Re: IBM Model F, M, and HHKB

After a lot of time browsing for caps I realized I hate legends, which kind of surprised me because I generally like digital fonts and one of my hobbies is calligraphy. Interestingly enough, my dislike of legends carried over also to another interest of mine, mechanical watches. Over night I realize...

Mini-legends hiding in the corners of the keys, looking at me all shifty-eyed. Yes I'm tempted. But I need to get used to my Race's layout first so that anything else feels alien to me and I can complain about it being weird.
Why would you look at the legends anyway?

Re: IBM Model F, M, and HHKB

This site makes me feel like I’m the only one that loves model M and F (F over M), but only in short bursts. I can not imagine using these boards full time.

HHKB is a modern, usable, every day non stop board. To me at least.

What do these bots want? Are they making accounts so they will be old with time and thus more “reliable” to the community after some time or what?

I keep seeing threads with just 1 post by OP and they’re gone. I once read old accounts can sell pretty well on sites like reddit.

Re: Does Your Ideal Mouse Exist?

Yeah, the third mouse button was not great there. But it's also not great on G502 and neither on the MX master and I have a feeling it has something to do with the hyper scroll wheel.

Rest of the mouse was, for me, fantastic.

Re: Does Your Ideal Mouse Exist?

Anyone else misses the G9x? I'm loving the "new" Pro from Logitech purely aesthetically, but I can't live without the hyperscroll wheel. Dang it.

I've been using the G502 for several years now and while the mouse is outstanding for me, it's so unbelievably ugly and tacky. But it's so useful.
