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!

We sincerely want to hear your opinions concerning keyboards and other things!

For the first time, the United States has been demoted to the status of "backsliding" democracy by a major global watchdog of such things. The International IDEA think tank made the change in its newest report, citing "declines in civil liberties" and other factors. The United States now joins troubled inching-towards-autocracy nations like Hungary and Poland — which, notably, have recently been celebrated by far-right pundits as potential models of what this nation should become.
We are still a democracy, but the things that make us a democracy are themselves under attack. International IDEA is blunt in pinning the blame where it belongs, calling Donald Trump's attacks on the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election "a historic turning point." The Guardian quotes International IDEA Secretary General Kevin Casas-Zamora as he notes that "the increasing tendency to contest credible election results, the efforts to suppress participation (in elections), and the runaway polarization" are among the "most concerning developments," and that Trump's attempted nullification of the election with false claims of fraud “was soon replicated, in different ways, in places as diverse as Myanmar, Peru and Israel."
