    Is this Play-Doh or pieces of candy?

    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.

    Why there is no character/description printed on the keys ?

    @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.

    Love mechanical keyboards (especially custom built ones), but I really don’t understand the 60% hype. I can’t live without my numpad!

    @AlgoRythm change your system keyboard layout to Dvorak for more effective results

    @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

    @heyheni this dudes voice though! 😍
  • 1
    @bittersweet how tf do you break a model M tho, these things are nearly indestructible
  • 2
    @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.
  • 1
    @RantSomeWhere Use function keys! 60% keyboards are smaller and easier to carry around. And they look way better.
  • 1
    @RantSomeWhere yes chryosran22 voice is very soothing.
  • 1
    @rtfm I know, I own one myself but I have to clean it. It’s in rough shape, any other keyboard would be a hopeless case if it was in this condition.

    Generally, I don’t carry around a keyboard. I have a thinkpad and its keyboard is quite good by itself.
    The cool thing about numpads imo is that you can quickly comment things out in code, because slash and asterisk are right next to each other
  • 1
    @RantSomeWhere @rtfm Hot cheese fat and mushroom juice dripping from a pizza slice into the keys.

    @bittersweet oh snap. That is a death sentence for any keyboard.

    @RantSomeWhere I always use ctrl slash for commenting, thought that was pretty much standard in editors & IDEs.
  • 1
    @RantSomeWhere try frameless keyboards, they're easy to blow away pieces of cake between switches
  • 0
    @bittersweet ctrl + slash? Never used it. Thanks
  • 1
    @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.
  • 1
    @buitrung @bittersweet why are you like this. -_-
  • 0
    @rtfm uhm... yes, I use Vim heavily. Never knew about this, is that. I use Tim Pope’s Vim-commentary.

    But still, muh numpad!

    @rtfm What is that?*

    @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.

    @ganjaman why tf would you use qwertz, it’s fucking horrible.
  • -1
    @RantSomeWhere eat a dick nigga
  • 1
    @ganjaman nah I’ll pass.

    Seriously, “/“ is Shift+7, “[“ and “]” are on a third layer only accessible via right alt, “?” is shift+ß... someone smoked too much crack there.

    The only reason to use qwertz is people who need umlauts (äöü) and ß, but even then, these are much easier to type on an international QWERTY layout. For me, qwertz is literally the worst keyboard layout, it’s horribly inconvenient to use (even though I use umlauts as a German)

    Yet, I’m intrigued, what makes you use it?

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