I had completely forgotten how nice this keyboard is to type on for me, despite the fact that it's very non-standard as far as where the characters are on the keys. It took about 10 seconds for me to get back into the rhythm and be typing faster on this old beast than I can on a modern keyboard. The keys make an extremely gratifying sound when you push them. I have completely forgotten all of AllWrite's hotkey commands, though. Even how to delete or cut/paste.
Looks just like a sewing machine when all folded up, and dang, it's filthy. I dunno if I even want to try to remove the years worth of dried printing inks that are all over this guy. Fingerprints of various pressmen are archived on the sun-yellowed off-beige surface and on the keyboard, in a dizzying array of Pantone colors. This old soldier has been very useful over the years.
