As most of you know, I've been cooking up a way to re-key typewriters that have fallen victim to keychoppers. I've partnered up with another tlogger across the pond to begin collecting machines before they make their ways to the dump and we're going to throw several re-keying ideas at them and see what sticks. Our next course of action is to begin collecting machines, which is going to require contacting the sellers of cut keys and key jewelry, et cetera, and see if they still have any of the disfigured machines or would be willing to sell them to us in the future. Wish us luck on this.
While in the R&D stage of this project, I feel we're almost there, and we're anxious to get started. Last night (well, early this morning, to be technical) I got inspired to write a different sort of manifesto...an anti-keychopper manifesto. I had to write it out by hand, as Darling was sleeping, but I got it typed out this evening.
Please take it. Save it, share it, post it wherever you see fit. It was meant to be shared.
If you like it enough and feel strongly enough about its message, that is.
