Re: What's Wrong with a Thrift Shop?

I've bought maybe half a dozen vintage keyboards at local thrift stores and recycling places in the last ten years. But most of mine were rescued in the '90s when I worked at a recycling shop. Anyone who expects to find gold just laying on the ground for the picking will probably be disappointed. Li...

Re: Reasonable?

Thanks for the answers. I ordered it as "in stock", I sent an e-mail before hand "are they really in stock???" to which I got a reply "yes", but was notified after ordering that "oops, we actually don't have one, well we do, but we have to give it to someone else for RMA".

Re: Please help me choose a keyboard after my unicomp model m

I hate I hate Buckling Springs feel - I wanted to be happy about my black M13 with Trackpoint, and I wanted to have the motivation to just immediately to go to pick up a Model F when I have an offer to have it in just 30€ - but I just really don't care I am a Topre & MX-linear guy; and for clicky I...

Re: Broken microcontroller: what to do next

If soldering MCU pins fixed the problem for a while then it is likely you have badly soldered MCU to PCB or the MCU is broken. The thermal stress may have temporarily (dis)connect something in the MCU package. The chance that it is somewhere else around the broken row traces on the PCB is lower now....

PS/2 to USB adapter hitting Print screen with arrow keys

Well this is a new one. Picked up another PS/2 to USB adapter, and this one hits print screen whenever I hit an arrow key.

Anyone else run into THIS kind of issue? Using my AT101W with it, the adapter was some Manhattan brand I picked up at a local computer store.

Here's the thing about ISO: the extra key it has over ANSI comes from that short Shift.
