Alright, I need to do some dumb shit to make myself feel better so that I can go back to being a functional member of society.

I'm looking for a keyboard about the size of a model M SSK, with decent-ish switches for less than $200, and maybe a 17-inch CRT.

Anyone know where I could get either of those new or new-ish?

Alright, here's an updated list of the dumb shit I'm going to try and purchase this weekend:

- Various IBM thinkpads from 1995 - 2002 (via craigslist)
- CRT monitors (trying thrift stores, if no luck then CL)
- a daisy wheel or dot-matrix printer (???)
- USB -> PS/2 keyboard and mouse adapters (microcenter)
- a bunch of cables (mc)
- a bunch of other CF card adapters for HDD and PCMCIA (mc)
- a good keyboard and mouse (mc?)
- an old PC with a 5 1/4" floppy drive (?)

Add to this list: tripod, mixing board, headphone rack, any neat looking aurio gear I can find, vintage posters, any computer or video games I stumble across for basically any platform that are from pre 1985 or are on floppy disc, and various midi gear.

If everything goes according to plan, I'll finally start filming my damn tech show on Sunday.
