Alps switch putting out double characters
« on: Thu, 17 May 2018, 19:56:33 »
I have a keyboard with Alps switches, a Dell AT-101W into which I transplanted orange Alps from an Apple.

It works great and I really like it but 2 of the switches sometimes return double characters from a single key press. The comma "," does it often, perhaps almost half the time, and the "s" does it perhaps 10%-20% of the time.

Any ideas on what might cause it, and/or should i just replace those 2?

Thanks! 
What the researchers found is that after controlling for gender, age, education level, and ideology, NFC [Need for Chaos] was strongly correlated with a willingness to spread hostile rumors online. Younger, less educated men were more likely to have a strong NFC, as were people who were lonely and perceived themselves as lacking social status. NFC is associated with support for Donald Trump, which makes sense. Both Trump and to a lesser, and in a qualitatively different way, Sanders offered the 2016 electorate — including all the susceptible, alienated and disenchanted folks who comprise it — a radical departure from the norm, giving voice to sentiments that had probably been bubbling in their followers’ heads for quite a long time.

The responses to three of the statements in particular were “staggering,” the paper says: 24 percent agreed that society should be burned to the ground; 40 percent concurred with the thought that “When it comes to our political and social institutions, I cannot help thinking ‘just let them all burn’ ”; and 40 percent also agreed that “we cannot fix the problems in our social institutions, we need to tear them down and start over.”

Yea the switchplates are getting worn-out and faulty. You can try to clean them with air duster see if that'll help. Most of the time I just replace them.

I'd replace the two switches. It could be some dust in the switch is causing it to chatter. Alps switches are notorious for easily collecting dirt.
