Re: Are these dye subbed keycaps?

My opinion is they are lasered. It would be impressive if they were dye-subbed because of the sharpness and fineness of the legends.

Re: New ThinkPad Trackpoint Keyboard II

I don't think I have ever in my life used the pause or scroll lock keys. What do you guys use them for that's so critical? Rare use case, but I use Pause to enter a command layer on my desktop configuration (i3) and Scroll Lock as a compose key. I actually have a macro set in QMK to output Scroll L...

Re: Any Open Source Controllers out there?

That's awesome! Thanks for sharing this! By the way, is there a way to configure Deskthority to show me a notification when I open it, if someone has commented on a post I did or I have started? I thought I've set it up but it didn't notify me about your comment Click the little wrench icon -> subs...

Re: Your typing skills are totally erased: what would you learn?

I would learn Carpalx (again). The appeal of alternative layouts for me is not ultimate speed or even ergonomics, but ease of learning and intuitiveness. I never learned QWERTY because I realized the keys were not in optimal positions. When I looked into Carpalx, I could easily memorize the position...

About the Isopropyl alcohol will this not discolour/ warp the ALPS switch housings?
Not to the best of my knowledge. I've cleaned all parts of ALPS SKCM with 91% IPA with no issues before.

Re: Linear switch for autoimmune arthritis: light or heavy?

I think it's possible that a traditional linear spring might work better for me, just because it has the most gradual transition from light to heavy. That would be a "slow" curved spring. The slow springs are designed specifically to have the most gradual (slow!) increase from light to heavy, to ma...

Re: Linear switch for autoimmune arthritis: light or heavy?

I don't know that I feel much need for a split board? No reason to change if you are comfortable :) If you want avoid bottom out on linears, you might want to look into progressive or slow curve springs. They are both designed for typing without bottoming out, or at least to reduce harshness of bot...

Re: Linear switch for autoimmune arthritis: light or heavy?

If you were going with light full-travel linears I would recommend Cherry Silent (damped) Reds over the normal ones. The silent dampeners on the stem make for a much more cushioned bottom out, but probably not as cushioned as the Topre domes you've been using. How do you feel about a split board? I ...
