A funny thing happened today. I went to an electronics shop to find some mounts for the Model01. I was looking through the available camera mounts, trying to imagine how I’d use them to achieve my desired setup (~40 degrees tenting), when a helpful member of the staff came up to me and asked if they help: what kind of camera do I have, what I’m looking for in a mount, and so on. He looked a bit surprised when I told him it’s not for a camera, but for my ergonomic, split keyboard.
But that’s not the funny part.
The funny part is that he knew what I was talking about!
– The one with the wooden enclosure? Model01 or what’s it called?
– So cool! I’ve been following their updates! Did you know there’s this Hungarian guy working on their firmware?
– Haha, yes! We’re everywhere. I also happen to know that person.
– No waaay!
– Yep. We’re pretty close too.
– Tell him I said hi!
– Will do!
But that’s still not the end of it!
We chatted a bit while selecting the mount (this one by the way), he was very enthusiastic, very nice fellow. We ended up exchanging e-mail addresses, I said I’ll Cc him when saying hi. He gave me his, and I gave him mine, so he’ll expect it, and wouldn’t mark it as spam or anything. I start telling him my address…
– Now you’re fucking with me.
That face he had, it was priceless. The sudden realization that I’m that Hungarian guy. So sweet.
Will shop there again! Luckily, they also have laptop sleeves, and I happen to need one for transporting… something that is not a laptop.
