Re: The Deskthority Cooking Thread

Thank you for inspiration. Today I got the dough right for the first time. Only 15 g of fresh yeast for 500 g flour, 250 ml water, 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt, some sugar. Resting for 12 hrs. But my oven is too small and heat comes mostly from above. Still sufficient space for improvement.. I thin...

Old thread, but I did not know where to put it. Souvenirs from Japan. My colleague told me it's a piece of shit, but my son insisted on dragon egg. Akita inu? Well, piss on everything. The other souvenir is in the "The Deskthority Cooking Thread" .

cherry mx 65g springs

I want to spring-mod my G80-3000 HAU just a bit lighter as it is completely useless for me at the moment. (Ok for inducing carpal tunnel syndrome and regressing fine motor skills)

I think the 65g will be my way to go.

Any hints? Not willing to pay $20.- shipping costs for a $10.- lot..

Thanks

Re: SKCM ALPS - Switchplate repair

The contacts corrode and loose conductivity completely

do it two or three times with low force. test before re-assembling.
If I had this blues, I would take my time. I do not have a very good feel about using contact cleaner,

good luck cheers

I got a Cherry G80-3000HFD from the chunk box, serial 043893 - is it 1993? It is my first MX-blue board. As I have some clones, razer green and outemu blue, this is really different from what I expected. The keyfeel and sound is completely different and rather reminds me on the ALPS SKCM orange or w...

Re: romer g, cherr mx or razer switches?

I have got a Razer Tournament 2014 and an Ultimate 2014. Their switches (yes - both green) feel totally different. On the Ultimate (Kailh?) they are very smooth and need a lot more actuation force. Some of them remind me on my vintage MX blacks somehow, just with a click. Very inconsistent all over ...

Model M appreciation

Mother of all recent keyboards, you are just perfect as you are. All the others will be judged by your standards, and modifying you will be seen as sacrilege. Is this the reason for (subjectively felt) thin reception on DT? Or is it, because if you once start, you will look for even fancier stuff (l...
