Re: Deskthority Secret Santa 2019

Alright guys there's still time to sign up! We've got another 2 weeks before the deadline!

Don't feel threatened by gifts given in the past! There's no minimum budget, some years you get a full keyboard other years you get random odds and ends you end up using more (tbh) .

Re: Please do not reply to spam

For a while we had it set to require post approvals from new accounts and that helped keep stuff off the forum but didn't help us on the back end.

Re: M0110 Clear Case

It's a modification for sure. There's been some talk on Mac forums about it and general consensus is it's an SLA printed case on the keyboard. They've also had a clear mouse and a clear joystick and you might notice none of them mention prototype or any real information. I bet they're betting on som...

Re: Unpopular opinions thread

Plate spring... I take it you can't touch type at any reasonable speed since plate springs just turn to a mush at any kind of respectable speed. I don't know why anyone would willingly use those mushy switches. Even worse, if you store the keyboard wrong and something runs across the top, the switc...

I've got a *lot* of old computers with PS/2 so it's easier to just throw an adapter on the end when I need it. So update: It works! The keyboard side of things works absolutely fine.

Topre ANSI Enter Key Cap (Just the one)

I'm currently on the search for a Topre compatible enter key. Unfortunately me being me I managed to snap the stem on my Type Heaven's enter key making the board a little challenging to use. I don't particularly care what colour, could be black, could be puke green, just needs to fit.
