Or maybe he needs a Steampunk theme for his blog now. I liked it tho, could hear the "clack-clack" of the keys as I read it.

I was gonna have one of my kids do a cave drawing which I would then make a daguerrotype from...

Strings said...

Honestly Tam: I wouldn't put it past Marko to do just that...

Funny: my captcha was "colds". Like I DIDN'T know?

Mark said...

Nah.

Yellow snow.

Maybe he'll utilize the Sherlock Holmes Dancing Men cipher.

I remember when daisy wheels were the nads. I also remember re-inking typewriter ribbons to get another usage out of them. Oh God, I'm older than mud.

Come to think of it, I still have the old Remington down in the gun room. The portable typewriter, not the rifle.

Hey, comes the EMP burst, I may be the height of technology again. Gotta get me some more vacuum tubes.

I dumped the manual typewriter in the last move as it was getting to hard to find ribbons for it. I do agree with Marco that manual has a certain commitment to the words.

Heh, when tech-supporting over the phone I still catch myself telling the person, "now, hit the return key"
and its 50/50 that I get a "huh??" out of the person
