Late to the party, perhaps, but... orange! Keyboard form: http://terminals.classiccmp.org/wiki/images/thumb/3/31/ADDS_Envoy-4.jpg/800px-ADDS_Envoy-4.jpg But I like the white legends of the PDP-8/E. At least, I think this has orange; I'm colorblind, so... https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/common...

Ha, thanks all – I'm glad I didn't spend any money for it! So far, I can't stand having it lock my display, since I keep bumping it in moving my feet around to get comfortable. I've set it up so it beeps at me when I hit the buttons, and now I'm realizing both how hard it is to hit it reliably, and ...

This thread is off topic! Oh, wait... Well, anyway, I cycle too! In my neck of America (Pacific Northwest) there's a lot of road biking, so drivers are cognizant of cyclists.
