Re: Great/Interesting Finds

Omnikey is always nice keyboards for alps white but I'm confused about the price, good or should be a little bit lower? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Northgate-Omnikey-101-Mechanical-Keyboard-Great-WORKING-condition/133417069335?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D225086%26...

I must say, I would be quite interested in adding the icon mods kit and accent kit to my collection. I've got a G83 WoB set that needs some more standards mods, and I'm a sucker for this.

Re: Datadesk Switchboard

Hi I currently run my Switchboard in the PS/2 Mode but I do have a spare cable for ADB if you have or can make a converter for that. Also, a heads up, a lot of commercial cheap converters do not work well with the Switchboard. I highly recommend using the tmk pc_usb converter if you plan to go that ...

Re: Sticky keys on NOS Northgate OmniKey Plus

Your active ps/2 to usb adapter, would it happen to be a blue cube? No, it's not a blue cube. It's an active PS/2 to USB converter that I got alongside an IBM Model M that I bought from eBay.

Your active ps/2 to usb adapter, would it happen to be a blue cube? Those have given me nothing but trouble on my northgates. To be honest, your best bet is probably to make a tmk adapter with the ibmpc_usb firmware (no longer recommending soarers due to a lack of support). It works perfectly on all...

ngl, really surprised to see Wodan trashing you like this, Redmaus. For what it's worth, you weren't perfect but accusations of theft are not okay when they haven't surfaced at all until recently.

But then, what do I know? I wasn't there, my perspective is incomplete. This goes both ways, of course.
