There's enough room inside the large stem that one could likely fit a ton of adapters into them without any trouble.

Re: Unpopular opinions thread

A good LED capslock cap will be triple shot though, so even though I like latching best, you can't have a triple shot cap like that and not grace it with the intended LED.

Re: Unpopular opinions thread

The 3rd best way to do lock lights is with a toggle switch, the 2nd best is with an integrated LED, the best way is with both.
Caps lock is the only useful toggle.

Re: Cleaning up zrrion's Wyse PCE

This is looking fantastic so far! IDK what could have happened to the board to make MX switches feel like that so hopefully they feel okay after being cleaned.

Re: Get the PITCHFORK key ready! Microsoft intends to molest the keyboard layouts again.

There's already dedicated wake/sleep/power keys and media keys, my guess is that an office key won't be implemented at all but if it is it'll be on an f key like the media keys are on some laptops.

Re: So what's the 'classic' way to mount MX Browns?

There isn't an objective standard for what is "good" tbh. Your best bet, if you want to know what is good for you, is to try one out yourself. I personally like plate mounted clicky switches, but I use a 11800 at work and it is okay. I'm finding browns too light for how I type though. No idea about ...

Re: So what's the 'classic' way to mount MX Browns?

Considering cherry made and still makes them in plate and PCB mount versions, I'd say either way is the right way. I have a 11800 and it's a pretty good board for what it is. I like more tactility than browns provide personally, but they are pretty good. I have never tried browns plate mounted.

Re: Lament for the pingmaster.

A lot of these are good points TBH. I would recommend trying SKCC creams if you think greens are too light. I have a few cream boards and I make way fewer mistakes on them.

I would also recommend moving f-key related hotkeys to their own keys. Macros are super useful for stuff like that.

That is indeed SKCC. It could very well have green, but all the ALPSaver's I've seen have used cream.
It looks like it is in fantastic shape too!

A pic of the switch would be very helpful if you can get it. The layout and those feet remind me of a podworld 292, but the bottom plate and the case design do not match at all.
