Today the space bar decided to stop working. Well it didn't stop working entirely—if you pounded on it hard enough it would reluctantly let out a space, but otherwise every sentance startedlookinglikethis. Still not to bad for IM but when trying to type code it can be a problem. Those computers are just so darn picky.
So out with the old, in with the even older. I found a really old IBM on the shelf, ways more than the computer, clangs everytime you press a key and its pre-human factors, so the rows of keys don't form a curve, its just a flat face of ancient metal buttons. Almost like the old days, typing papers on a manual typewritter. (Yes I did learn to type on a manual. I even have the box of correction tape to prove it.)
