I might very well take you up on that, although which ones I mentioned are on there? Is it just the Pale Blues or is that dark blueish one a Navy? I'm guessing it's a Royal or something instead.
I couldn't tell yah! I'll dig out the invoice to identify them.

You can borrow my Kailh and Gateron testers if you like. That'd get you part way there.

I know the Omnikey isn't the sexiest one but personally I love it! The Focus is by far my sexiest one though! ;)
The dust cover doubles the sex appeal too.

My tip for macros is Soarer's Controller
Having read through that thread, and the documentation that accompanies the controller, it seems a little over my head. However, I said that about mapping an M122 so it isn't likely to be too far outside my grasp. Thanks for the tip!

Re: Macro Pad Recommendations?

Those Duckboards do look cool.

I've been looking into programming macros with QMK this afternoon and it seems like a right ball ache. Running a Linux distro and all that... Does no one make macro pads with the ease of programming like that of Gateway or Focus any more?

Macro Pad Recommendations?

As things in the world begin to return to normal, I'll be heading into my place of work most days in the near future. Working from home, I've loved using an Anykey for daily use. While the key feel is a little stiff for the amount of typing I do, the hardware macro functionality has been incredibly ...

Re: Has anyone tried the Cox CNK 103 topre clone?

I haven't had the pleasure of this keyboard but I have used boards with the 35 g and 45 g Niz EC switches. I found Niz switches to be quiet, just as quiet as a dampened Topre. However, they don't feel like Topre. I wrote a piece here recently comparing Niz to Topre. My conclusion was basically, if y...

Re: Nopre Electro-Capacitive Switches: A Good Topre Alternative? (Niz Plum/Abko)

Thanks for the feedback guys!

It is curious to me how we all experience key feel. It is obviously subjective but I find it useful to identify people who enjoy certain switches in the same way that I do. It is also equally dangerous as I can then ask them shopping inspiration :lol:

Having recently tried Topre for the first time, the typing experience quickly grew on me. I selected an all black HHKB Pro 2 with stock 45 g switches. The layout tested me a little, exacerbated by virtually invisible legends, and it reinforced a prior conclusion of mine; I need arrow keys - 65 % at ...
