We're just advanced animals you retard and nothing more. It's all the more reason not to default to our basic urges which are primal and lead to nowhere. I don't believe in God but at least religion helped inspire higher states of consciousness. Sexual activity extremely decreases prefrontal activity. You sit around masturbating or engaging in perversions, you're surrendering your recently evolved region, the one with pure autonomy, over to a stupid deterministic instinct. A waste of this limited life. You're just too low IQ to realize these processes. You are better off injecting heroin than letting masturbation and sex perversions ruin you. I've used opiates never injected but they were easier to quit than a masturbation habit.

You know IQ points don't measure intelligence, right?
The meaning of the word "pervert" literally just means to turn away from what's normal. The fact that you are here makes you not normal (statistically), should that simple fact mean that it's wrong to be here?

that's kinda hard since there are so many parts that require a lot of space. I tried a dactyl (non manuform) and I feel it sits too high to be really usable. I guess it would be better to mount it on the side of your chair so you can just drop your arms to their sides

The most interesting part of the meetup was the professional stenographer that was there with their full set up. They had a bunch of steno keyboards there, but it was a real sight to see a professional type at 260+ wpm. They had a demonstration were someone stood up and starting talking while she was typing faster then he could speak. She also showed off how you can use a steno keyboard to code, and boy was it fast. People tried to stump her by having here write all sorts of things, but she had no problems even with weird words like crwth

>> No.66394852

There is the alps platespring which is about as close as you can get to a compact beamspring. Maybe a platespring clone in mx mount isn't too farfetched.

The guy who runs the model F reproductions truly has autism, and that's a good thing. It may have been delayed a few years, but you can't rush perfection. These keyboards feel almost identical to their originals. Any slight differences you may feel are probably just variance due to age.

>> No.66398462

It's the cost of the software as well. You see with steno keyboards instead of typing letters you type sylabils and the software turns that into a word. Also there's the cost of labor, not to mention pretty much the only people that buy these are courts. So that's why the professional setup costs thousands of dollars.

Did the picture have a mechanical keyboard in it?

Do you get mad if there is a mouse, an SSD and a few sticks of RAM in the photo? I know a lot of the people on here like to take artistic pictures of their keyboards alone on a clean desk or whatever but for some of us it's just easier to throw a gun in there for the American meme. Yes it is easier to put a gun on my desk than to clean it, and it is way easier than to work on the lighting and angle to showcase my keyboard. I know a lot of people on here are super proud of all the hard work they put into their custom builds. That's great. I bought a nice off the shelf keyboard based on this thread's advice and sometimes I post in here. Sorry to offend your sensibilities, but I probably will be back next week/month and if I post my keyboard I might just include a gun because it is a meme.

I got that gun when I was 15, deal with it. Also I guess you don't hunt and you care more about how pretty you look rather than how well you can shoot.

>A mouse
Wow a mouse, on a desk. That is incredible. That is not something you would find on a working computer setup. Also at least those are not completely out of the territory of what you would find in a tech enthusiast desk.

While a gun is something you need to get out of the way for to get and put on the desk indicating that all you want is attention and validation. It is pathetic and sad really.

>Sorry to offend your sensibilities
Wow that is some hypocrisy if I ever seen one. You are the one who made that long rant.

It's an old /mkg/ meme where people post either stock off the shelf keyboards, or off the shelf ones with some cheap and common keycap set, and throw in a gun or two. But then there are people like >>66412791 who do it unironically because they somehow think their boring stock keyboards are somehow interesting, especially when they don't even take new pictures; it's bordering on avatarfagging, but it almost always gives them (You)s so who is really to blame here?

They were complacent and literally flooded the market with their monopoly on mediocre cherry mx switches. Then the chinks got good at making mx switches and now they are panicking and trying to innovate but failing miserably. Their new romer gs are unironically shit.

IMO I think cherry clears and tactile grays are not that bad.

>> No.66415648

cherry isn't even mainstream when compared to omron or kaihua which are much bigger. Cherry MX switches have an inherent design flaw that causes them to be very fragile and fail quickly. All the cherry keyboards I've bought have had a couple faulty switches thanks to their leaf based design. There's nothing wrong with buying cheap stuff, but don't go around pretending it's good
