.comment: The Search for a Truly Great Keyboard - page 5
The Weak Link
The Ortek's key layout is very close to that of the IBM terminal "Mighty Wurlitzer" -- so close, in fact, that I'm inspired to do a little hardware hacking. (Yeah, yeah, when you hack code you can accomplish things and you can risk screwing up stuff on your hard drive, but hardware hacking can burn your house down. Real men have soldering irons.) I may need to try to cook up a PC cable for the big IBM keyboard and see if I can get it to work. The "Record" and "Play" buttons on it suddenly make sense.
If I pull it off, I'll let you know. If you never hear from me again, it didn't work out as planned -- in which case the Ortek is the best bet.
