Yesterday the sixth keyboard I possessed just died – it was a keyboard from cherry – one with all those buttons on it that nobody seems to use. I never did actually… but now it’s gone and the “new” one was already waiting:
YES! It’s one of those very very old IBM keyboards whose original design is from 1985. The one that has a very enjoyable “key-klick” not speaking of the comfortable typing experience…
So you may say: This keyboard is more than 11 years old – that’s quite old… yeah! But it’s new!!
How comes that? I got my hands on a quite old IBM Netserver which worked for over 10 years for a company here…and this keyboard was attached to the machine. It even had a dirt cover attached and was not used for all the time… So it’s almost new. After all a real pleasure to code with this gadget.
