I deliberately put it in JS so no one would think to buy it.

All things that you can type on a typewriter.

The question is whether YOU ever typed them (or anything else) on a typewriter? If yes, what kind of typewriter was it.

Maybe we can start a thread of which typewriters one used:

I'll start:

Brother
IBM
Olympia
Hermes

(probably more, but I wouldn't know the names).

Typed in Hebrew and English.

And while we're on nostalgia lane, which Hebrew DOS PC wordprocessors did you use:

WordMill
Einstein
Mince
QText
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

When we had a (manual) typewriter, my older sisters never let me near it. No idea what the brand was. We did have a digital one (Canon) brand after that - you had three lines before it printed out to change mistakes (!!).

Do you want to play a board game, digitally or in Lakewood NJ? PM me. (Can be asynchronous, i.e. take turns whenever)

Expensive!

Lego has been pushing complex 18+ sets targeted to adult enthusiasts, many such sets are priced in the hundreds of dollars. This one is 10k pieces: https://www.lego.com/en-us/product/eiffel-tower-10307

Ask Lego, thatís how they market it. Perhaps because 18 is the prevalent demarcation point for adulthood  and their target audience is adults.

IMHO it needs a 5 line display (at least). A built-in printer and OCR scanner would also make it more useful.
