I enjoy mechanical machines. That would be opposed to computerized machines. For instance, I prefer cars where gears and pulleys (or whatever) move when you depress the brake pedal and a mechanical process stops the car versus the brake pedal communicating with the computer that runs the vehicle to engage the stopping mechanism.

Perhaps that’s part of the charm of typewriters. Whatever it is, I now own one. It clacks pleasingly and makes lovely dents in the paper where the letters strike. It’s not yet fully functional – the ribbon lifter doesn’t lift – but since it’s a mechanical machine, I have high hopes that gears, levers, springs, whatever can be adjusted so that it functions properly once more.
