IBM Wheelwriter 1000 - $25
« on: Thu, 12 October 2017, 15:39:56 »
Nice Wheelwriter keyboard. $25 / best offer + free shipping. Worth it just for the one piece keys.

Maybe it is just my imagination, but those typewriter keys feel better than keyboard keys.

And, if lot-lizard ever revives his project, I suspect that a lot of people will be wanting "Code" keys.
TED NUGENT (NRA BOARD MEMBER):
"Don’t ask why. Just know that evil, dishonesty, and scam artists have always been around and that right now they’re liberal, they’re Democrat, they’re RINOs, they’re Hollywood, they’re fake news, they’re media, they’re academia, and they’re half of our government, at least. So come to that realization. There are rabid coyotes running around. You don’t wait till you see one to go get your gun. Keep your gun handy, and every time you see one, you shoot one."

"Well, I don’t care if you’re just 13 / You look too good to be true / I just know that you’re probably clean .... / Jailbait you look fine, fine, fine .... / It’s quite alright, I asked your mama / Wait a minute, officer / Don’t put those handcuffs on me / Put them on her, and I’ll share her with you" - Jailbait

You can also get this working with an Xwhatsit Model F controller as it has a 16x8 matrix :)

What's the deal with these? Look neat enough but do they have a special switch?
