I dunno, as an experiment, to increase their heft, see if that makes them feel better. Anons above are talking about spending $75+ on keycaps just because they were made with a few extra grams of plastic, I should be able to achieve the same 'hefty' effect with less than a dollar of clay

>> No.58818218

You might increase the weight of a cap by a gram, give or take, if you stuff it with clay. The side effects include getting that shit everywhere, including possibly the inside of the switch. If you want to be a retard, go right ahead.

Well now which is it? /mkg/ argues in favor of having multiple keyboards but against having multiple guns. Do you want lots of things or fewer things? Be consistent please or you lose credibility! Also how can you justify the hypocrisy of making this off-topic post without posting your keyboard?

Because sometimes you feel like a nut. Of those three, the P99 would be my pick. PPQ is goat and PPX is who-cares tier but P99 is goatest.

Hot water. Obviously, unplug it and disassemble first. Unless you had a tall glass of adhesive you accidentally knocked over onto your keyboard, water will dissolve anything you'd be drinking.

some ducky shine with cherry browns, some kul tkl with cherry greens, extensively used some keyboards in a computer lab with cherry blues.

Basically it seems like the only option for ergonomic with topre is the utron, but apparently it's sold out (except for one on ebay with a huge markup, even after all the japan proxy fees). Are there other options I'm missing? Tbh I'm not super fond of the fact that it's in JIS format and that it doesn't have an equivalent of the windows key, but I'm assuming I can just get around that with xmodmap, and like even if I can't, I really don't mind a bit of a learning curve. I don't want an ergodox because I've had thumb issues in the past and I don't want to bring those back, and also I'm sick of cherry switches (I can't imagine gaterons are that different).
