Not really related to keyboards, but I've been working on designing a new case for my rig.
Currently making a phone-charging-stand/figurine-stand/cable-organizer/pen-holder type of thing for the standing desk.

3D printer should be here tomorrow. I should order some stuff from alie and see about milling keyboard PCBs. Shit's going to get fun from here on.

Hence, I haven't bothered taking any new pictures, there's not much to show yet, except for some CAD files.

>Optical mice are generally mechanical
no optical mice aren't mechanical. That being said why would anon still use mechanical mouse. I'll just quote wikipedia

Unlike mechanical mice, whose tracking mechanisms can become clogged with lint, optical mice have no moving parts (besides buttons and scroll wheels); therefore, they do not require maintenance other than removing debris that might collect under the light emitter. However, they generally cannot track on glossy and transparent surfaces, including some mouse-pads, causing the cursor to drift unpredictably during operation. Mice with less image-processing power also have problems tracking fast movement, whereas some high-quality mice can track faster than 2 m/s.

Some models of laser mouse can track on glossy and transparent surfaces, and have a much higher sensitivity.

As of 2006 mechanical mice had lower average power requirements than their optical counterparts; the power used by mice is relatively small, and only an important consideration when the power is derived from batteries, with their limited capacity.

Optical models outperform mechanical mice on uneven, slick, soft, sticky, or loose surfaces, and generally in mobile situations lacking mouse pads. Because optical mice render movement based on an image which the LED (or infrared diode) illuminates, use with multicolored mouse pads may result in unreliable performance; however, laser mice do not suffer these problems and will track on such surfaces.

That is wrong. Back then keyboard had no standard layouts so coming up with different colors helped you identify where everything was in relationship to each other. That is why all the old vintage keyboards had funky colors for their keycaps. This trend continues today because companies have set up a reputation for using certain colors on their keycaps, it has become more of a brand image. Just look at Dolch Pac for Christs sake. They've been around since the 80s and they still use the same two tone color scheme.

What are you talking about? I never said that full sized keyboards are hipster. No seriously where did you get that from? Besides I want good quality keycaps. My rubber dome keyboard from 1991 has PBT keycaps and they look brand new, but it became mushy to type on. I got another rubber dome, but the ABS keycaps developed this nasty shine and texture to them after a year. I can't keep buying new keycaps every year, my PBT ones outlasted the rubber domes. So I just went and bought a mechanical keyboard and some PBT keycaps with the hope of it lasting me a long time, but the PBT keycaps began to fade away and develop a nasty shine to them after a couple of years.

I can't stand programming with laptop keyboards so I thought about carrying a small keyboard with me. Can anyone recommend me the most portable blue switch keyboard you can think of?

might be asking for christmas so 40-70 would be preferred
>Location (continent at least)
US
>Preferred switch type
blue
>Form factor
tenkeyless or smaller, portability is important
>Backlight
no
>Previous/current keyboards
rosewill full brown switches

Can heavier keys mess up your wrists? Stallman wrote in his blog that happened to him...


I really like the feeling of MX Clears, too...

Unless you have pussy-ass fingers, no.

Bad posture will fuck your wrists up though.

What does this general think of the CM Novatouch?
Does it have the same meme magic as regular Topres?

so you want something like this?
If it is then its sold out, but the only other thing I can find is the RS96 on massdrop, but that's about 20 bucks over your budget.

Something like that yeah. There's discontinued quickfire TKs on Amazon but I don't trust that shit
