Re: Re: A very annoying problem with the EzR 2030 Dv


Hi,
Yeah, I have os x, I was the guy who asked about the light thing and I
did the equivalent of that in my system. I currently have a diologue
with one of the co-founders of tm about it and intend to do some
testing on some differnt systems (other towers, laptops, cubes, etc.)
to see if it is persistent. If it is, I will need to replace it, if
not, there is some obscure reaction to the keyboard which only occurs
with my machine.

Regarding the chance of someone knowing how peripherals and cpu's
exchange nods upon start-up, how could the ascii code for F12 (which
extends the cd tray on a mac) as soon as the screen becomes active?

Thanks for the assistance.

    - August

August,
I have an idea: Try moving the EZR a little bit to the right.

If you look at the underside of the EZR 2030, you will notice its feet 
on the right side are inset a bit, so the back one sits neatly on the 
eject key when the EZR is centered over a PowerBook keyboard.

I'm pretty sure you're using a PoweBook because desktop Macs don't put 
Eject on the F12 key.
Cheers,
Marcus

Re: A very annoying problem with the EzR 2030 Dv


Wow, that's crazy.  Sorry I can't help, I don't have any macs, and I've 
never heard of that problem (but it's not like I do tech support for TM, so 
it's not that strange that I wouldn't know).  

I hope one of the other people's suggestions helps!

Dvorak typewriter (found one!)


Hi Everyone,
    I thought you might be interested in seeing my Dvorak typewriter 
which I managed to locate and purchase after a brief but fairly 
comprehensive nationwide search. It's a Smith-Corona Model 250 
electric. It was manufactured--I believe--sometime between 1960 and 
1970. I have posted 5 photos in the "photos section" of this forum. 
Enjoy.
    Mr. Horne, it looks like your exclusive Dvorak Typewriter Owners' 
Club just got a little less exclusive!

More about IMB Selectrics and Dvorak


About a month ago I had a very interesting telephone conversation 
with Bill Skillman in Oregon about converting an IBM Selectric 
typewriter to the Dvorak keyboard layout. Mr. Skillman probably knows 
more about Selectrics than any other living person and is a really 
nice guy to boot. He worked on the team that perfected the first 
series of Selectrics. To set the record straight: 

1) IBM NEVER sold "golf ball" type elements with the Dvorak layout. 
Camwil, Inc of Hawaii did, in the 1970s. Camwil manufactured their 
own elements.
2) IBM DID sell limited numbers of Selectric typewriters that had the 
Dvorak layout. The Dvorak layout was accomplished not through the use 
of a special type-ball, but re-working the guts of the machine. On a 
Selectric, beneath each key is a "coded interposer" that determines 
how the type-ball will rotate and tilt to strike the platen. IBM 
swapped the location of the interposers and rearranged the keytops to 
make a Dvorak typewriter. I would be extremely interested to know if 
anyone has ever seen a factory IBM Selectric with Dvorak.

    Mr. Skillman has done several Selectric Dvorak conversions. It's 
pretty labor intensive from what he told me. He told me that 
the "velocity control" issue isn't a big deal; he can tweak the 
velocity settings for each key so that the period, comma, and semi-
colon won't punch through the paper. I was seriously considering 
having him convert a Selectric II with correction capability for me 
(to the tune of $495--including a re-furbished Selectric), until I 
found the SCM 250.
