Bugs in computers and typewriters…

Today my window on the world got shrunk to 1200x600px. ):

Current machines in the rotation, restin' in the Typin' Corral

My current outside typing station...

The trees blooming and blossoming

Pomegranate blossoms!

UPDATE: Turns out I had the “Spyware Protection “Designed To Protect”‘ malware, which both Malwarebytes and AVG refused to clean off. I ended up curing it by re-installing the drive, booting in ‘safe mode with networking’ and running Hitman Pro 3.5 – and that finally did the trick. Now I can finally post my typecast, as the EeePC doesn’t have drivers loaded for the picky-ass scanner I use.

  1. Well, thank you for the heads-up. I hadn’t checked “Legend of Bill” in a while, and may not do so for a while more. How sad, because it really is a good diversion when I need a good laugh.

    As for the question of why Smith Corona couldn’t make a machine with fully-interchangable type slugs… 1) it would be expensive, 2) the average user would lose at least part of every set, and 3) it had sort of been done (see Blickensderfer or IBM Selectric). My fantasy project, based on skills from a past career, would be to build a reproduction of a Blickensderfer, but to use the “golfball” element from an IBM. How cool would that be?

  2. it would be mucho frio!
