Wyse 900109-01 60 Green Terminal
« on: Mon, 19 June 2017, 05:06:32 »
If I was in Melbourne I would be all over this sh1t.

Wyse 60 terminals.

The seller started out with 10!

Of course I would get it mainly for the keyboard but would be fun to try and connect it to my server.

Hey Rowdy, tempted?
The only BS I
want to hear is

Tempted, yes :))

I have a Link terminal very similar to this - even the screen status bar is the same, except mine is amber.

Mine has MX blacks.  By the age they should be vintage blacks, but the Cherry logos are all modern-looking.  Mine is a nice terminal to type on though, very smooth.

Too many reasons stacking up against me getting one (or five) of these though, unfortunately, not least of which is that we are almost certainly moving house again, and I've got 3 terminals I already don't use to move already.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

At that price—for the whole terminal, including keyboard—it would be hard to resist.
