    Way too much color for me lol

    I prefer a solid black with blue LED lighting

    @Stuxnet
    something like this?
    the underglow actually helps to know which layer you're in on <60% keyboards.

    @jespersh it's PBT plastic.

    @rtfm Well ya see I fucked myself back when I was like 10 and learning to type.

    I cheated my way through the class and I can barely type properly. I keep glancing down to make sure I'm on the correct row as it is.

    And when I try to properly learn, I get salty as fuck when I make mistakes bc I am a bit of a perfectionist with some things.

    @Marethyun because they serve no other purpose than being hideous.

    @Stuxnet it only takes about a week and a little perseverance to get used to it. then you get faster and more accurate. I couldn't do past 60 wpm when I was hunting and pecking and now I do 100+ wpm. plus it's a lot more easier on the hands/wrists/arms.

    @karma keep an eye on Massdrop a discount community with special offerings in exquisite mechanical keyboards. You have to sign up which sucks but it's worth it! https://massdrop.com/mechanical-key...

    also i can recommend the taekeyboard and chryosran22 chanel on youtube for some geeky mechanical keyboard entertainment.

    @rtfm i keep switching between qwerty and qwertz, 101 and 60, so i really need the print on the keycaps lol
  • 1
    I had a CM quickfire, then a WASD. With both, the keycaps looked worn down and ugly after a few months, so I gave them away to coworkers.

    Ideal keyboard: No leds, doubleshot PBT keys.

    So I ended up buying 4x Ducky One 2 Horizon, one for every room I have a PC in.

    I love them.

    @bittersweet noooo! you dreamcrusher!
    i imagined that you're an artisan programmer with a secret stash of new old stock of IBM Model M's from the 80ties 😄

    Is this keyboard for blind people?

    @Orinj congratulations you lucky bastard! 😎

    @heyheni Haha my MAIN keyboard in the living room is a custom built $860 Ergodox with MX clears and DSA PBTs, but my bedroom, kitchen, attic and the dungeon under my house have Duckys.

    I just meant, if you're looking for the perfect off the shelf introduction mech, Ducky One 2 is amazing for ~$100.

    @heyheni I broke a model M once by using it as a pizza plate, and I've molested a real C64 to become an RPi housing with C64 emu, so I'm not that great at conserving history I guess.

    Well, when you‘re poor, you have to use a naturally colored keyboard 😅 (a photo I took in the morning)

    Form < Function

    get a model m

    Nice kb! But I'm in love with classic look

    @ElizadeathRaven Oh no. When I got my first mechanical keyboard I swore I would never ever type on a rubber-dome again.

    You can get a good mechanical keyboard with cherry-mx equivalent for ~$50.

    I'd recommend the brown switches.

    @RantSomeWhere Model Ms are like the Nokia 3310s of keyboards.

    @RantSomeWhere Use function keys! 60% keyboards are smaller and easier to carry around. And they look way better.

    @RantSomeWhere yes chryosran22 voice is very soothing.
  • 0
    @RantSomeWhere @rtfm Hot cheese fat and mushroom juice dripping from a pizza slice into the keys.

    @RantSomeWhere I always use ctrl slash for commenting, thought that was pretty much standard in editors & IDEs.
  • 0
    @RantSomeWhere try frameless keyboards, they're easy to blow away pieces of cake between switches
  • 0
    @RantSomeWhere Or, if you used a better editor: visual mode -> select text block -> <leader>cs. Without ever needing to leave the home row.

    @buitrung why would anyone ever bring food anywhere near the keyboard?!
  • 0
    @rtfm tbh I do usually. You need much energy while working don't you? Don't worry to eat near your gears, you're gonna clean stuffs on the table some day anyway
  • 4
    @rtfm Sometimes hunger wins from common sense. And sometimes you haven't done the dishes, and you're drunk, and you think a keyboard can substitute for a pizza plate.

    @buitrung @bittersweet why are you like this. -_-

    @rtfm I'm a keyboard gangster and have a decadent amount, they're replaceable, in the dozens they count. Fuck Lamborghinis, I visit the club with my Filcos, bitch, I don't use o-rings when I fuck them until they glitch. I paid for these hoes with cash I don't need a loan, so when I push their buttons I want you to hear them moan.

    Ugh, sorry about that.

    The reality is that I'm a good little romantic nerd, I only really care about my Ergodox not just because of the cost, but also because I spent a lot of time milling steel and walnut wood. So beyond my true love, the rest is expendable.

    @bittersweet I've been meaning to build an ortholinear but been too busy. I can only imagine the pleasure of the mx-browns clacking against hand polished wood. Soon.

    @rtfm I feel you. I only recently got my first (and I regret not getting it earlier), but I'm already considering the next.
