If I'm being honest, I think it will go to a collector where it will sit on a shelf or in a box. It probably will not be put to use.depletedvespene wrote: ↑23 Jun 2019, 13:39Beyond my budget already - short-lived dream was short-lived.
GLWA! I hope the F50 does end up in the hand of some other guy that will want to put it to good use. (while I cry in the corner and stuff)
That's the state of things with some of these old IBMs, however. I had a Kishsaver as well and I sold it when I decided that it was too frustrating to use as an every day keyboard and too big and heavy to use as a travel keyboard (obviously). I would rather sell it to fund some keyboards that I would actually use. I could have held onto it for a couple years and sold it for many times what I did. Oh well. These are only keyboards. There is more to life.
The one keyboard I do miss is the F122 that I had revived and restored. That thing was a joy to use and had a key for everything without having to bury keycodes in layers. I sold it because it was simply too big and unwieldy but now I think that I can live with it. Luckily, those are still floating around for somewhat affordable prices and I can relive that dream.
