My newest manual laptop

I had another great day exploring a thrift store. I found a Olympia SM8 from 1976 still in its case. Someone had messed up the ribbon, but I cut out the bad part and reinstalled it. Types great. No other adjusting needed. I did clean the surface of some scuffs and stains and it looks new. It’s funny how things change and you don’t notice. I can’t find any typing paper. It is all printer or copy paper. You have to order typing paper online.

The case had a 25 dollar sticker for a “desktop computer”. I thought that was funny.
