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.
The Koch brothers were schooled in a political philosophy that asserted the only role of government is to provide security and to enforce property rights. When their "libertarian" ideas proved decidedly unpopular with voters, the Koch brothers and their allies chose another path. If they pooled their vast resources, they could fund an interlocking array of organizations that could work in tandem to influence and ultimately control academic institutions, think tanks, the courts, statehouses, Congress, and, they hoped, the presidency. These organizations were given innocuous names such as Americans for Prosperity. Funding sources were hidden whenever possible. This process reached its apotheosis with the allegedly populist Tea Party movement, abetted mightily by the Citizens United decision -- a case conceived of by legal advocates funded by the network. And their efforts have been remarkably successful. - Mayer 2017

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?
