A post in which I reveal my keyboard-fetish dreams have finally come true.

From this sorry thing...

A while back in an effort to force myself to learn to touch type at work, I blacked out the keys of my keyboard with duct tape. This worked. However, after two hot summers, the duct tape began to slide off and my co-workers said my keyboard was looking a little ghetto. It's true, my fingers were getting sticky and my typing full of errrrrrorsa nd musssstaaaaakes. Time for a replacement:

Enter the Filco Majestouch Tenkeyless Ninja!

To the future and beyond.

Thanks to the fine sales people at The Keyboard Company I am now the proud owner of this masterfully fine thing. And yes, those are metal [zinc to be precise] WASD keys. I've also replaced the 'f' and 'j' with radially etched Line2R green keys from wasdkeyboards.com and replaced the escape key with a red one. I'm sporting Cherry MX Brown switches with silencing rings under the main letter keys and the return key.

It is well nice to type on. I see many customisations in my keyboard-fetish-future.

Onwards!

  2. Having the proper keyboard for gaming can mean the difference between owning, and getting owned. Seriously. You don’t need to have the best keyboard, but you definitely need a good one. affordable mechanical keyboard
