R.I.P. Model M

I just retired my IBM Modem M keyboard. I rescued it myself from my old high school, and popped off every keycap and cleaned them individually with a toothbrush.
Unfortunately, someone who I live with obtained for me this Logitech Cordless Freedom keyboard/mouse set for Christmas. I like my old Model M’s noise, but I also like having the extra shortcut keys on the top of the keyboard. The cordless optical mouse is nice too — I just can’t figure out why sometimes, when I leave it alone, the LED on the bottom of the mouse flashes in time with my SCSI bus activity light. Anyways, it was a lovely gift. But if I happen to break this keyboard (which I have done before — I am hard on keyboards) the Model M is coming out again.
