@qrs @phooky @zpojqwfejwfhiunz i hope the BELL button literally just rung the bell and did nothing else at all

@piggo @zpojqwfejwfhiunz @phooky the BELL key rings the *remote* bell, to alert the other operator that you want their attention.

@qrs @phooky @zpojqwfejwfhiunz oooooooooooo i thought it was a kind of ancient typewriter. for teletype it makes sense (but so funny)

@qrs @piggo @zpojqwfejwfhiunz
I love that BEL is still in unicode, and am disappointed that so few terminals support it.

@piggo @qrs @zpojqwfejwfhiunz @phooky if this is a teletype, that's exactly what it did! You'd ring the bell to get the attention of the operator on the other line.

@zpojqwfejwfhiunz looks interesting. though if i were making this as a real keyboard, i'd probably make the numpad and the f key pad a single thing (fn+number = appropriate f key)...

@zpojqwfejwfhiunz This trend of ultrawide though... remember when keyboards had that good old 4/3 ratio?
...wait

@zpojqwfejwfhiunz yeah, I LONGBOARD

*No acronym, just holds up an 8.5x11 printout of this picture*

@zpojqwfejwfhiunz Needs marhematical operators next to the numpad and the ability to shift+num for extra characters. Other than that, it's beautiful.
