Musings from the desert written on vintage machines
Nice find, that sage green is quite attractive. Hope you get it to work 100%.First time visitor here, thanks to Ted Munk's reporting.Cheers.
Welcome Ton! I used my phone for the snapshot and it didn't do a very good job of capturing the color. It's actually more of an aqua blue. I'll try to post a better picture tomorrow.
Well Ton, after spending WAY too much time trying to get the color of this thing corrected in Photoshop, I think I was wrong. The closest approximation I can come up with (after staring at it so long I see it when I close my eyes) is Seafoam Green. Either way, it's awfully pretty :)
I know the feeling. My first hardly ever gets used, and I want to make room but I don't know if I can part with it.
I can't believe I'm already having to think about space for my collection. I started looking because I wanted to get a few machines to use for creative writing. I need to stop chasing the thrift store rush.
Good luck trying to shake off the Thrift Store Rush. That monkey grips like heroin just wishes it could :D
Great thriftin' find! I have yet to encounter an SCM ultraportable in the wild, so that was a very lucky score (Galaxies by the bucketsfull, but never a Corsair).I'm curious to see your new Brother too, I love it when I see a Brother on a thrift store shelf. To me they have the same sort of charm as an old Datsun 1600 Roadster, and this year has seen them popping up in thrifts more often than previous years.
Nice metaphor Ted. I was just thinking last night the Brother reminds me of the early Honda CB750 motorcycle. Same kind of aesthetic. I'll get pics up today if the light cooperates.
