Yes, my keyboard hates me. It's my fault. I took it from it's cozy home on the shelf and plunged it into the torturous world of my home office. I chose to abuse it almost every minute of the day. Why shouldn't it hate me? It's too small for my hands. It's a tiny collection of cheap plastic and silicone-backed keys. It's so lightweight that the very act of typing on it makes it slide across the roll-out keyboard tray on my desk. It's junk. Of course it hates me - I hate it. So, I am turning to fellow writers in hopes of finding a solution to this ongoing feud between myself and my recalcitrant and inadequate keyboard. It's my hope that you can help me find a new one that is suitable for a writer that types at the speed of little clicky sounds and can't stand having their hands cramped when resting in a standard home position. My old faithful keyboard has no letters on it. My keybanging eventually rubbed off all the screenprinted ink on the keys. Someone who was not an accomplished typist familiar with a standard 101 keyboard would not be able to use it. But, I can no longer use it because I can not find a PS2-to-USB adapter that will work with it. Now, it rests in a retirement home for peripherals that is under my desk... I'm thinking about buying one of these: http://www.pckeyboard.com (Unicomp) For computer keyboard geeks, this is the Holy Grail. It's a company that reproduces the "buckling spring" IBM keyboard style. This is the old fashioned sort of "terminal" keyboard some of you might remember using? Remember those first IBM keyboards? You know, back when they were made of metal and could double as a personal protection device? Yeah, that's it. I miss the deepset keys and expansive room of these older keyboards. My own faithful keyboard was the same size as the above, but was made of plastic. Yet, it used the buckling spring technology and also had a silicone barrier to keep out the gunk. I took it apart and cleaned it, many times. I was intimately familiar with it and I suppose that is part of my problem. But, today, this little piece of junk I'm typing on causes me so many problems that it has effected my writing. I just find it twice as difficult to write decently using it and that's starting to really tick me off something fierce. Anyway, time to end this mini-rant: Do you have any suggestions for a good keyboard that you have found compliments your writing instead of compromising it? Feel free to list your experiences! Note: I forgot about the "The Lounge," so it may have been more appropriately posted there. However, this truly does deal directly with General Writing in the physical act of accomplishing that task for those of us who use computers. So, perhaps it can stay here?
