All about me
« on: Thu, 20 September 2012, 20:08:46 »
I wanted to post this after I got my first mech keyboard and here it is in fairly convenient bullet point format for easy reference:

 - I'm T.J.
 - I build my own computers and have since my first desktop way back in 2003.
 - I like clicky keyboards (it's why I found and joined this specific community) and I use a Logitech m600 mouse (fantastic)
 - I like other things as well and I'm sure a few of them will randomly come out through interactions.
 - I'm absolutely in love with the CM Storm I bought, even though I've typed on it for less than 20 minutes.
 - There are times I feel like I'm that guy that could rattle off odd facts, tangents and blurbs about most anything 'net related.
 - I need a new desk chair.
 - I seem to have already gotten the build my own custom keyboard bug as I am curious about the feel of MX Greens/Grays.  Blues, I think were the right choice for me, though.  Super clicky without the cacophony of buckling springs.
 - Even though I've not seen much real stuff about it, I want to try building a keyboard using wood that isn't a steampunk build.
 - And lastly, I bought three keycap sets before I even typed my first real sentence with a mech keyboard and the first set arrived at my house before the keyboard they're meant to be on did.

Welcome to Geekhack!

Sounds like you are hooked already - mind your wallet ;)

We also discuss chairs from time to time.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

And I've already modded my board slightly with a 33key zinc kit.  Metal is different to type on.

Additionally, I want a pure or poker.  But I also want gray or green switches so I may end up waiting until one of the many poker/pure user-designed boards comes out...

I'm not entirely sure if this isn't sarcasm, but...

the first set arrived at my house before the keyboard they're meant to be on did.

Same, I bought a set of blank white keys which arrived in a timely manner. But the keyboard was shipped from amazon.com and wouldn't ship to Canada, so I shipped to a friend's mailbox in the US and had to wait weeks for him to pick it up. And just today I learned ncix.ca had the keyboard in stock...
