The big news is the new 5/5A service which takes Citybus deep into Plymstock. Recent changes within the Plymouth bus market have resulted in reductions in the amount of bus services FirstBus operates within Plymstock. This has created an opportunity to restore one of Plymstock’s most popular bus routes which First had operated for many years prior to April 08. Therefore, from 25 October 2009 Plymouth Citybus will be restoring much of what were First Devon and Cornwall’s Services 5 and 6.

This antique typewriter has been modified to work as a USB Keyboard for PC, Mac, or even iPad! That's right -- it's a beautiful and fully functional computer keyboard! It can type all uppercase and lowercase letters, numerals, and punctuation marks. Many non-standard keys, such as F1-F12, Esc, Ctrl, and so on are available with special toggle keys. By request, I can connect the Enter key to the typewriter's return carriage lever (the lever that moves to the next line on the paper), but by default it is accessed with a key on the far right side of the keyboard.
The modification leaves the typewriter looking, feeling, and working like a regular typewriter. You can use it as your primary computer keyboard, or turn off your monitor altogether and type on paper while saving your work to disk. If this item is not your style, you can customize your own typewriter with our "Easy-Install" Conversion Kit, only $99!
