So the workplace I'm in involved far too much typing on a crappy dome keyboard. Then, I hear this clack clack clackclackclack click sound coming from my supervisor behind me. Curious to see what in the world was creating all the ruckus, I go and take a look at what would be my eventual downfall. He was typing away on a Leopold (I think that is how it is spelt) blank keyboard with Blue Cherries. OMGWTFBBQ, typing on it was like drinking the first beer after the elusive acquired taste; I wanted one. This started a long and exasperating search for the keyboard that I wanted to buy.

I searched and I searched, looked at Razors, too black and the LEDs weren't that appealing; Leopold, can't do, someone else already has one. So another coworker of mine came in with a Coolmaster with Brown cherries. It sounded much better, didn't nearly as loud of a clack but still knew that the keys had been pressed. But I still didn't like the browns or blues, I was after red cherries. The linear and light pressure was appealing to me. So I continue to look and then I find a very bad website. It did things to my wallet that I've never had happen before, it's still curled up in the shower. WASD Keyboards is a very bad website. Customizable caps, can choose the switch that I want, different COLOURS?!?!?!? What is this nonsense. Five hours later, after testing out each option I had available, I decided against getting a patterned look and just got something ordinary.

Ordinary turned out to be an engraved set of red keycaps, with white R1x1.25s and red cherries. But now I wanna have different caps for keys that I don't use that often, to spruce up a brand new keyboard (I haven't had it 5 hours yet). Curses modifications, curses.
