Meteorologists and scientists never imagined that there would be a need for a category 6 storm, with winds that exceed 200 miles per hour on a sustained basis, sweeping away everything in its path. Until now, such a storm wasn’t possible, so there was no need for a new category above category 5.

I think it's pretty cool that Unicomp is willing to make a custom keyboard layout for me despite the implied work involved (retooling, firmware change, etc) and do so for... not too much more, given the work involved.

Plus, once it's made, it gets a part number and other people can order it too :D.

Basically I'm ordering a 122 key keyboard (each key will have its own scancodes), but ANSI instead of ISO layout; this is the default one they have: mst3k.interlinked.me/media/TN5

Like you can't get a light-up Unicomp keyboard (imo a feature because it feels gimmicky to me), which is a non-starter for a lot of people.

Welcome $given_name! How are you doing today on this $state_of_local_atmospheric_conditions day?

Perhaps you would like to peruse some $digital_photographic_data from $numerologically_elapsed_time that our neural network determined to be more statistically significant than average in your $local_peer_group?

No need to let us know what you think. We'll be monitoring $reactions_from_puny_mammalian_brain to further tune our machine learning datasets.
