Yup...

And I've learned also that IBM sold the technology to Lexmark who then some years ago sold it to another company. Trying to remember the name, because you can actually buy keyboards brand new with this technology (tempted to but don't have the money atm).

Ah.. right.. Unicomp.

I should give it to you for your birthday!  Except for the fact that I cling to it as life...and it's not your birthday anymore. (*sucker*)

*lol*

Don't _really_ need it.. I'll get one eventually though -- tired of replacing keyboards.

I do like the way that was written though!

Speaking of things I haven't seen in awhile...where's Taz?  He's been gone forever.  He said he was going to be "indisposed" for awhile, but it seems like he's been gone longer than he planned...

Yeah the whole board has been too quiet for a long time. I know we're all busy people, but it has been a bit depressing to visit week after week and see nothing happening. But thanks to Metty we now have two different threads going! See all the good you do! Cheers....
