Long time lurker, first time poster
« on: Tue, 24 July 2012, 15:11:07 »
Hey,

I guess I've been lurking for a little while, and I've finally been able to get off my butt and post.

I'm a mail sorter on graveyard shift here in Canberra, Australia. While I haven't got a mechanical keyboard at the moment (confined to a laptop for now, but will be getting a desktop once I start university (which is in a few weeks).

I'm probably going to start with Cherry switches, then go looking for a BS or ALPS board when I'm a bit more experienced.

Thank you

Any Australian GHer. Great. Welcome. So you are looking into cherrys first?
Funny thing is, I have BS and ALPS boards but no cherrys! apart from a MY.
What particular cherry switch were you looking for?

Thank you guys and girls!

I would probably get some sort of board with MX Browns - I've got flatmates, and I don't wanna wake them up with clicky Blues.

Girls?

Wow, what a concept!

Hey, with that misogynist Ripster out of the way, maybe we can get some estrogen into this man-cave once again.

Women - WE LOVE YOU! - Come on over!
