Re: TACTILITY(and clicky)

The Embody is my daily driver and I can 100% vouch for it being worth every cent and more. I have damaged discs and this chair facilitates the right support and posture to make work possible.

Re: Razer Huntsman v2 analog keyboard review (Light Strike Libra Analog)

It’s the classic tale of boy meets keyboard, falls in love, builds a harem, shares his passion with the world, and in doing so sparks interest in others while simultaneously unintentionally becoming a catalyst in those new converts pricing themselves out of the hobby leading to shadowy figures, a bo...

Re: Razer Huntsman v2 analog keyboard review (Light Strike Libra Analog)

I would personally like to see more videos about these gamer boards and $30 Amazon boards because they will deflect attention from vintage boards and lead to some price drops when demand wanes. Also on my wishlist- a bunch of redux videos where you recant like Galileo and say all of those vintage bo...

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

Probably because unlike IBM switches, Alps are highly dependent on condition. That said, if someone put something like "condition 87.6523/100" that would be kind of funny. I agree with all of that but find myself skeptical about the average seller’s (mm or ebay) knowledge and experience. What makes...

Congrats comrade! That looks most excellent. This is by far my favorite beamspring design; for some reason it always makes me think of Spaceballs and the swoop on the back is simply gorgeous.

Re: Space Cadet Keyboard on eBay

There’s a post from 2018 where Orihalcon is selling F107 for ~500. Are they worth that? Sure. 2300? Not to me. That price puts it firmly into “that’s cool but not for me” territory like a G Wagon or a second house.

You're doing the lord's work! I'd love to get my hands on one of these keyboards - not for the switches - but because it's beautiful and have a cool layout. I'd love to use something like that. If I ever find one at a reasonable price I'll give it the no harvesting guarantee!
