Re: Best mouse in case of tennis elbow

Someone I know has a long history of dealing with tennis elbows, (unrelated) shoulder issues etc. They were doing graphic work with Microsoft IntelliMouse Optical (in both right and left hands) since it was introduced and until I gave them a Kensington Expert trackball and a cheap Wacom Bamboo table...

[WTB] Matias Quiet Linear switches

I want to get some Matias Quiet Linear switches , at least ~65-70 for a 60% keyboard and a few of spares. Shipped to the Czech Republic. Price somewhere around €20-25 total tops. Note that Matias changed the lubrication method in 2018, and so I'm preferably looking for newer switches with the dry lu...

KeyMouse is working on a keyboardless mouse: ComfyMouse

I've always thought that KeyMouse was a weird idea, because a mouse shouldn't be too heavy and a keyboard shouldn't slide around (otoh, perhaps I wouldn't mind the trackball model). Now they're developing an "ergonomic" mouse, though, similar to Handshoe Mouse , and I'm actually stoked. c8_GCcH5uxA ...

The dictionary definition is correct and practical, because the vast majority of keyboards is virtual on touchscreens nowadays, and it's a worthwhile effort to study their usability compared to keyboards with ‘hardware’ buttons.

Fair enough. ~90 cm (after conversion to civilized units) is quite normal. I was confused by the keyboard placement, because then it's more suited for the zombie posture:

That's probably the same inconsistency problem as with MX Blue/Green before retooling. (In 2013 or so, Geekhack was full of complaints about it.)

Vintage whites shouldn't be affected, and retooled whites are supposedly great too.

While that is a good design, you are limited to 2 or 3 clicky switches whereas og cherry can be used on hundreds to thousands of boards of any mx mount you want.

They sound and feel more or less the same as most clicky simplified Alps clones. More tactile than late Alps SKCM Black, but that's probably the only good thing I can tell about them.
