    I thought most of them are - iv taken a few apart and at least all the ones iv seen have a thin membrane that covers the entire area...

    I would like to eventually get a lighted keyboard though as sometimes i have trouble seeing what's what.

      Yes the light colored keyboards are so much easier to deal with. Seems as if for the last ten plus years the trend has been to all black keyboards. Great for well light offices but in the evening and early winter mornings I like my lighting a bit more on the subdued side and find the black keyboards a PIA.
      Not everyone enjoys sitting under the light intensity of a 500 watt halogen.

      I'll keep my eyes open for one of the Unicomps that 3PH linked to, I'm sure it's light years ahead of the dollar store keyboards that come with most systems these days.

          At first glance, I thought that meant peanut butter & Fur.

            I understand some folks earn a very healthy living fixing and redesigning computer software and integration so that it will be a more usable and friendly experience. This on systems built by arguably the biggest and most successful name in the industry who has had decades of experience in refining that system.
            Then you would want others to embrace infotainment systems in cars that have a lifespan of one or two model years before it is shelved only to be replaced by "the next big thing".

            The biggest issue encountered by new car buyers are related to in car electronics and it has been for some time now, each new generation of features adds to the consumer headaches. Oh the irony!



            It's not that we don't see value in what is offered, however the execution of the concept is flawed. Just tired of having to be the test mule on my dime.

            Lexus and Porsche tied for the top spot, leading all brands for dependability in the survey released Wednesday by the consulting firm J.D. Power. But electronic problems caused trouble across the industry, pushing the average up to 156 problems per 100 vehicles. That's four problems higher than last year and the highest number since J.D. Power changed scoring methods in 2015.

              How much can a good optioned Keyboard cost ?
              Now camp are that a fully optioned car..
              One has the potential for far higher repair bills.

              Some of us just want a car or truck, not a rolling nav systems with endless gadgets..
              How did people manage to drive 60,s and 70 s cars ?
              Well a lot of us survived and here we are onnthe forum.
              Many are metal heads not Gadgetheads..

                If you think owning ones bad try working on them, im going to be out pretty soon but I pity the poor slobs that are just stepping into the field...

                iv seen main wiring harnesses go from no bigger than my thumb to over the size of my ankle,,, know a guy who just tagged a deer in a ford escape - got just the headlight a little no big whoop - till you price the headlight and it's over $1,200 bucks...

                things are way out of control in so many areas... I think allot of us have seen the greatest times to live and im not talking about whats around the corner...

                  Made some pizzas with my home grown sourdough starter.

                  One onion with cheese sauce I made and one pepperoni with oaxaca cheese (like a string cheese).

                  Both came out really well. JR

                    Don't even get me started on shoe's - it's like they last me about 4 or 5 months,,, something about the hollow lugs that used to be solid, now you wear into hollow area's and then it's really all over in short order...

                      No mold, just yeasts, the alcohols from the yeast kills the mold(usually). You don't know what you're missing!

                        Had a nice cap on rib eye steak, sauteed mushrooms, and onions, along with some roasted potatoes all cooked on the charcoal. First grilled meal of the year. Went out for a hike with the kids this morning in search of some fiddle heads, but we're a couple days early. Found some Leeks (ramps) that were ready though, but I'll save them for a fiddlehead feast. Won't be long until the morels are out too, and the asparagus starts poking up. I love springtime forest food. Also found a bunch more Chaga growing than I did in the winter.

                        Wish I was more knowledgeable about wild edible mushrooms. We found so many today, but I have no interest in rolling the dice. I've got a couple books, and have watched a bunch of videos about them, but I still think that's something to be learned first hand directly from someone. Ideally with them eating one first lol.

                          So far today:

                          Grits with sausage

                          Butterfinger Blizzard

                          I will have something healthy for dinner.

                          ......... Maybe. I'm hungry but I'm heading for the shop first.

He tried to explain the process, but it was too late as I was already hung up on the 100+ year mold image in my head and wasn't processing anything he was saying after that

                              Every time I've tried to grow a sourdough starter it's grown moldy. Would love to be able to keep one, as I love sourdough.

                                A Pakistani dish called "chicken biryani", which I purchased from a local Mexican restaurant where they called it a "ranchero special."

                                Yes, it's the Mexican restaurant that plays Korean pop music on the PA system...
