Re: Unpopular opinions thread

Eating oreos without milk should be a criminal offence anyway. Tastiness increases by +12000%! Anyway, *Family Guy, Friends, How I Met your Mother, and Big Bang Theory all suck ass and aren't funny in the slightest. *Coffee is horrible and tastes like concentrated mud. *The only thing that makes te...

Why not start a thread of unpopular opinions? I begin:
• Oreo cookies' filling taste dreadful.
• Dogs aren't that great.
• I don't like Johnny Depp.
I actually agree with all these.

-Oreos make me sick.
-Dogs are fun but too high maintenance.
-Johnny Depp seems like an asshat.

Re: IBM 4704 F62 Kishsaver Keyboard Model F- and - IBM 4704 F50

… The one keyboard I do miss is the F122 that I had revived and restored. That thing was a joy to use and had a key for everything without having to bury keycodes in layers. I sold it because it was simply too big and unwieldy but now I think that I can live with it. Luckily, those are still floati...

Re: IBM 4704 F62 Kishsaver Keyboard Model F- and - IBM 4704 F50

but now I think that I can live with it. There is nothing like the IBM Model F 122-key terminal, but Cindy has a very nice NMB black clicky Space Invaders 122-key (didn't you buy one of those from me a few years ago?) that could be spectacular and also much lighter in weight. Native PS/2 also, as I...

Re: So what's new?

What happened in the three months you were away? People are still using keyboards built 30 years ago :-þ I haven't been paying attention for longer than that. But yea, I'm still using 30 year old keyboards. But I have settled in a bit with Topre. The lower force is friendlier on my fingers than IBMs.

There was an MX Alps slider called the...
