Re: VideoWriter printer minus the switches

I suggest you to post this “offer” to some vintage computer forums, and a suggestion is that you may also consider soldering some switches back onto the keyboard to make this a better offer for a keyboard forum.

Re: ISO users

I'm not an ISO user, I have to ask out of curiosity:

Which (right hand) finger do you hit the ISO Enter with?
1. Pinky?
2. Ring?
3. Middle?

Pinky has to reach further for an ISO enter than for an ANSI enter, but there are more up-and-down row leeway as the ISO enter crosses two rows.
