spilled some sticky **** on my hhkb, so I'm using a fc600m mx blue that I got about a week ago. It's pretty nice actually

I got a FC660M PD for my beater board.  I want to swap the switches to ergo clears or vintage blacks, but it is pretty nice stock.

Got this in the mail a few days ago, put some caps I had laying around on it, but I'm planning to do a switch swap once I get my new de-soldering gun.

ZSLANE - What case is that you have on the iGK61?  Is that from iGK61 folks or did you mod it with a standard 60% case? 
Looking to swap out the plastic case on mine.  Dealing with practicalities.  Thanks.

At home right now I'm primarily using my Apple M0116 or my AEK II depending on how many keys I need to use.

At work I'm now using my HHKB though sometimes I rotate it out with my Vortex Race 3.

A rebranded Unitek K-258 with click-modded Orange ALPS. Phenonmal board but some of the stock keycaps went missing so it doesn't look the best.

Realforce 87U Variable Weight.

It's really growing on me again. :)
Current drivers: HHKB Pro 2 (with BKE Ultra Lights and Silence X rings), Realforce 87U Variable Weight, Realforce 87U 55g, Niz Plum.

Want to add a Leopold FC980C or a FC660C next with silent 45g Topre switches next.

Other keyboards I have: Magicforce 68 Cherry MX Brown, Magicforce 108 Gateron Reds w/ O-Rings, Havit Low-Profile Kailh Blue, Logitech K740

Yeah, it's a loooooooooooot of keyboards. :P

CM Masterkeys fill size with browns. Not a fan of the tall OEM profile these have. I seem to do a lot of typos because the keys feel too close.

Thanks! It's taking a little bit to get used to the small backspace key, and the lack of homing bumps, but really this layout isn't bad at all! And the switches are so awesome! I may have reached endgame...

ďAs psychoanalysts we understand how one of the things that makes for a certain kind of mental pathology is a hatred of reality and an attack on thought.

Trump is against any kind of rules or regulation. He sees everything as a kind of psychological straitjacket.

It is very hard for most people to accept that Donald Trump is not normal, because it is such an unusual situation. He doesnít believe in rules. Not ever - Donald Trump is like a two-year-old child.
Donald Trump actually hates loving families. He hates a deep connection between mothers and children. Donald Trump hates mothers and children. He cannot control those feelings. Therefore Trumpís goal is to separate mothers and children. He wants to punish them. Other people identify with the aggressor, the abuser. This is what Donald Trump did. He became cruel, like the parent, as a way of protecting himself from his own anxiety. Donald Trumpís father always wanted him to be a killer. So psychologically Donald Trump functions like a killer ó but he doesnít kill directly."

Ducky Shine Yellow Edition TKL MX black with Filco yellow keycaps.

It took me ages to get the Filco keycaps.
"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

A highly customized Realforce RGB. One of a kind Anodized Titanium case, Paracord, GMK caps from 3 sets, Backplate painted black mirror, Lubed with Graphite and PTFE plus silencers(O-rings). It now Thwacks like a Topre should. Sorry no pics. Say it didn't happen, up to you. Currently and probably ever I will have interest in anything else. Especially considering the amount of money I put into this. So then the controller dies. I ended up fixing it but not after I ordered a non returnable R2. In case anyone does not know R2 is he same board, different distributer $100 more. Although now the original is selling for $100 more than the R2, go figure! It does not matter to me, I am gutting the thing anyways, I like the way the light shines underneath the GMK caps onto the black mirrored backplate. It is pretty dim compared to stock. I prefer it that way. The case is anodized Black as well. Plus I have a custom wrist rest I had CNC'd that I have seen the likes of nowhere else. I can "rock" my wrists on it but generally I do not contact it. Combined with a modified Logitech MX Ergo for my pointer. It is modified to 26,000DPI since it is across 3x32" 4K displays. Believe it or not. Up to you.
