Re: [FREE-EU] Rack/Tray mount keyboard-mouse combination

It's pretty cool, someone can make a really cool desk integrated pc with those as peripherals. I'd do it myself, but I have too many projects that I need to finish already. I agree 100% with both comments! Looks amazing; layoutwise and originality! I'd be really happy to take it off your hands! :D ...

[FREE-EU] Rack/Tray mount keyboard-mouse combination

To be had for the price of shipping: I salvaged two 18 in. rack mount keyboards from the electronics waste bin at work, one of which was mounted in its tray. I won't use both of them so thought I would offer the tray and one of the boards to the community for the price of shipping. They've got what ...

Re: Question about keyboard layouts and scancodes

Do you mean the /? or \| key (to the right of left shift) on the UK layout? If \|, that's probably because that key doesn't exist on the US layout. Never mind that the IBM PC initially placed it there...

Re: Question about keyboard layouts and scancodes

2B is shared by both of those physical locations (and they are functionally the same). Of course, that depends on the scan code set - much more info to be found in John J. G. Savard's article: http://quadibloc.com/comp/scan.htm

Re: Siemens F500

I'm afraid that it will not work directly with a modern computer since the protocol is XT, not AT. You'll need an active converter.

Re: Cleaned a keyboard and won't work now - Is this possible to fix ?

My idea with the lock lights was just a first-order check if the controller wasn't fried. It's by no means a true verification. But it leads me to think that it's likely a contact problem, either between membranes or from membranes to controller. Especially since none of the keys work. Have you clea...

Re: Cleaned a keyboard and won't work now - Is this possible to fix ?

Do the lock lights correspond to their respective state in the operating system? In other words, if you hook up a second keyboard and turn on Num Lock on that one, do both keyboard lock lights respond? Weezer is right, I've had trouble with getting good contact with edge connectors before. Also make...

Re: What do you think about this keyboard?

Nice layout, especially the back tab. And the partially-mirrored num pad. I personally would keep the AltGr key next to the spacebar, but that's just habit from the Enhanced keyboard. And I actually liked your nav cluster unencumbered by other buttons; as pointed out above it's really the space arou...

I’ve got a whole ISO F122 if you’re even more desperate…
That's actually a nice solution, especially if it's for the price of a couple keycaps :D but I'm not to that point of desperation just yet.
Thanks for the replies so far!

[WTB] IBM Model F/M keys

Hello everybody, I'm searching for a vertical ISO enter and backspace of the older variety with thin wire stabilizers. For instance, those who have performed the ANSI mod on their F122 might have an extra hidden away somewhere. I'd like to ISO-mod on my model F AT. Thanks! Edit: in case there are an...

Re: [WTB] Ergonomic Keyboard

Late response! Has your friend already bought something? I've been using my wife's Ultimate Hacking Keyboard during the confinement, and I'm very impressed with it. I know it's not quite what you asked for (it's more like a 60%, and not by default in the Norwegian layout), but once you master the mo...

[EU] Apple Alps keycaps

Hello all, I've got an Apple Macintosh Portable keyboard module, which I've mounted in a temporary plywood frame. I used a Teensy++ to rig up the matrix and it's a joy to use. I might write up something about it in the future if I ever get to finish the project. However the French layout is not real...

Re: Siemens F500

Hi there, first post here. Sorry for the necro, but I've got a similar keyboard from the Falco 500 series. From the Quick Setup Manual 1987 (up two directories from the bitsavers link in OleVoip's post) it looks like Falco offered a couple different layouts. I saw this discussion on GH regarding a F...
