Keyboard of the Month - November - Vote!
« on: Tue, 12 December 2017, 16:21:32 »
Sorry for the delay everyone! I'm finally getting round to painting my living room so everything from there is now in front of my PC, hence the delay. We've had a LOT of interest this month in Keyboard of the Month. We've had more +1s than I think we've had all year, and we even managed to entice the famed Microsoft Windows out of the shadows to grace us with his ****posting presence.

The nominees this month are:

Dudesnail's TGR 910

As always, the vote will last seven days. Good luck all!

That was difficult to decide.

Voted, finally :)
"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

dail snales votes seem pretty rigged.  I mean the topre board had thought into it and a lot of work while his is just a tgr.. basic white board.  not like daniel t's is any less special, but it has half the votes too.
