Back in 2011, this was the only place on the internet that had cool stuff like blank PBT engraved keycaps, so I quickly signed up and ordered two sets from imsto.

Of course, that was way before I found out about GMK doubleshots and what not, it's funny how mainstream mechanical keyboards have gotten.

I still think of GMK as a new thing lol

Well that's another thing too.
Mod's like to do vindictive **** to people that annoy them but they won't take a stance against things like fake clacks or other ****ers that abuse things.
They don't proactively moderate the group buys. They don't stop the drama in gb. They don't issue warnings or ban people who suck and mislead people on classifieds.

Then again half the mods are in high school and college anyways.
They don't clean up any of the sections from garbage and then whine when people post too much on off topic.

Haha nice comparison. I bought a Ducky w/ MX brown a few months ago. Now I gave it to a friend and I use a Topre board. Thanks GH!

yes, i bought the k70 less than three months ago. i was perfectly contented with it and thought it was the best keyboard i've seen... aluminum top, stepped up keys, thick cables, non tramp logo, with just two imperfections: non standard bottom row layout and of course, flimsy keycaps to go with it. i came here to look for advice on where to get a keyset, so i typed corsair k70 on the search box, read the whole thread with corsair dave, saw a few members sporting either an hhkb sig or a title with an hhkb tag on it, searched for hhkb, saw posts about korean custom keyboards and artisan keycaps, kept reading.

fast forward 3 months later, i still haven't bought the said keyset but instead found myself with an hhkb pro2, a duck viper, a poker, a bunch of keysets i haven't even opened yet and now a fetish for anything gmk...

I bought a Poker 2 w/ blues after my Ducky. Then I gave the Ducky to a friend and I bought myself a Novatouch. I'll sat a bit on it for now because I like it. I just need to buy new keycaps set to try them out.

That will build, having all those keyboards is simply NOT enough you need to start acquiring various key-sets to finish their progression towards perfection. 

NEVER give up on attaining that very rare commodity known as GMK, BSP and Full contoured SA, those are the current BEST of the best versions for all your keyboards, but don't stop at only buying a few keyboards you must attain true keyboard spirituality and build your collection to at least 300+ then the gods shall bestow upon you, the gift of true tranquility  :) .

How did he move from being well accepted to being such a jerk that nobody like?


He had a tremendous knowledge, along with the time and energy to single-handedly create a huge body of work with loads of great wikis across the keyboard science spectrum. His photos were great, and his explanations were clear and to the point.

He was helpful and patient with me during my first few months here, and I credit him with the foundation of my keyboard knowledge.

At some point, perhaps 3 years ago, he started getting mean-spirited and insulting, and continued spiraling downward into worse and worse behavior until he had pretty much alienated everybody.

I am an old man, and I have seen a lot of ****, but this is one of those rare cases that completely mystifies me.
"I never understood wind. I know windmills very much, I have studied it better than anybody. I know it is very expensive. They are made in China and Germany mostly, very few made here, almost none, but they are manufactured, tremendous — if you are into this — tremendous fumes and gases are spewing into the atmosphere. You know we have a world, right? So the world is tiny compared to the universe. So tremendous, tremendous amount of fumes and everything. You talk about the carbon footprint, fumes are spewing into the air, right spewing, whether it is China or Germany, is going into the air. A windmill will kill many bald eagles. After a certain number, they make you turn the windmill off, that is true. By the way, they make you turn it off. And yet, if you killed one, they put you in jail. That is OK.

Thanks for the explanation.

That's a pity ... Lost a good guy according to your description. R.I.P good version Ripster.

Maybe all he needed was just a little love and understanding, like all old men.  Makes no difference as to whether he's a Rat-Bastard Mongrel, you still occasionally need a little tenderness to calm the maelstrom inside  8) .

Whoever wrecked and destroyed and deleted the Geekhack site and structure in June 2013 (or was it June 2012?) is unquestionably a Rat-Bastard Mongrel who eats Satan's **** in Hell, and the general consensus of the rumor mill seems to be that it was he.

I would like to know the actual facts from someone who knows for sure.

