I apologize if I'm breaking protocol by posting something that is of no use to anyone, but I just wanted to say thanks for these videos. They're incredibly cool.

Re: Film Links

Hey!!  Wait a minute, now!!!  Just who out there is saying something is of no use to anyone?!!  And who is anyone, or the one who is speaking on behalf of anyone?!  My point is this:  There is NOTHING that is of no use to anyone--there is someone out there who might find it rather useful for his or her purposes.  And I don't think there is anyone who would even want to speak for everyone and deciding whether or not something is completely useless.  Not even Uwe, our moderator, could or would do that.  The way I understand it, every viewpoint is welcome.  That's what a forum is and should be--a place where all viewpoints are expressed.

Re: Film Links

The past experiences here were captured for posterity but I wonder if they knew that the typewriter would still have its uses today. Typewriters were a Luddites dream. A big part of the war involved sending coded messages and the way to avoid interception from radio signals for instance, was by typewriters. Love the videos!
