You can either buy clothes or buy keyboards, it's that simple. No one who is not very rich can do both. Pay no attention to your clothes and no attention at all to the mode, and buy your clothes for comfort and durability, and you will have the clothes money to buy keyboards.

A nice clean one, too. With 4 days to go, I imagine it'll be bid up to between $150–200.

BTW, we usually refer to these as "F-AT", since FAT means something else (it's a file system).

I purposely referred to this as FAT as a lame pun I guess.

Yo, that's some IBM FAT fo sho... :))

Sweet looking board.  I can't believe they command that much now.  :eek:  I remember just a few years ago they were well below $200.  (Or my memory was bad--one or the other  ;D)

Oh, LOL. I can't speak for everyone, but I love file-system-based puns—always have, always will.

Nope, your memory's fine... Just late last year they were still around $100, but it was clear they'd being going up quickly. Wish I could've talked my wife into buying a few.  :?|

Fake news and disinformation are just a few of the symptoms of what’s wrong. The problem is something far more fundamental. The problem is these vastly powerful algorithmic engines are blackboxes. And, at the business end of the operation, each individual user only sees what each individual user sees. The great lie of social media has been to claim it shows us the world. And the follow-on deception: That their technology products bring us closer together. In truth, social media is not a telescopic lens — as the telephone actually was — but an opinion-fracturing prism that shatters social cohesion by replacing a shared public sphere and its dynamically overlapping discourse with a wall of increasingly concentrated filter bubbles. Social media is not connective tissue but engineered segmentation that treats each pair of human eyeballs as a discrete unit to be plucked out and separated off from its fellows. It’s a trypophobic’s nightmare. Or the panopticon in reverse — each user bricked into an individual cell that’s surveilled from the platform controller’s tinted glass tower. Little wonder that lies spread and inflate so quickly via systems that are not only hyper-accelerating the rate at which information can travel but deliberately pickling people inside a stew of their own prejudices. - Natasha Lomas 2018

On the plus side, it's good to see so many people getting rid of their FAT. (Early New Year's resolutions?)

Yeah, saw that—wonder what happened to the tabs? Did they pry the case open without a hex driver, and broke 'em?
