Two Years and Counting


My normally sloppier than this desk.  I really do type with small typewriters alongside the PCs.
Generally it is hard to see the surface of my desk.  I generally have a bit more on it.  Recently I replaced the 24 channel mixer with a smaller 8 channel and put the processors all in a small rack under my radio desk beside my servers and put the CD/DVD duplicators in church.

  1. Congratulations on two years of blogging. I think we all wonder when we first start our blogs whether anyone will ever read them at all. It's nice when we start to build followers and page views.

  2. Congrats on two years of blogging, Bill! Yours is one that I regularly read, even if I don't know the first thing about ham radio. Ten-four, good buddy! (See? Told ya I know nothing about ham radio).

  3. Well done. I have always enjoyed reading your blog. Great to see you're still about and ready to write!
    And that looks like a very nice Olympia you have there.

    1. Scott,
      I'm glad I did not render the SM4 to the scrap heap. It has turned out to be one of the best 2 typers I have (Underwood Standard Portable 4 Bank and the SM4). The SM4 far out performs either of my SM7s.

  5. Happy Birthday Bill. I wonder about page views, a lot of mine seem to come from Romanian robots so, even if no real person clicks on one of pages, I still get page views. I'm glad you like the SM4. They always feel like a very grown-up machine. Purposeful and bussinesslike. The Jeep of post-war typewriters. And I'm impressed you have a desk big enough to fit so much on though I suppose a smaller surface like mine makes one tidy up more often.

    1. I often wonder if all hits on mine from Russia are spambots.

  8. Ooh, I like that word Ted!

    Happy blogiversary Bill! Maybe the reason your blog gets visited when you aren't active is because people use it for research? I know I do sometimes when I remember someone had written a great post about one of the typewriters I found.

    1. Hopefully my machine posts are helpful. I have manuals to make and post too. One reason for my lack of posting lately is the overly long typecast for the SM4 repairs. I have tried to edit it and make it shorter. So far I think I will let it long and post it in the not too distant future.

    Sorry for the deletion, I wrote a very confused message.
