Re: Seeking Soarer - evidence thread

If you want to have a spirited discussion with a real man like esr about how you wildly disagree with his opinions, you need to bring some pretty good arguments instead of boring insults.

Re: Seeking Soarer - evidence thread

Got his real name and last address when I sent him something. Searched for it. I'd say he values his privacy and would hate to see those details published on the Internet.

You need a bit more evidence to declare him legally dead. You're not new to the Internet. People radically quit whether a keyboard otaku or into my little pony.

Still, I hear you. I can't begin to imagine how Chyros, with his lame hate of ergonomic keyboards and his beady little eyes, would review the Datahand, once he gets one.

IBM Daisy System 2500. Apparently a Dutch made IBM system inspired by IBM System 3741. Don't know if that's a beam spring board.

Re: Deskthority blog/articles - thoughts, opinions, contributions?

Having to bow down to top DT writers and their unchallenged blog opinions, being degraded to the cheering audience for some DT influencers is quite the distopian thought. Don't tell me you can challenge them in the comments or the forum posts - I've read my share of blog posts and very rarely do yo...

Re: Please welcome the new owners of Deskthority

You can't score if you don't shoot. DT stuff ranks well in Google, keyboard enthusiasts search for stuff, and it could be a very accessible entry/introduction to DT, instead of having to dive deep into the forum at once to engage with us Cherry racists.

My contact at Fentek actually told me they got them from Unicomp and at one point Unicomp tried to buy some back because they were short. This was a long time ago though. Makes sense though. Fentek wouldn't invest in a mold and plastics blah blah just for retro clear IBM caps. They just got a billio...
