. I'll keep that in mind. To be clear, tho...
