All,

While browsing eBay I saw a NeXT Computer lab in Hawaii for sale on eBay. For sale are Four complete NeXT Dimension cubes. I am kicking myself because this Guy was practically my Next door neighbor just a few months ago. But now I've moved to Germany and it's raining... But back on topic, the Item number: 250509421086

PS: I did bring my color slab to Germany. But it would be nice to find a German non-ADB Keyboard for it.

Yeah, too much rain here, definitely - welcome to Germany! Smile

I have some German non-ADB keyboards here, would you swap for one with US layout?

Cuby,

I am a little hesitant to trade because the German layout keyboard isn't very UNIX friendly, at least not for me. I might change my mind if I can master the key combinations. It's really a tradeoff between writing or programming...

Does anyone know if there's a NeXT equivalent of the KeyCaps applet to visually represent meta key combinations?

As for Germany, I grew up speaking both German and English, so the language is not much of a barrier for me. I am surprised at how many English texts are used here, specifically in my field of Control Theory. But the courses are all in German. A lot of businesses here use English, but for me I am trying to be technically proficient in both languages.

In Germany the upshot is my wife is glad to be back home. The downside is the rain and you almost always have to pay to use a public toilet... Now Winter is starting and I need to buy some winter clothing.
