Re: Wish me luck...

I would suggest you also take your chair when leaving.
After all, your boss also paid for it.
Good luck then.

[…] Asking price is 60eur (not including shipping) and ships within the EU :)
Now that’s more than a fair price for such a rare item.
A pity I’m not buying keyboards anymore, I would have jumped on it at once.
I would suggest you reserve it for a seasoned member like photekq :D

Re: Need help programming some Tipro keypads

I might be able to help here, but sadly I'm not sure it will be a great help. Usually Tipro 8x4 keypads are just extensions for bigger Tipro boards and as such do not have a controller of their own and are not programmable separately. And 8x4 keypads with a controller are extremely rare. So that's t...

Re: 7u cherry profile white ABS spacebar

I have an original Cherry 7u ABS spacebar with centered middle stem, quite heavily yellowed but other than that in good condition,
which you can have for shipping costs (which unfortunately would amount to ~13€ as DHL/Deutsche Post now prohibit anything else than documents in letters).
