This machine may look like an early laptop, but it's not. It's a smart keyboard!

It's classed as a Wordprocessor, but that doesn't really fit, either.

What it is, though, is a PC/Mac keyboard with a built-in screen, memory and simple text editor. You bring it with you, type your notes, and when you get back home, you plug it into your desktop computer, start up your favorite word processing software and press a key on the keyboard. It will then 'replay' the keypresses needed to enter the same text on your desktop computer.

  • Comments will not be visible until I manually OK them.
  • You don't need to give an email address if you don't want to. But if you do, you decide whether or not it is visible. (No addresses will be given to third-parties, it's only there to make it easier for me to get back to you)
  • This script WILL log your IP adress.
  • Profanities, 'L337' speak, links to unrelated stuff like Pr0n and online gambling will result in your IP being banned, a message being sent to your ISP and anything else nasty I can think of...
  • Suspicious HTML in the comments field will also cause me to give you hell.
  • While I don't have any user registration here, that's no reason to use a 'nick' belonging to someone else.
