< An affordance

~commgeek

I have a tub, maybe two, of IBM Model M’ish (don’t know the exact model numbers) but they’re the ones with the function keys on the top, not the side.

They weren’t terribly useful as I had transitioned to Macs and the Mac USB wouldn’t handle the simple PS/2 to USB adapters that were common. I finally found an adapter that worked, at of all places, Radio Shack. I went back and bought like six.

I quickly learned to have a membrane keyboard also plugged in to switch to when needed as I had the same experience with my wife complaining about “the teletype”.
