Hello... again?
« on: Thu, 21 September 2023, 16:58:16 »
Long time geek (my first computer class was on an apple ][, not even apple ][e, in highschool,) only found out about this place because of KLE, Adafruit, and that particular rabbit hole.

Hello if keyboards interest you, you've found the right place! I'd also check out https://deskthority.net/, they focus on vintage MKBs over there. Here at GH we are more focused on the new custom MKBs. Although there is definitely a good bit of overlap.

Same all the computers had either bad membrane or the standard apple keyboards (I actually don't think they are that bad but I prefer my mech boards of course)

Hi there fellow oldster :)

Granted I'm just a touch younger than you, we're both dinosaurs in the computing world.

Thanks all.  I'm pretty agnostic when it comes to keyboards, be they classic mechanical or new mechanical (but the ibm model m is nearly goat.)  My interest in DIY mechanical is due to the fact that carpal tunnel got me, and while I am glad this commercial split keyboard I have helps, I can see room for improvements.
