Welcome to the Selectric Typewriter Museum! I am Jim Forbes, curator. The Museum started out as my "new" home page in 1999, just after I bought nine Selectric typewriters from the local school district at auction for $12. The actual typewriter content is now just a small part of the Museum, which covers some of my wildly varied technical interests.
In December 2012, I began the re-launch of this web site, using the concept of Pseudo Responsive Web Design. The web page is designed to appear to be built with Responsive Web Design techniques, but it is done with no actual inquiry-response about the viewing platform. This was done because I'm too lazy to learn how to do Responsive Web Design properly. But it also cuts down on the page load time, because the page is built using very simple html code.
