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. Here is a picture of the converter: active_converter.jpg To be honest, your best bet is probably to make a ...

Re: Sticky keys on NOS Northgate OmniKey Plus

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...

Re: How to kill keyboard during restoration

Okay, so this actually happened to me with my Acer KB-101-A. My solution was to handwire it all and make it a usb compatible, programmable keyboard. I can help you go through with this if you would like. If you have diodes on it, it will be significantly easier. Seeing that it is the A model, this s...

Re: Computer Reset Conundrum

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.

OK so have been speaking to the seller since last night and he has offered a 40% refund. is that enough to warrant trying to clean up the oil and restore those 4 switches?
Honestly for a 40% refund that's totally worth it.
