Hello Geekhack, I'm Dave
« on: Mon, 24 September 2012, 04:24:19 »
Hello to you all!

I'm Dave, I'm from Australia and I'm currently on a quest for key caps and cool new keyboards.
I currently have a CM Quickfire with Cherry Blues. This is my first mechanical keyboard and I've have it for just over 4 months I think. I absolutely adore it.

I also, just today, ordered my first set of 37 PBT keycaps which I bought from a well known contributor here who goes by the name of geek_feng.

I've read through a few different thread and I'm really keen to get into these group buys as well as classifieds, considering keycaps and other items seem to be harder to find in Australia.

Best wishes,

Dave.

EDIT: I also forgot to mention I do use Reddit a lot and I'm on there far more often than anywhere else, my Reddit username is the same. As the Geekhack one.

Welcome to Geekhack!

There have been a few more Aussies joining up recently, and occasionally one will sell some keyboards in Classifieds which saves on the ridiculous shipping charges from o/s.

Key caps are much cheaper (in most cases) to ship from o/s.

Or there was talk of arranging an Aussie proxy to make Aussie group buys a bit cheaper.
"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

That'd be really cool.

I'd love to see a larger Aussie community of mechanical keyboard owners as most of you are from the US.

I'll also keep an eye on the classifieds!

Thanks.

Sorry for the late reply!

There are thousands of subreddits but /r/mechanicalkeyboards is up there. Full of cool information and there lots of great contibutors such as DanGWanG and ripster!

A few weeks ago, /r/mechanical keyboards was basically just ripster. Was like a blast from the past seeing all that spam.

What's wrong with ripster? Has he done something that didn't agree with the geekhack community?

He seems like a very good contributor and often gives away keys as prizes.
