I mean Olympia SG3, of course.

PS: Check out Ted Munk’s Smith-Corona, which he mentioned in a comment on Type the Clouds.

    Too weird! Computer programming on a typewriter? But of course, I am a suitable emerald shade of envy :)

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest that this typewriter was used for manual and textbook writing.

    The SG3, for some reason or other, has always reminded me of the SDF-1. If not familiar, the SDF-1 was the spaceship humans piloted against the anti-human Zentradi in the anime Robotech (talking american version here). The coolest thing about the SDF-1 was that even though it was on a massive scale, it could transform into a warrior robot: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUTNFSR6bHg
    I remember watching as a young kid, tears running down my face, as Zentradi general Khyron kamikazed his own incapacitated ship into the SDF-1, killing many of the heroes and ultimately, destroying the SDF-1 beyond repair.
    It's weird, every now and again, ill wake up puzzled that ive dreamt some scene of the episodes, apparently perfectly preserved in my subconscious.
    Anyways, the SG3 is the SDF-1 in my eyes.
