Linux/Tux Keyboard For Sale – Oxfam Fundraiser

As most people may (or may not) know. I’m doing the Oxfam 100km walk. We need to raise $2,500 to donate to Oxfam to take part, plus our entry fees.

Thanks to a lot of people we have $870 at this time, which is fantastic, but only 35% of the way there! Since I have a few cool toys I no longer need, I’ve decided to sell a few things here on my blog. I’m using my blog because other sites like trademe will a) take a cut of the proceeds and b) you can deposit the money right onto our Oxfam account and i post it to you, and I have a fairly high technical/Linux following who will be more inclined to want it.

So to start it off, Im selling this AS NEW Linux Keyboard. Its a standard decent keyboard with low profile keys. The standard Windows key is non-existant and has been replaced with a Tux Key. Other than that its fairly average.

I was given this by a visiting person from Zareason who make and sell these along with other Linux specific hardware. I opened it, tried it, then never actually used it. If i can find the mouse I will throw that in as well (though its just a normal mouse). You can view the keyboard specs and more pics here

So please place your best bid in the comments. You can make as many as you want and fight it out. Bidding stops when theĀ  nobody has bid for more than 2 days or when the trailwalker starts early April (in which case i hope like heck you pay!).

The new EEE PC in a Keyboard

Very cool – but what use is the screen seriously other than perhaps diagnostics when plugging it into an external. Not to mention i cant imagine having a keyboard with 6 or 7 wires coming out of it, it would be somewhat restrictive for movement in any way.

Great LAN computer though or perhaps media PC stuck onto something (Embeded in a TV Cabinet or Coffee Table?)
