Re: What's your list of beige whales?

So...you didn’t watch the video in the original post? I also originally thought that a “beige whale” was an 80s tech riff on Moby Dick, but the definition given in the video specifically contrasts it with a “white whale.” Space Cadet is a potential white whale; an F XT is a great example of a beige...

Yup. I just corrected myself. Thanks, Polecat. I mentioned in the WTB section that I have an Apple Extended Keyboard II with Mitsumi mechanical switches (not Mitsumi miniature mechanical -- that's a completely different switch), but I'm missing the stabilizer for the space bar, so I haven't been abl...

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

More on topic, someone should buy this: Dell w/black Alps + Siig Suntouch (full size) w/pine white Alps. Together, it's $100 and shipping is extra. Looks like both have pad printed keys that are wearing down and a couple caps are missing. However, that's not a big deal: I recently bought a new set o...

Re: What's your list of beige whales?

The beige whale that I actually now possess is a BTC 5100c compact keyboard with the dome/slider. I've wanted to try a BTC with dome/slider for a while and I found this one for $40ish, shipped. I'm happy to have bought it, but I'll never use it. I have other KBs that are much nicer. I'll eventually ...

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

I'd definitely say that I could be wrong. Again, to me, it's such a nice looking keyboard that I'd hope it has nice switches to go with it. I think that FLS are OK as a switch type, so I wouldn't have minded picking it up if the KB had those switches. IIRC, Alps Integrated Dome was one of Chyrosran'...

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

This Sony relisted couple times and price increased to 175 from 149, any idea about switches? https://www.ebay.com/itm/353523332547 My best bet would be SMK Discrete Dome or Alps Integrated Dome. Not a good price in such case. 6-pin DIN screams Fujitsu Leaf Springs 3rd Gen to me. It's a pretty KB.
