Re: [WTB] One switch Cherry MX Blue or Kailh Green

Thanks a lot for the answer, but I'd prefer someone from the EU because shipping one switch from the US to Germany seems a bit excessive :D Plus, it can wait.

[WTB] One switch Cherry MX Blue or Kailh Green

Hi all, I found a used Razer Blackwidow 2014 in the trash and wanted to restore it but exactly one switch is broken. I desoldered it and found out that one leg of the switch just broke off. So I'm looking for a replacement here, the board comes with Kailh Greens but MX Blues should work as well. Tha...

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

Given the recent prices, it's becoming more and more interesting to manufacture fake vintage keyboards using modern technology... Build them, bury them in the backyard, wait a few months - profit!

Re: New ThinkPad Trackpoint Keyboard II

I think scroll lock and pause still work on FreeBSD (possibly Linux as well) for example if you work on the console! The machine is booting up and if there's a kernel panic or anything like that, you have the possibility to look up any error messages. Otherwise impossible, unless you have some other...

Re: Price Check: How much is my _____ worth?

I'm thinking about selling my Model M SSK... In very good condition, did the screw mod as well. For how much do these go nowadays?

it's about €1200-1400 per year for the server (and backups).
Sent some money as well! What kind of hellish machine is being used here? Does deskthority really generate that much traffic? :D

A root server with 4 cpu cores, 16GB RAM and some storage should cost you less than 15 euros per month.

Re: has the trackball landscape changed in any way lately?

Yep, I hated that scroll wheel, too. I never really found any trackball useful for me, either my thumb or my wrist hurts after a few minutes of use.

But I don't have any problems using normal mice, so I can live with that. But I'm always eager to find new input methods ;)

Re: has the trackball landscape changed in any way lately?

Oh, I see, that's a possibilty!

@matt3o: There used to be a magnet inside the housing which created more friction for the scroll wheel. If your scrolling experience is pretty much fluid, then your unit propably does not have one.

Re: has the trackball landscape changed in any way lately?

Regarding the Kensinton Expert: Just removing the magnet inside the housing will make the scroll wheel feel way better!

You can pop it back in later if you don't like the feel.
