Were our leaders just stupid? Well, maybe. But there’s a deeper explanation of the profoundly self-destructive behavior of Trump and his allies: They were all members of America’s cult of selfishness. You see, the modern US right is committed to the proposition that greed is good, that we’re all better off when individuals engage in the untrammeled pursuit of self-interest. In their vision, unrestricted profit maximization by businesses and unregulated consumer choice is the recipe for a good society.
Support for this proposition is, if anything, more emotional than intellectual. I’ve long been struck by the intensity of right-wing anger against relatively trivial regulations, like bans on phosphates in detergent and efficiency standards for light bulbs. It’s the principle of the thing: Many on the right are enraged at any suggestion that their actions should take other people’s welfare into account. This rage is sometimes portrayed as love of freedom. But people who insist on the right to pollute are notably unbothered by, say, federal agents tear-gassing peaceful protesters. What they call “freedom” is actually absence of responsibility.
Rational policy in a pandemic, however, is all about taking responsibility. The main reason you shouldn’t go to a bar and should wear a mask isn’t self-protection, although that’s part of it; the point is that congregating in noisy, crowded spaces or exhaling droplets into shared air puts others at risk. And that’s the kind of thing America’s right just hates, hates to hear. Anger at any suggestion of social responsibility also helps explain the looming fiscal catastrophe.  – Paul Krugman 2020-07-28 NYT

I have one and don't think it will make a very good mouse pad.

It would be a terrible mouse pad.

Imagine the material of an inner tube, only quite a bit thicker and stiffer. My ebay description used to say "non-slip" but I got a complaint from one buyer who said that it did not help slippage, so I removed that term. Personally, I do consider it to have good traction and that is why I like it.

I use a piece on my work table sometimes and it is very tough. Incidental drops of solder probably wouldn't hurt it, but you couldn't actually lay a hot iron down on it without melting (and smelling terrible, I would guess).

Hello,

I just bought a few mats from fohat.digs a few days earlier. 

Attached are pictures of the mat that I have on hand at the moment.  It's not especially slippery or grippy, which is fine for me.

If you are extremely heavy on your keyboard movements, you might actually move the mat slightly sometimes.  I have never had any such troubles, but I could move my keyboard if I give a little extra push.

At first, the mat looks pretty ugly, but after a while, its grown on me, and I don't really see it much.

If you want some cheap mats made to size, I'd highly recommend most people to buy these.

Looks simple and functional, which is all you'd want!
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s 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

Thanks, guys. This is an industrial roofing material so it is not intended to be pretty, but on the other hand is extremely tough since it is made to have a 25-year warranty while exposed to the elements!

It is not soft or grippy like sorbothane, and would be terrible under a mouse, but it is a great utilitarian underlayment.

Yup; still got mine under my Realforce at work. I got one with excess mat with the intention to cut it and fit under the board, but I've kept it on and use the remainder for resting my fidget toys.

I'm wondering if I could save a bit money and buy this instead of the official HHKB Vibration Absorption Mat. Anyone have both to compare? Also would you be willing to cut it in about same dimensions.   A bit undersized and leaving free spaces for front and back feets and the 3 screws in the back.

No reason to cut one of these mats up just use it how it comes for the hhkb.

I was just kinda thinking about attaching it properly on my keyboard so it would need cutouts. But I guess I can do that with normal scissors myself if I ever feel need to.

Anyways do you still have the materials?

The anti-vibration mat from PFU is much thicker and has better grip than the rubber mats that I got from fohat.digs.  I'll attach a  picture to give you an idea of how the anti-vibration mat looks compared to fohat.digs's mats.

Like fohat.digs mentioned earlier, his mats are utilitarian and they are great for preventing more important things from getting damaged.  I like to put it under the PFU mat to keep the foam safe.
