New post [Keyboards] Walking the street, what do I see - an old Model M, staring back at me

The other morning, I was talking an early stroll around the neighbourhood, as I often do during this pandemic.
Apparently, this was the day you put out all sorts of bulky trash.
Not really paying attention, I suddenly came across this treasure:

New post [Keyboards] Converter for NMB Space Invaders keyboard

I have an NMB RT8255CW+ (FCC AQ6-OAEZ15) with a split spacebar and black clicky space invaders. Trouble is, not all the keys will register. I'm using a 5 pin to PS2 converter, then a PS2 to USB, both of which work fine in tandem with other AT 5-pin keyboards. The PS2 to USB is the active type with green

New post [Try before you buy] Topre to pre-try

Using Amazon to try and then return is a nice idea. I might follow your brother-in-law's strategy and try a load of stuff (and put a big red cross in my diary in case I forget to send them back). Thanks for the tip.

New post [For sale] [FS/IC] Pre-made converters, 20 USD + shipping

This is interesting; all of my main computers are PS/2 capable but I do have a few that aren't and I don't know if my next computer will be as nice. Would like to see a finished product!

New post [Group buys] F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

These are those two piece ones. I have some of them ordered years ago from Ellipse but found another source about 2 years ago and bought them NOS.
With Cmd+Arrow Left and Cmd+Arrow Right etc. I used to do the same (but as a macro on the keyboard), I wasn't aware about this solution - NICE!

New post [Other external] Great/Interesting Finds

Yes, there are four models:

46010A: FLS, clock-scanned
46011A: rubber dome, clock-scanned
46020A: FLS, HP-HIL
46021A: rubber dome,HP-HIL

By clock scanned, I mean that the terminal sends a clock pulse over one line and the state of the next key in rotation comes back over another line.

I'm gonna go palm all the faces now.
Yeah, you're completely correct. This is what happens when you're coming from the world of guitar pedals and just about anything black and rectangle-y can be replaced as long as the number's the same. lol

New post [Reviews] Topre Realforce 103U-UW First Impressions

Hey Elrick! Fancy seeing you here, in decade deeeep Necromancy…
I agree. Topre is addictive. My other boards have to have a *reason* to ever get used before my HHKB and Realforce. Mind, my "other" boards are Model Fs and just as clicky Space Invaders, so their alibis are sound! It's quiet, tactile

This is rather sad, because I have already witnessed how a worthy resource passed into new hands and changed dramatically. True, it was a blog, not a forum. On the forum, the role of the community is still greater. But the policy of the new owners may be such that the regular visitors of the forum

New post [Gallery] Keyboards in movies/TV series!

Great! Because I somehow forgot the hobbies of those times when I was much younger. And even now there are so many TV shows that you just do not have time to watch everything that interests you. This is if it were not for working and doing nothing else at all, except watching films and TV series ...

New post [Keyboards] IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

Not a good photo angle to judge from as most clones have two 'tabs' on each side, which this photo doesn't show.
