The Buzz Out Loud Keyboard - If I build it, Will they come

by Redhats Q / August 22, 2006 7:40 AM PDT

I have a pretty good set of plans for a BOL keyboard now, and I am happy to start making some.

I am looking at key reassignment via a small LCD on the display, or maybe just some special keystroke keys or something like that .

But anyway.

2 questions:

1 Does anyone else want one ??

2. what keys do you want changed, and what to

ok, there better be a 3

3. Will the BOL crew let me make it, and if so, how much will the royalties be .... Can I pay in Bacon ???

If we sell enough, Maybe we could Fly you to New Zealand for a Pork Hangi. If you don't know what a Hangi is - Google it (with Google even)

For now a BOL button (goodbye tacky windows logo) Tom Molly and Veronica Buttons, a modified caps lock, and ANY KEY key and programmability built into the keyboard

ANd I'll try to get Tom Molly and Veronica to sign it (or at least some of them) ... at least for the spectaclefest special edition

Maybe that one could be in Cnet colors

I'm writing code, for it, and I'll try to get a mockup done as soon as possible

PS@ and USB as well as Mac Linux and Windows versions should all be options.

If you need keys changed tell me what you would like

The Caps lock wont work unless you press Shift caps lock, otherwise capslock is just another shift

Yet to decide on the tom molly and veronica buttons function(s) any ideas ???

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
