IBM Wheelwriter 1000 - $25

Nice Wheelwriter keyboard. $25 / best offer + free shipping. Worth it just for the one piece keys.

Therapy is expensive so I buy keyboards and bike parts.

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.
The Article II clause gave readers some guidance by giving two specific examples of impeachable misconduct: “Treason” and “Bribery”. Both were “high” offenses indeed.
”Treason” – defined elsewhere in the Constitution – meant waging war against America or betraying her to an enemy power. “Bribery” – secretly bending laws to favor the rich and powerful – involved official misconduct of a highly malignant sort, threatening the very soul of a democratic republic committed to equality under law. In the case of a president who did not take bribes but gave them – in effect paying men to vote for him – the bribery would undermine the very legitimacy of the election that brought him to office.

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?
