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! 
In his book A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, Comey wrote that working for Trump gave him “flashbacks to my earlier career as a prosecutor against the Mob. The silent circle of assent. The boss in complete control. The loyalty oaths. The us-versus-them worldview. The lying about all things, large and small, in service to some code of loyalty that put the organization above morality and above the truth.”

McCabe, who similarly had experience prosecuting Russian organized-crime rings, has observed that Mueller's approach to investigating Trump tracks how one would go about investigating a crime ring. "There are a lot of patterns in what Director Mueller is doing that are very familiar to me," McCabe told The Atlantic: "You can certainly look at what Mueller’s done so far to say he is doing exactly what we would do with the investigation of a cartel or an organized-crime family."

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.
