Re: Fixing the $10 Industrial M13

It's not quite as straight forward as a 1-6, but here's what I made as a personal note when doing it:

The left column is the only one you'll need, the right was just my reference for cables I was I was using as replacement.

Genovation ControlPad 5809 Programmable Keypad

Content Warning: Very Dirty Anyway, onwards. I picked up a lot of 5 of these from the local surplus sale figuring they'd be fun. The legends are certainly interesting, they look to have come from the local 911 phone system that we recently upgraded. https://i.imgur.com/iNMkqsA.jpg On the back we hav...

Re: The Deskthority community it so much nicer than reddit

Can confirm, I'm a lazy bastard and I don't like to moderate much unless something goes off the rails. Usually problems resolve themselves without needing intervention. Just watch for post reports and if it's spam deal with it and if not decide whether it's something serious enough to bother with. I...

Re: Fixing the $10 Industrial M13

I've got a *lot* of old computers with PS/2 so it's easier to just throw an adapter on the end when I need it. So update: It works! The keyboard side of things works absolutely fine. On the other hand, the trackpoint isn't auto centering. It's just stuck racing to the bottom of the screen no matter ...

Re: Fixing the $10 Industrial M13

Alright some cable update. Went ahead and lopped the cables off an old ball mouse and a random trashed Unisys POS board. A little work later, they're sleeved together. https://i.imgur.com/ov2gckK.jpg?1 The next step was strain relief. I didn't want to just leave a cable hanging out a gaping hole in ...

Fixing the $10 Industrial M13

$10 Industrial M13? We all wish we could be so lucky...or do we? Here's what I'm starting with. It doesn't look horrific here, just a bit dirty. https://i.imgur.com/N5ImQY9.jpg It's a Maxi Switch manufactured M13, dating from 1996. I want to say that's the newest Model M I own. https://i.imgur.com/w...

Topre ANSI Enter Key Cap (Just the one)

I'm currently on the search for a Topre compatible enter key. Unfortunately me being me I managed to snap the stem on my Type Heaven's enter key making the board a little challenging to use. I don't particularly care what colour, could be black, could be puke green, just needs to fit.

Re: Deskthority Secret Santa 2018

Sorry for disappearing for a while, my job's gonna kill me.

Anyway, I've sent out the collections notices to the remaining Santas who haven't paid up. With any luck, the credit hit will be enough and we won't need to send out the "collectors", if you catch my drift.

There's no need to fear, there'll be another round next year!

Unfortunately with the matches already thrown out, I wouldn't be able to easily match you up with someone. The only exception would be if someone else voices they'd like to join late and I could pair up you two.

Old computers are more or less how I got into this place. I've still got way too many in the garage, but it's nice having original systems for some of the keyboards :) . I'm way more active on the old computer forums than I am here, I mainly check in a few times a day to try and keep spam down.
