I recently bought an Eizo EV2736WFS-GY in hope it'd be more white than grey, since it'd have been a good match for my new desk, but as it turns out it's pretty beige-grey. Pretty much the CRT color, wohoo! Not a very pleasant surprise for me, but if you're in the market for 90s' color monitors this ...

Acanthopis: that would work, but a PCB just makes everything feel a bit more rigid, and it looks a lot better too, so I'm not too sure. Findecanor: I thought modifying the PCB would be hard and you make it sound a lot harder than I'd thought, so maybe I'll just skip that. Modding the keycap sounds l...

Hi people, and welcome to what's called a necrobump! After almost 9 months with my Phantom I'm getting the urge to build another, even better, one.

I'd say you can definitely put an important object in the center of a picture and still take a great photo - my belief is it's important to acknowledge there's definitely no set rules for photography. Although there are guidelines, it's important not to mistake them for rules. However, in most cases...

19%...That's pretty ruthless :( Finland it's 24%, plus tolls if they are sufficiently hi also... 25% in Sweden, I win! 0% additional toll fees on electronics though, which is quite neat. You always get a pesky penalty fee of 100SEK (~11.4€) from the Swedish Post though. In before the Hungarians I g...

Yup, I can confirm I didn't lube them. ;) I hadn't realized before that other switches than Blacks could've been lubed by Cherry before, so this was a bit surprising.

If I only ordered an ESC pack and a CMYK pack and don't really care about my 1x Ctrl keys Ivan, could I have my order shipped earlier that way? Just asking! (Special treatment might be a bad idea when sorting and shipping I guess.)

If someone inside the EU buys it they'll have to pay the VAT at 19%, but if someone in the US buys it they don't have to, if I've understood it correctly.
