The Prodigal Hermes
Post-Script: Here's a close-up of the left front corner, adjacent to the space bar, where the two body halves had once been glued together. A small c-clamp will served to hold both halves together tightly, but it gets in the way of my left hand while typing. Yes, I could just wedge a piece of craft foam in the gap between the two halves, while typing, to keep it from rattling; and use a belt or strap while lugging the machine by its clam shell's handle for transport. But I'm really intrigued by the idea of removing the chassis and mounting it, naked, to a nicely finished base of plywood. What do you think?
And what do you make of the font style? I love it; another reason to keep the machine and try to make it more usable.
