Re: Can I mod my Unicomp PC122 to output a unique scancode for each key?

I've seen you've already got your answer on your r/ModelM post. Unicomp can produce a controller with single usage code firmware that would be suitable for easy remapping. So as an FYI to anyone thinking about buying a PC-122 for PC usage, might want to drop them an email before your purchase reques...

Very nice work! :D I think I'll definitely be making use of this. I do have two comments as feedback that might be of help. Firstly, it seems that any remaps I've done are ignored. For example, when I tested your program on my 102-key terminal Model M, the scancodes and translations outputted are of...

Re: Model M conversion options

In terms of performance ad reliability, there shouldn't be any difference provided the keyboard's original cable is still in good shape. As such, I usually go with option one since it means the converter is portable, easily serviced/troubleshooted and can be used for other keyboards you may have now...

Re: [WTB] old-style Model M LED overlays

One thing you can try is seeing if Unicomp's UK reseller (The Keyboard Company) is willing to ship over the channel? They stock quite a few Unicomp products right now.

Hey all,

I'm UK-based, but I'm willing to entertain offers from anywhere.

Like them both but think you should ditch the insert for the IBM badge, and instead do something like what's in my avatar pic.
If possible, option for both. I imagine having the badge insert for those wanting to make an industrial SSK would be popular.
