Re: Ergo Keyboard Expo

Thanks for sharing. Were all of the boards from your collection and how many people were at the event? The Typematrix 2030 isn't mine. The owner uses a customised bepo layout. It's really good to meet someone else with an interest in these things. There was around 12 people, maybe more I think. Eve...

Re: Left-handed vertical mouse: how steep is the learning curve?

Just keep going. Vertical mice (left or right) feel really clumsy at first, and after a few years I'm still faster with a flat mouse in my right hand, but after a while that would start to hurt. In my my, the transition was well worth it.

Re: Pop up Keyboard Museum

I have to admit to just using a laptop at home, but then I don't tend to type much outside of work. I do have a few 'normal' boards, too. Nice spot! The M15 was quite popular, along with the cherry and the cykey. I tend towards ergo keyboards as I have an issue with my nerves in my arms (not as dram...

I joined a tech group just a few weeks back, they were thinking of a subject for the following week so I mentioned that I had a collection of ergo boards that might be of at least some interest.

Sadly, the Simon Andrews memorial lap, dedicated to the riders who have lost their lives to the races, had to be cancelled due to a crash before the roads were closed for it.

Thanks for organising! Your pm made me chuckle to myself for a few days.

Brutal is a good description, slightly over 100 years of races has claimed over 250 lives.

Have you considered using the mouse with your other hand. It's a pretty cheap change, takes a while to get used to it, but it could give you some flexibility if your symptoms change in the future. I'd suggested trying as many boards as you can, which might not be easy. The more the change, the easie...

That's a beautiful board. I want to say something really nice about the keyboard and I know it cost you a chunk or two out of your hand, but it's clearly the result of a work of love, passion, vision... but every time I re-write it, it sounds like I'm trying to say that it was worth sacrificing your...

Re: What is the oldest keyboard in your collection?

I used my zx81 enough to put a dent in the shift key. I gave that one to a friend when I was still at school, but I picked up another 81 about 10 years ago. So, that's my oldest at the moment.
