Re: Stuff you just bought

I bought two of these thingies the other day. They're off-camera flash extension cables. They were very inexpensive and surprisingly good quality. So I promptly ripped the head off of one of them! Well really more like cut the tail off but the other way sounds more dramatic. https://i.imgur.com/x6Mz...

Re: Quarantine photo thread

Today did some super macro shots of a deconstructed Alps dampened cream switch. I enjoy playing with this lens but have trouble finding things small enough to photograph with it. It's starting magnification is 2.5x and goes up to 5x so stuff have to be really tiny to fit the frame. All these photos ...

Thanks Robb, I'd like to do one where I'm tossing something at the camera (keycaps, switches, etc.) but haven't nailed it quite yet. In the meantime, here's yet another timelapse.

Re: Quarantine photo thread

And here's today's submission. I was mostly just playing around with time remapping and trying different intervals.

Few random Micro Switch keycaps

Playing around with a few things, putting off housework. The usual. I was using a cheapish ring light that I just got. I think it's a good enhancer but maybe not enough on its own. Also, how great are these colors. Particularly the white/cream one. https://i.imgur.com/N9sK4ol.jpg https://i.imgur.com...

Weird / interesting vintage computer advertisements

Discussion in the "Interesting Finds" thread got me looking through old brochures and magazine clippings on bitsavers. Some of these ads were quite eccentric, even for the time. Others seem very weird when you look back at them through 2020 eyes. I know IBM stuff holds it's value well. But $18k??? S...

Re: The World is going Pro

Cool, I love unique stuff like this. It's obscure but it has the added bonus of the most popular keycap mount style. IMO the GMK modifiers you used look quite nice with the dye subs. I'd probably go for a different space bar since that color kind of comes out of the blue at you but that's my taste. ...
