Couldn't resist the rhyme.
Yeah, kinda ironic since it's your wife that has the Das. Why didn't you try and have her use the Filco Blue Cherry? - that must have been a tricky one to get your hands on so I was surprised when you let it go.
She likes having the numpad and she likes the das. I won't mess with it now that its on her desk. Shes already wearing the letters off of some of the keys, and why would I risk the "look"? and a fair amount of "why can't you just leave it alone?".
I ordered the blue cherry filco from benippon if IIRC. Its not like I didn't like it, it was just sitting around not getting used so I sold it to a fellow geekhacker.
I can narrow down my favorites to the model m mini's, HHKB, filco with brown cherries and the filco with black alps.
Thats pretty good for me. I kind of wish I could just pick one and stick with it forever. But I really don't see that happening. : )
These keyboards are like a curse.