Same here there was never any concrete evidence that you could present in court proving 100% he was the one responsible for destroying Geekhack back then.  Everyone got on the steam train blaming him for the devastation without gathering any facts and sorting away any confirmation from rampant innuendo.

Just surprised everyone seemed to know here on this forum who the infiltrator was when even the CIA find it hard to track any hard core web attackers.  They currently can only track countries as being the one's responsible for some damage on sites situated around the US.

Never, ever trust rumour mills and what someone else says because it helps muddy the waters on who actually committed the crime against Geekhack.  Not saying I'm a Ripster supporter in any way BUT to say he is so cunning as to bring down an entire website on his own is like comparing George Bush to Terence Tao  ::) .

I would be very surprised if the CIA was proven to be as inept as they like for people to think.
There is no strategic advantage to showing your full hand before the game is over. That said, the US likely has far stricter "rules of engagement" than most 3rd-world countries, so our agencies probably do work under a handicap.

My understanding was that the-one-too-often-named is a highly intelligent, highly-trained, retired computer engineer who was enmeshed in the highest levels of the Geekhack structure since its early days. I assumed that whatever he did was well within his capabilities.

Wait, are you really serious?

$7K?

And elsewhere in the forum people are complaining about the best and rarest keyboard in the world costing $2K?

Yes.
It is beautiful but is there a reason for such a price? Is it made in some strange/rare matters or something like that?

One must be crazy to buy a cap for that price ...

Well I guess that they may not be the same person. The question is: is $7k just what someone asks for it or did someone really buy it for that price?!

You should join geekhack if you like dumpster diving because geekhackers will spend tons of money on stuff fished from the trash.  :p
Most of the modding can be done on your own once you break through the psychological barriers.

I'll give you the other side of the question.

The reason I joined Geekhack, is due to the sheer amount of knowledge. I'll admit, I came from Reddit in the fall of 2013. The majority of posts on r/Mk referenced this site, to the point where I felt I need to come to the source of it all. Why get second hand information, when I can get it from the people who know the most? I've also found out how easy it is to spend money.

If you have lots of disposable income and don't have a wife who will beat you for buying too much crap.... this is perfect!
Also, it's great if you like posting a bunch of GIFs everywhere while feeling like you will piss off the moderation team and get banned....

I have neither a disposable income nor an understanding other that won't beat me for silly purchases.

GH hurts me so good.... am I masochistic or what?  :-[

That's why we need to stop the blind hate towards /r/mk.

Each hobby has his entry point and begginer mistakes. We just need to help redditors that want to go further Corsair/Ducky Shine/Razers ...
Lot of people will be more than ok with just a gaming branded board just like they would be pleased with their Dr.Beats.

I'd repeat my words and say we should share the GH content to reddit to show them there's thing to do besides changing caps and spray painting.
And if we do it without linking to GH, but rather build a reddit post, it would be even better.

I would rather consolidate the information than dilute it.

Never having delved into the reddit thing, on principle, I don't know what is there, but between Geekhack and Deskthority there is plenty of information and discussion going on.

Posting something on reddit to point people in this direction would be helpful to them, but shunting chunks of this forum "off-site" would likely weaken it and ensuing conversations conducted "over there" would be lost to readers of this forum.

"Turf wars" are usually silly and detract from the underlying subject. I say let it be, and people will find the right place for themselves.

And there is is the old maxim: "There is no such thing as bad advertising" which is probably at work as well.
"I never understood wind. I know windmills very much, I have studied it better than anybody. I know it is very expensive. They are made in China and Germany mostly, very few made here, almost none, but they are manufactured, tremendous — if you are into this — tremendous fumes and gases are spewing into the atmosphere. You know we have a world, right? So the world is tiny compared to the universe. So tremendous, tremendous amount of fumes and everything. You talk about the carbon footprint, fumes are spewing into the air, right spewing, whether it is China or Germany, is going into the air. A windmill will kill many bald eagles. After a certain number, they make you turn the windmill off, that is true. By the way, they make you turn it off. And yet, if you killed one, they put you in jail. That is OK. But why is it OK for windmills to destroy the bird population?" - Donald Trump - Turning Point USA speech - 2019-12-22

Because we have esoomenona doing our profit calculations.
