Re: Dear Model F owners, can we talk? (Long rant)

I don't know about r/watches in particular, but I've gotten attitudes like that from (mechanical) watch enthusiasts all the time. The overall watch community is filled with arrogance and elitism. Yes your watch(es) may cost ten times as much as mine, yet somehow manage to be less practical, less re...

People say my F122 is too big for me, but it's the last thing they get to say. :D
Ha! I wouldn’t be able to say the same about my watch because that’d prove their point!

Re: Dear Model F owners, can we talk? (Long rant)

Thinking back, I can now remember exactly who the OP is talking about. They do exist. I’m already annoyed again just remembering that they exist. They particularly exist in Discord servers of subreddits like r/buildapc, r/headphones, and r/watches (although, I’ll have to give credit to r/watches, th...

Re: Dear Model F owners, can we talk? (Long rant)

I just have a hard time taking anything OP has said so far seriously because no one is actually saying that the Model M is a bad keyboard. There's no hate. There's no one saying that a Model M is "built like a Cherry", and if there is they're certainly in an extreme minority. Many people just seem ...

Re: What's your list of beige whales?

I don't know that I actually crave any super rare or expensive keyboards. In a sense, the Model M, Model F77, the Cherry G80s and few Alps boards that I have are all I could ask for. At this point, I mostly just like finding and trying new keyboards, not because they are the best , but because they...

Re: What's your list of beige whales?

There was a point in my life when I used a Planck keyboard and Arch Linux, but now I can’t be arsed and just want something that works and is nice. So now I’m using a 5251 on a Mac. I could relate to this until I realised you were "settling" for a 5251 beam spring keyboard. I'm a mere mortal Model ...

Re: What input devices to get for RSI?

I agree with what Bjerrk said. What’s worked best for me is making a good habit to make sure I’m not touching any input devices except when I actually really have to. So, when I’m not actively typing or moving the cursor, my hands are resting in a neutral position, not touching either input device. ...

Re: Any way to disable sleep / power saver mode on hhkb hybrid?

Assuming PFU keeps the DIP switch configuration consistent between its various models, SW6 can be considered to be the setting for a “keepalive” function. In the default OFF position, the keyboard will power off after 30 minutes of inactivity unless the keyboard is plugged in, in which case, the key...

The LED is off during normal use. It only turns on momentarily when you turn it on/off or are configuring it...
