Re: good mouse for CAD work?

Haha, I use a Razer myself, the Razer Ouroboros. It was the only mouse I could find that was ambidextrous (I like to switch hands) and had serious functionality. Hate its stupid juvenile looks though, ffs it looks like a baby sci-fi toy. And its battery consumption, and the software. Yeah I'm not on...

Worst part, everything is completely overbranded and not even pretty...
I agree. The lid is the worst offender with overbranding. Also compare the old vs new travel bag... gone is the minimalist approach.

Re: December Shocker: Mu Votes Cherry!

It’s a trading organisation, on a slow and winding path to federalism. But the U.K. is a different beast. I think you are underestimating the current power and the speed of the path, but in any case, now you're arguing short term. In the long term, if the UK is a beast now, the EU will become that ...

Re: December Shocker: Mu Votes Cherry!

I don't blame you because you voted yes, but democratically the Scottish voted against independence, and then you can't complain when the vote of the rest of the Empire is different on occasions on what your little province by choice prefers. Ah the Scottish. I still can't believe Mel Gibson died fo...

Of course you did. The Scottish voted for this in 2014 when they opted to bow to their English masters, because money (pensions and such). Now bow. :twisted:

It seems even the classic no bluetooth models now have the slightly ugly case design with the rounder borders and different slope.

Re: Deskthority Awards 2019 ~ Phase 1: The nominations

A "silver" or "golden" trophkey is perfect as an award in the keyboard community. Not a t-shirt. And you go through lengths to explain the term wing nut to us like we're idiots, yet fail to recognize that's exactly the design - it's a tongue-in-cheek play on that we are keyboard wingnuts, keyboard o...

I hate all big budget movies nowadays. Always the same shit story in different clothes, dumbed down for a global market. The last big budget movie master piece was probably Starship Troopers, and that was only possible because it was such a nasty hidden troll in a sci-fi flick.

I like Budweiser. In general I like plain beers over specialty beers. Beer is a very simple product with just a few ingredients. Specialty beers just fuck around ratios so you get a weird, excuse me, "special" taste. I'm amused by the "piss" snobbery. Don't even get me going about alcoholic grape ju...
