Haven't been around in awhile. Got tired of the other forum(s) I was visiting (non-keyboard forum, fyi). What's new around here and in the keyboard world?

Also see my sales thread, I got some stuff I want to off load.

I guess one thing that's new is off topic is pretty much dead these days.

There's basically nothing new. A couple of keycap sets, a couple of new gayming keyboards and that's about it.

There was the Silo switches, Hall Effect and Beamspring MX-mount switch. BOX switches came and went. People got crazy about a switch combo named "Holy Pandas", it got extremely expensive but now there are multiple versions of them. TGR is becoming the new OTD. There was an MX Alps slider called the Nexus slider, but it had a stem which would crack caps (BOX switches cracked caps -- the sliders were made using the same, too big measurements. The stem pretty much killed off BOX switches). That's what I got so far, I'm not sure when you left, so I don't know what you know.

What happened in the three months you were away?
People are still using keyboards built 30 years ago :-þ

So BOX switches are already on the outs? I have those on one of my keyboards. Darn.

The Silo switches seem interesting. Although if they aren't on a keyboard that weighs 10 lbs, it isn't the same.

I haven't been paying attention for longer than that. But yea, I'm still using 30 year old keyboards. But I have settled in a bit with Topre. The lower force is friendlier on my fingers than IBMs.
