With a hammer and chisel. Then when you're done, you deposit the plastic shards and twisted bits of rust into the trash where they belong and go get yourself a real keyboard like a Razer Blackwidow.

Found some keyboards at the thrift today, and one seemed quite interesting. It's a NMB rt6855t+. Anyone with a model M or F knows how the assembly is held to the steel plate by paper thin plastic rivets, right? This fucking thing seems to be bolt modded by default as the assembly is held to the plate by quite a bit of screws. Being that this is secondhand, it's possible that its previous owner bolt modded it, but I doubt anyone would go through that kind of trouble to just leave it at the thrift. This is probably the only old keyboard I've found that seems to have these screws by default.

To add to the oddity, the keyboard isn't even mechanical. It uses very tactile rubber domes. Though it feels quite nice, this just seems like a lot of effort for a rubber dome keyboard.

Just got their 122 key layout board. It shipped in 3 days, and I'm super pleased with it. It really depends on what you're looking for though. The actuation force required is somewhat high. It may not be responsive enough for something like that. For typing though, it's perfect.

No, dollars are a meter of success in life. Vaginas are just generally exchangeable for dollars, assuming you aren't gay.

That being said, with that setup, I wouldn't count on seeing a dick that isn't your own, either. Beautiful work, though... like fucking fantastic craftsmanship, as I said.

Tbh vaginas are kind of useless in general. Sounds like they just cause chicks a load of problems, even if they exploit them to do shit like not have to learn anything and not have to get real careers. Like, if a program I wrote leaked a bunch of memory every month, that'd mean I wrote a shitty program. And like stallman said, reproduction isn't impressive because fucking plants can do it.

It's a bit silly to assume there's a 'best switch' that will be unanimously agreed as being the best. In fact, trying to force that argument is what makes these threads so uninteresting to scroll through and read when it's either a topre or buckling spring enthusiast trying to shove them down your throat.

the feeling in switches differs and is pretty subjective. Test a few ones aside from reds and see your preferences.

The biggest difference is that mechanical switches come in a huge variety of flavors. If you prefer a certain type of feel that rubber domes don't offer then go for it.

How are Matias Quiet Clicks compared to simplified black Alps? I think those black Alps are kind of scratchy but otherwise decent.

Pic related is what I'll buy, despite the stupid glossy finish.

Here in Eastern Europe, it's a month of work - both because of our minimum wage and because you have to pay VAT on them as well.

>> No.58127287

I haven't used many Alps boards. My main point of reference is an AEK with oranges. Compared to those, MQCs are much more tactile with far less ping (apparently ping is a common problem with Alps, and Matias has less of it across the board). I don't remember the AEK being scratchy, but MQCs are certainly much smoother than my Cherry boards.

The main flaw in Matias switches, I think, is the slightly smaller stem that wobbles and rattles around a lot and tightly grips any keycaps you put on it. Chattering is also a common problem but you may be able to fix that yourself.

Wait does it really take a month to earn $200 in disposable income on minimum wage in Europe. I thought yuropoor was just a meme.
In my state minimum wage is $400 a week or $280 after uncle sam takes his cut

Yeah primarily older membrane boards. Nothing amazing.

I heard that I should avoid unicomp

>> No.58127468

Unicomp are nearly identical to model Ms. The biggest difference is that they use less plastic in the case, that is it.
One thing too is that he got the keycaps wrong in his review. On the classic white and grey keycaps they are two pieces like the original. On the one he is reviewing they are one piece

>> No.58127698

Yeah I've heard about the chatter. I haven't run into that problem yet, even with the cheaper boards I've used. Apparently Alps switches can be easily taken apart by taking the top of the switch housing off with some toothpicks, though I don't know if it's the same story with Matias switches. Either way I'm not afraid to desolder. I think I'll go with it, thanks.

They're exactly the same. I remedied most of the chatter on my MQCs by opening them up and cleaning/adjusting the contacts.

Anything from Ducky

I suggest you pre-order the one you want before they are gone again

Well they sell out pretty fast. At least this time they gave us a chance to pre-order. I got lucky about 8 months ago when I bought the second to last one that was in stock.

I guess I'll pre-order it unless someone knows a decent alternative for the Ducky One @ $115
