13 > 6


I have owned, used, rebuilt, and modified many variations of each.

Have you? If not, what are you basing your opinion on?

The Model M was an extreme cost-cutting successor to the Model F (with an order of magnitude fewer discreet components, for whatever that means).
The problem is deeper than reporters asking tough questions of both sides, but the view of politics these questions reflect. Simply put, this view is the one that Trump rode to victory on and built his cult with.
Democrats and progressives want politics to be about policies that will help Americans and solve problems; Trumpists want to make politics about lies, insults, personalities and tribal warfare, so that the American people continue to believe that politics is just a sideshow that has nothing to do with their lives.
Journalists should hold politicians accountable on both sides of the aisle, but they should do so in substantive ways, not by asking irrelevant questions that look more like gotcha oppo research than substantive questions about policy. At a deeper level, the choices that journalists and media companies make right now will have an important impact on whether we as a nation are able to rise from the destruction of January 6th to revitalize our democracy, or to slide helplessly into fascism.

Oh please. F is the 6th letter of the alphabet. M is the 13th. 13 > 6 last I checked.  ;D

If all goes well I'll upload a full build at some point. If you never hear about it again, pour one out for another M122 lost to some jackass on the internet.  :))

I know I can be a Jackass, but what has that got to do with anything? Do you know anything about the Model F keyboards? I know I really like them, but I personally don't like the layouts of most of them. The Model F AT is closest to what I DO like but it has no arrow keys.  But that does not make my Model M a superior keyboard.

I do know I love all my Model M keyboards. However, that doesn't mean I have no respect for the F.

I'm pretty sure he's joking/trolling/teasing. He'll find his way to the one true buckling spring eventually. We don't need to scare him away before that happens.

Until then, enjoy that M122 micmill.

Haha yeah he's just having a laugh.

I definitely understand the love for M over F, so I think it's fair.

HAha yeah it's not just the layout. The sound, the slightly stiffer keyfeel, etc.

That's a big jump, both figuratively and literally. Spacebar/domes/membrane need some cleaning maybe?

A lot of people take buckling spring VERY SERIOUSLY. I would include myself in that group. It can also be difficult to interpret intent/meaning without the benefit of cadence. All just a big misunderstanding, I imagine.

i went from M122 to the 60% before :) and i got 2 NIB but DPD completely destroyed one of the boxes and damaged the board inside (the seller did pack it good he had put it into a 2nd cardboard box and bubble wrap but DPD and FedEx are incapable of not destroying things) the calculator is a bit damaged as may be the space-bar stabilizer, i need to open it and maybe take photos for the DT wiki, if someone could update it as i do not have an account, and i doubt they would let a 0 day account change the wiki.

Dell 8115 JIS ISO.

New Ducky failed me within 2 weeks of usage due to factory fault and they refused RMA and insisted i use my Warranty. I am very sad. Very.

Going Custom. I am still hurting inside while planning my new build.

It is a shame one of the boards was damaged.

Your mention of the FK-9200 made me look it up it up, and that trackball looked familiar. It turns out I have a rebranded FK-7200 I picked up from a recycling facility because the caps looked like they were Alps compatible. They turned out to be too wide, if nothing else. They say that the FK-9200's caps are compatible as well. It makes me wonder if that's actually the case now. Mine has casing damage too, but I imagine it is functional. You made me curious about the domes, which are odd. Maybe they've got different mechanisms, but mine's definitely dome with slider of some kind and the tactile event is surprisingly sharp and pleasant for a dome board. I haven't compared them directly yet, but it kind of reminds me of Fujitsu Peerless (and now I realize that Chyros has a video on them and probably goes over all of that at length).

I do not have a DT account either.

It means they're constipated from having their head up their ass. It's pretty ****ing obvious that's the case when someone goes into goddamn overdrive because someone else dared jokingly imply their precious ****ing keyboard isn't the besterest evar.

Dude. Relax. That kind of talk is only gonna piss off the mods and get you banned. Fohat is a good dude and has been around for way longer. If you're new here, it's better not to stir things up, especially before you've gained some street cred. You wouldn't want to kick things off by pissing off the veterans.

Yeah, Fohat's a good guy. He's often the first one that will have a suggestion if you need help modifying or fixing a buckling spring board like your new M122. Let's all calm down. Playful jests were taken seriously, there's no need to escalate over a misunderstanding.

In other words, this place is populated by spergy little sociopaths and you don't want to piss them off because they're butt buddies with the people in charge.

Cool. I'll **** right off. I left high school decades ago and don't need this cliquey jackoff horse**** in my life.

I have raised children. Most people grow, some faster than others. The important factor is whether or not they want (and know how) to learn.
The problem is deeper than reporters asking tough questions of both sides, but the view of politics these questions reflect. Simply put, this view is the one that Trump rode to victory on and built his cult with.
Democrats and progressives want politics to be about policies that will help Americans and solve problems; Trumpists want to make politics about lies, insults, personalities and tribal warfare, so that the American people continue to believe that politics is just a sideshow that has nothing to do with their lives.

No need at all. Seems you know more than all of us. Why are you here in the first place? We were talking about what keyboards we use now, and I still use the same keyboard. We are so proud of you for taking us off topic, I thought it would be a good idea to include a picture.

Anne Pro 2. I love this thing lol. There are a lot of people who are doubting the power of a 60% keyboard. That is perfectly acceptable but I hate it when people just boil it down to its size. However, there are some positives that you can take away from the AP including the battery life when used remotely. You also have to consider that there are some boards that will serve the same purpose better, there are just some aspects of the AP2 which just works well including the price that is one of the lowest in the market for such a quality keyboard. If you want it, there are some online with both white and black colorways involved.
