Re: HHKB refresh in 2019?

Being a region in someone else’s country is horseshit. I had no idea about any of that, but it doesn't sound very sovereign-like. OK, so I just received my HYBRID Type-S. A few initial observations: 1) No more creaking. This case is solid compared to the Pro 2! 2) The spacebar is MUCH quieter than ...

Re: HHKB refresh in 2019?

Some of the keys make a wooshing / whistling sound on the down stroke because the rubber o rings have too tight tolerances. Maybe there’s another reason for it, that’s my guess, but they do make a low pitched whistling noise.

Re: HHKB refresh in 2019?

Interesting. I've had all of the variations of HHKB (all keycaps, all boards, and naturally I also tried all of the combinations you get from this) and I honestly prefer the blank non-type S HHKBs. So I'm interested in the classic, blank variant. But I'll wait it out for a few reviews.

If you find anything out, please do let me know. I'm quite interested in the "classic" model.

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?
