Timneh versus keyboard

I think you know who will win this battle. Timneh wins by KO. Good bye 7 dollar keyboard you fought well.

I see things like this and I immediately think of my £200 keyboard, and I begin to sweat

Re: Timneh versus keyboard

hahaha, these birds are awesome, thankfully Enzo will only chew door frames....all of them without exception. Oh, and socks, if i leave my sock draw open when I take a shower she will know and i will have holes in all of my socks.

Maybe i introduce Enzo to my keyboard it would be a lot cheaper to replace lol.

Seven bucks is a small price to pay for a happy Timneh!

Are you another clicky keyboard aficionado? Says the possessive owner of a Das Keyboard?

Anybody have an old IBM Model 80 PS/2 keyboard they are willing to part with? There’s a group that mods them for modern computers and I really want to do one. That was my favorite keyboard of all time.

yep. Though in comparison to the rest of the PC that keyboard is peanuts. Managed to win a court claim a few years ago so made a monster of a PC with the pay-out

Re: Timneh versus keyboard

Think of how many cheap keyboards have been discarded into landfills over the years? Considering the cost of bird toys, $7 is a pretty good price!

Re: Timneh versus keyboard

It took her awhile too. She makes sure she gets the little plastic piece out and everything. Totally worth it just gotta watch out for the bigger keys usually have some metal clip to hold them in place. I fought for my enter key quite a few times before turning it over to the grey Tasmanian devil. Lol she loves human toys way more than parrot toys.

Re: Timneh versus keyboard

My cousin is a retired ibm guy I'll ask him if he has any keyboards still.
