This article doesn't annoy the crap out of you?
"There are only a few repairmen who still know how to oil a machine, replace a tired ribbon, or realign tangled keys."

Gee, I wonder how I replace my ribbons without a qualified repairman!

And 950 dollars for an Olivetti Valentine!!!!!!!!!?????? Down with this analog renaissance.

That was certainly a grumpy comment.

It is a little simplistic, implying that you need to haul down to a repair shop the moment your typebars clash. You're allowed the rage-face, Ryan.
