MK1 was my first car in 1993! Great little car, fantastic memories, what color is yours?

One time while I was starting to work on changing the head gasket, I laid a wrench across the battery tie down and positive terminal, and every wire in the main wire harness simultaneously burst into flame throughout the engine bay. After much wailing and frantic pacing I attempted to remove the wrench only to find that it red hot, having welded itself to the battery tie down. It took the leverage of a broomstick to snap the wrench free, and 15 minutes with a fire extinguisher chasing a series of spontaneously re-igniting fires before it was over. The majority of the wire harness survived, and I now have a deep fear of high amperage electricity.

Still love that car.

In terms of keyboards / keycaps at least, they're like a middle man / group-buy host.

When you have 1000+ orders for your custom keyset design, it can be too large a task for the designer(s) to handle all those orders and shipping etc. So Massdrop handles it for them, liaising with the manufacturers, working out a pricing structure, advertising and listing the product, taking orders and money, receiving the products, sorting, packing and distributing.

Generally, it's a good business model especially for large orders. Errors do occur but for the most part they're okay.

I've tried a few different keyboards. The now discontinued Logitech TK820 actually worked really well for me, because it was pretty close to having a normal layout and had the large trackpad built in.

I've never owned a Thinkpad, and the super-nonstandard layout will definitely cause some problems for me for a few days, but the trackpoint is appealing.

I have been slowly abandoning pointing devices as the years have gone on though. I use Vimium browser plugins on all my machines, git-bash is functional enough on my Windows-based work laptop that I do as much as I can inside of it (even has vim), I've memorized keybinds for the applications I spend the most time in, I know the keybinds for quickly moving windows around the screen on Windows, my personal machines have BunsenLabs installed... I'll probably be ok just leaving a mouse on my desk for those occasions where I need it.

Man you really know nothing about buying used shit

Just go on ebay and look for a cherry g80 keyboard. Usually you can find them with browns or blacks with high quality doubleshot keycaps. The problem with ebay is that you have to pay for shipping compared to walking into an electronic surplus store and buying one there. The only thing you're really sacrificing is finding the exact keyboard you want since with surplus good your at the mercy at whatever extra shit was ordered. For example a lot of cheap g80 boards in America are used for POS systems so they have a card reader in them. In places like Germany a lot of them were used by hospitals so they usually have the hospitals branding on them.

Surplus stores encompass a large range of items.

I received my first mechanical, a Ducky Shine 6 with Cherry Browns. I'm finding the transition to not completely depressing the switch such as I did with rubber dome switches a hard habit to break. Now I'm not slamming the switches down and it's getting less occasional over time but I was considering getting some of those rings to help dampen when I do fully depress the switch and to help quiet it out.

TLDR; what are some good O rings.

That's IMO the point of RGB, not making retarded rainbows or whatever, but instead just setting it to a color that's not easy to find.

bought a rosewill rk9000 (brown switch) from ebay for 40 bucks, did I fuck up? Discovered that it apparently has a USB design flaw. A nixeus moda pro would cost 20 more dollars, but I'd want to change the keycaps and it doesn't use cherry switches.

people know plenty about it, general consensus is plum torpe clones aren't nearly as good as real topre so no-one cares

you can still buy it, they just cancelled the group buy and refunded all the people in it because the end product is so drastically different than what they paid for.

they'll be selling the sets on their storefront for the same price with a different name and accurate product photos.

Thanks for the suggestions! I hadn't really considered any of those yet so I'll look into them.

Just bought a Cherry G84-4100 PS/2 in white. I already have a couple black USB versions. These little fuckers are cool.

Had my Filco (rebranded SP) double shot SA profile keycaps for a week now. Best $50 I've spent in a while. These things are great.
