    Earth Symbol dial the gate

    I saw this a bunch of times, but never saw it, this is from the first episode of them dialing the gate.

    The keyboard with gate coordinate characters instead of the usual letters. Can't say I ever noticed so good catch!

    what maneth said, it was just something I noticed, I don't think we ever saw it again and I thought it was cool and thought I would share.

    I didn't notice that before either, I even sat in 'Walter's' seat and didn't notice that on the keyboard when I visited the set! It's funny how the brain doesn't take in subtle changes to familiar things sometimes! I guess that's why changing the 'm' and 'n' keys on keyboards is such an old successful joke lol!

    saw it again, in the episode serpent song- at 41:55 when martuth tells them where they can send him, it isn't as visible as the one I posted, but you can tell.

    Hi,

    Great catch.

    I recall the mid-1980s at the computer trade shows (like Comdex) that one company had a bowl full of red keyboard like "ANY" keys for free. I got one and put it on the Automatic Test Equipment for testing electrical circuit boards. Got a few laughs.

    When you think of the slips we see (such as a solid concrete floor between the hall and the elevator), this is a great detail.

    Hi,

    1) Is there a font set of all the dialing computer glyphs?

    2) What glyph is on which QWERTY key?

    Thanks.

    http://www.thescifiworld.net/fonts.htm has downloadable fonts

    But now that you mention it as I"m skimming through the glyphs, I can't even ID some of them. The Y looks like an inverted Libra but the rest in the QWERTY don't look like any of the others.

    Hi,

    I hope this comes through. With the StarGate glyphs, I had to change the file to a JPG.

    Hi,

    I want to attach the JPG file reply 05 26 2017.jpg to this message. It is 133KB in size. I give up for the night.

    If anyone wants the PDF version or a JPG version of my response (which the Stargates Glyphs are removed when a cut and paste text), please let me know.

    Hi,

    I guess I was not clear about QWERTY and Stargate glyphs. I was thinking of a keyboard cover. There is one company I've found who will print items on the keyboard cover. I need which glyphs are printed on which keys.

    The attached JPG shows my attempt at placing which glyphs on which QWERTY keys.

    Haha that is fantastic! Thinking out loud here but having a picture of the gate symbols assigned to a standard qwerty keyboard we could make a font mirroring this layout (just for funsies)
