Any way to use a terminal model M?
« on: Thu, 14 February 2019, 00:07:31 »
The long story short is I accedentaly purchased a 1395666 model M keyboard and a separate ps/2 cable. Its only come to my attention that terminal keyboards wont work with modern computers. Are there any cheap ($30-$40) ways to make it work with modern computers?

If not, any tips on selling them?

Look for "Soarer's converter". It should auto-detect which type of IBM protocol the keyboard is using.

You could get a $5 Arduino Pro Micro, solder it up with connectors (or inside the keyboard) and download the firmware to it, or you could buy a ready-made one on eBay for a bit more.

What the researchers found is that after controlling for gender, age, education level, and ideology, NFC [Need for Chaos] was strongly correlated with a willingness to spread hostile rumors online. Younger, less educated men were more likely to have a strong NFC, as were people who were lonely and perceived themselves as lacking social status. NFC is associated with support for Donald Trump, which makes sense. Both Trump and to a lesser, and in a qualitatively different way, Sanders offered the 2016 electorate — including all the susceptible, alienated and disenchanted folks who comprise it — a radical departure from the norm, giving voice to sentiments that had probably been bubbling in their followers’ heads for quite a long time.

The responses to three of the statements in particular were “staggering,” the paper says: 24 percent agreed that society should be burned to the ground; 40 percent concurred with the thought that “When it comes to our political and social institutions, I cannot help thinking ‘just let them all burn’ ”; and 40 percent also agreed that “we cannot fix the problems in our social institutions, we need to tear them down and start over.”
