But in order to make it "fully programmable", one
needs to open it and open the jumper that can be
easily found. This makes certain keys send an
individual code instead of a "hardwired" key
combination: For example, jumper closed && PF13
will send Shift_L+F1, whereas jumper open && PF13
will send code 181 instead (which can then be
associated to any symbol desired).

The keyboard has a PS/2 mini-DIN plug, but with
an adapter to USB, it also works nicely.

Comparable model:

Except mine is labeled "BOSCOM", but the colors
and the key caps match. Of course I have the
_german_ version. :-)
