Alps good find but maybe not great
« on: Sat, 19 October 2019, 08:19:24 »
My favorite keyboard after the 122-key Model F, appears to be in excellent condition with little or no yellowing. I would say that the price is quite fair.

The difference in characterization of crime and who commits it skews what criminality looks like demographically. "What we're seeing so far is very similar to the process that we see with Islamic violent Jihad radicalization," said former FBI Assistant Director Frank Figliuzzi, "This wanting to belong to a cause greater than yourself, wanting to get affirmation from a group who may not even know who you are or ever met you. And then feeling like you're part of this deployment, this cause. You heard him say on the clip 'It's my job to protect this.'
No, it's not your job. But you think it is. And video last night shows him walking around roaming around with the assault rifle not really doing much of protecting anything." Figliuzzi made it clear that calling these characters "troubled" is a misnomer. "I would assert," Figliuzzi continued. "that it's time we stopped using the word ‘troubled’ with regard to white young people who act out like this and start thinking about the radicalized term that we used when people of color or people of Islamic faith act out like this. This is a radicalization process that's happening. It happened with the El Paso shooter in Texas. We kept hearing he was troubled. No, he was radicalized. And it's happening online."

Cool find. Might go for it later if it’s still available.

Thanks. What's a reliable method to convert that cable to USB. Does a simple off the shelf PS/2 converter work?

Yes, and you could also buy a male-to-male mini-DIN 6 cable to eliminate an adapter.

But be careful, some "PS/2" cables are made for mice and lack enough wires inside, even though it looks like they have the right pins from the outside. That is what I do with Northgates because I loathe coiled cables.
