Love the Hermes! Is that yours?Looks just like mine except for the ribbon and keyboard layout.
No, it's Peter's (http://manualentry.blogspot.com/)I liked the machine, but not the typeface. "Modern futuristic" typeface. How is the keyboard layout different?
How did it go?
Its a French-Swiss QWERTZ keyboard. So, I have to remember to flop my 'z' and 'y' keys when typing so I get a handful of 'layz' for 'lazy' and 'awaz' for 'away'. Its also lacking a dollar sign, but I do get a lot of French, Swiss and German special keys, which is kind of cool.Yeah, I am not much for that techno typeface, but a lot of other typospherians love it. I'm more of a pica guy.
It went well. I'm looking forward to breaking in the place and having it be THE typewriter cafe.
The next type-in will be February 19. I'm going to actually promote it this time.
Oh, yes: and every third Saturday after that.
we'll have to get back up there and I'll set one up in Tacoma as well
