Re: suggestions for /dev/tty2 ?

Hi matt3o, While I'm enjoying my DSA Granite and waiting for the MT3 Susuwatari set, after many stunning posts about the gray color /dev/tty set, I think I am getting ready to finally get the MT3 /dev/tty2. I think the DT veterans are helping a lot to make projects here go as good looking as they ca...

Re: [EU-PL] Videowriters keyboards (ALPS black/cream damped), IBM model M Blue Badge 93 DE

The Videowriter indeed has a very usable 60% layout - if the keys are remappable and there are layers to be assigned to for the keys.

Re: What are Topre Switches Like?

Hi Reece, I suggest the best way to know how Topre switches feel like is to test it out yourself in a nearby keyboard meetup when it happens. I'm typing on a Topre board (HHKB Pro2), while boards with MX clears and MX blacks, as well as MX-clones such as "Zealios" are sitting somewhere in m drawers....

Re: Infinikey keycaps

"Infinikey" seems to be a legitimate contender to the EnjoyPBT

I received my set of Katakana and unfortunate they're probably a "second" with some legend misalignment issues that slipped out of the QC and I had to return them. For majority of their batch, I believe they are of decent quality.

Anybody using a knee-chair?

Re: What is the best chair to stay 12 hours a day typing on the keyboard?

I suggest using a sit-stand working desk, and stand for at least 25% of the time if you have to stay "seated" for so long. A standing stool is also better for your spine. Most important thing is to keep a good neck and shoulder posture - if the muscles are weak to stay in a good post, either spend t...

Re: EnjoyPBT Keycaps?

This OG Cherry ISO set used the original moulding now GMK has acquired to make. They are supposedly of better quality or at least equal quality than GMK.
I would also say they should out perform ePBT.

Hello people, I'm looking for a nice set of ISO keycaps to go on my Steelseries Apex Pro.

Re: Would it be possible for someone to recreate the SKCM blue alps switch?

Ok, I got replies from several manufacturers who say they will be able to do it! Durock seems to be the most likely candidate, but of course the moulds will be expensive to make.
