Yeah.  It's a laptop computer so for now I've moved it (and its docking station) to the middle of the desk and am using its built in keyboard.  I like the extra amount of desk space that is freed up but I'm not sure I can get used to having the big monitor off to one side.

I bought a Unicomp when the trackpoint buttons stopped working on my model M. It barely lasted 2 years, and now it randomly decides chunks of the keyboard don't work. Very disappointed.

That's not encouraging. I bought a Unicomp recently.


I'll go right back to Matias when this one goes.

Anyone know how to fix a Model M? The space bar on my best one stopped registering.

If you feel comfortable opening it up, it's likely dust or dirt in between the membrane sheets or a broken/corroded trace... which can be fixed with a trace pen. Model Ms are infinitely repairable.

Hmm. That does sound feasible. The thing is, I removed the keycap and spring, and if I touch the hammer underneath with the tip of a small screwdriver, the key registers. So I might just have to reassemble it properly? I've read something about "Sandy's Chopstick Method" which I don't quite understand.

*sigh*

This crappy non-mechanical keyboard I'm on right now is a distinct non-pleasure to type on. But it fits in the tray under my desk, which my M didn't.

You need a larger tray.

I'm a larger Trey, but I won't fit under your desk.

Entertained at the thought of IG finding fleeb under his desk..

If he clicks when I jab him with my fingers, he's got the job.
