Re: Alps Appreciation

Family photo with all but 2 of my SKCC boards: https://i.imgur.com/uGeUGd4.jpg I still want to get a Nabu and Morrows SKCC board so maybe in the future I can retake this with even more boards. Wow, you've got a lot of SKCCs! Do you think they are as susceptible to dust and wear as the SKCL/SKCM line?

Re: [WTS] IBM 5140 (Brown Alps, PBT Dye Subs), Modded HHKB

I'd be on that 5140 in a heartbeat if it weren't for my recent purchases. :( First, I am dropping the price of the Brown Alps board to 160, and the HHKB down to 215. Zed, would that price allow you to buy? My wallet weeps, but I think I will have to go for it at that price. I'll continue our PM'ing...

Well, the one I WAS going to get before the mail lost it had blue Alps and a DIN plug, so, standard AT connector with AT/XT switch. Coiled cable. Pad printed caps.

I hate to one-up the_ambyguous here, but I am willing to offer the same board, as well as a Model M.

Re: Let's make the worst layout ever!

But it's true that ortholinear keyboard layout *is* considered more ergonomic than staggered, so it doesn't matter if 99% of computer users don't feel familiar with it, when first put in contact with such a keyboard.

Hi,

How much is worth very probably NOS Fk- 727 with Alps Blue (metal plate has a little dust)

As a wild guess, maybe $350-400.

But that is just a guess and not based on evidence.

Now we need to try pine vs bamboo.

Maybe they changed materials when removing the slits?
