Hey.
« on: Sun, 09 September 2012, 05:52:54 »
Hi everyone. Been lurking for a tiny while and thought I best get around to introducing myself.
I'm from NSW Australia, in my 20's. Love gaming (currently addicted to Minecraft, have been for ages :P) I like FPS's mainly though.
Current keyboard I use is a Ducky YOTD with brown switches, though I must say I really do miss my blue switches on my Black Widow.
The BW was my first mechanical keyboard, but it started having issues of double typing ooooo all the time.

I'm a full time student and when not studying or pretending to, I am either playing games, browsing forums, dribbling over all the keycaps I want to buy or missed out on buying or hanging with friends.

Hope you all have/had a great weekend :)

Welcome to Geekhack!

I too play Minecraft, and have a Ducky, but just a Shine.  The YOTD with brown switches and, more importantly, yellow backlighting, was a sore temptation for me.

Avagoodweekend, what's left of it.
"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
