Keyboards

My old Fujitsu “aircraft carrier” has moved on. The Little Woman’s USB system died today so my old PS/2 keyboard leapt into the breach. I’m using another usb/firewire keyboard. I hate it. It’s too small. The keys are mushy. You push and push until you get a character. There’s no perceptible hysteresis. The travel is about double what I want. I could get used to it or I could buy a new keyboard, eh? 😉

Fujitsu now thinks “flat” and “thin” is “in”. I don’t. I want a great key with precise travel and give and I want curved because my fingers are on hinges… Cherry makes some great keyboards rated for tens of millions of clicks.

Well, there’s another reason to keep living, to find the perfect keyboard.
