Re: I guess we need a thread to show how dirty a keyboard could be.

Mhmh, how much C R I S P Y an F122 may be.... I'am wandering how come J, K and N, M, keycaps are so dirty. Maybe in '90s, videogames were played with such keys instead of today WASD? :lol:

Re: Stuff you just bought

Yes he did.... Am I so much guilty?

Thanks to God, people from South of Italy are so generous and kind. The seller disassembled the case in order to send me the missing cable....
Thanks so much Donato

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

Those Keycaps are outrageously cute. They reminded me of space cadet ones. So thick and spherical. The question is would it be possible with the help of a3d printer to adapt that mount on a different peg such as cherry or something else?
