Ah, excuse me if I can be seen as an invasive person, I hope you don't feel offended. I think the shiny red esc is near to all the other sets. Honeywell obviously. Recent one just because everybody so. I think that if you make it different it would have more character. It could be simply the same gr...

I like it very much, if I had the money I would buy this SA because I like very much these colors. I think it's indeed good if you consider to take the time to refine certain little things if you like them. For example, fonts in that time were not like recent apple fashion stile super thin font.

hello, saw this archaic desk-keyboard/cpu (Honeywell 316)
and I wish to see how this thing works and if there's interest,
image editing is minimal for testing.

kbdfr I wrote "hooooo" in relation to your fine catch of the Siemens unity 2, it's really interesting element, and that are expensive tools, you got it at a ridiculous enviable price. It's motivational to continue searching any goods.
And now you got the blanket keyboard, hohohoooo!

I have some tipro and that TMC model is surely that... only I was curious why he wrote Tipco 3 times, perhaps not a typo error? Anyway these are fantastic programmable boards, a pity this bid doesn't ship to Italy.

I use -ANSI hardware layout because of programming but I miss a tall enter useful when you are moving mouse and need to press it with the right hand thumb. -QWERTY as caps position, because in Italian we use so much vowels that in DVORAK my left hand would go on fire.
