I would say get a mech keyboard and lower your monitor, it's not good to have it that high
>>
>>57810631
Not him.

wrong and wrong

Memechanical keyboards are the biggest bullshit I've come across yet. I had worse typing experience on my cherry mx browns, than on my Logitech Internet 350, that cost four times less 8 years ago! And monitors that are higher make you look up, which makes you sit leaned back, and with a straight neck instead of being hunched.

Decided to reinstall windows because I was getting some weird errors trying to install something and the next day my webcam started freezing randomly and I was getting audio skipping, so fuck it. Took about 40 minutes to reinstall, another ~60 minutes before everything was configured right back to how I had it.

I remember /m/ used to have edit wars with an autist called Ryulong. Even after he was banned (because of Gamergate edit war), he still had his cronies revert everyone's edits on Kamen Rider and Toku articles.

The thing with wikipedia isn't "SJWism", but rather that admins are a cabal, and they decide what goes in what doesn't. Also they all have "pet pages" that they never let anyone edit. Wikipedia has less and less editors every year because the people higher ups keep shooing everyone away.

They're not shit, they work well, don't gain or lose time like a crazy handwind watch without services and they're nice.
Unless of course you live in a shit place where the value of the people depends on how much money they have on their wrist.

nope. The bottom row is non standard so you can only use the keycaps on corsair keyboards. Also its not all mechanical (pic related). Its a pain in the ass to desolder every switch. Just buy them individually on places like mechanicalkeyboards, techkeys, massdrop, etc.
>>
>>57810279
I'm not talking about keys set aside for macros via software support. I'm talking about easy access, on-board macroing hardware that can be applied to ANY KEY(hence the name, "anykey") extremely rapidly. I have around ten keys on my keyboard remapped, and I remap the tilde, tab and caps lock keys constantly when needing to use a symbol often that is awkward to type, extremely quickly and easily. it makes working objectively faster, and I'm not sure why it was abandoned as a standardized feature.

Are you b8ing? Its compromised because intel/amd bends backwards to accomodate nsa, not because the code is closed source. It could be relased under some type of open license but that would still mean nothing because code is signed and intel/amd do not provide keys to anyone but nsa
