When I went off to college, what my mother said she missed most was the sound of me typing away on my Olivetti, stopping occasionally to take a drag on my cigarette and swig some coffee. Fine days they were.

Anybody know where a gal can get a ribbon for a manual Adler? (A Christmas present from Mom and Dad when I was in 8th grade.) I miss using it, and sometimes the power goes out for longish stretches.

When using a computer keyboard, it helps if you make the typewriter noises when you type. Sort of ka-chunk-tap-ka-chunk-tap-tap-tap- brrring!
There are also programs available on the web to simulate the sound of typewriters as one types on a computer keyboard, some people find them very helpful. I use one which also includes background noise from a busy metropolitian daily newspaper. And re-creates the sound of a lino-type machine setting type when you push "publish" or "print".
