anyone know where i could get multicoloured translucent caps from in the uk? the ducky shine has reactive lighting and i have a vision of a rainbow on my keyboard =)

I use the dental bands from the orthodontist

I'm using a Logitech G110 that just has rubber domes. It's got some of the best tactile feel I've ever felt from a rubber dome keyboard. It's still not as good as a mechanical keyboard, though. Will be upgrading to one of those eventually.

 

I used to have a Dell keyboard that had Alps Black switches. Alps Black is a linear, but still clicky, switch. When I get a new keyboard, I think I'll go with one with Alps Black or MX Brown.

Also apparently I'm going to try Colemak, and then simplified dvorak. Those two seems to be the top two conclusions based on this http://patorjk.com/keyboard-layout-analyzer/

Having owned Both a brown and blue switch keyboard, I can say they're about the same loudness. The only difference is that the blues have a higher pitched clicking noise than the browns.

I'm still quite happy with my choice to go with Colemak. Have been using it for about a year now. The only annoying thing I run into regularly is having to change hotkeys for games almost every time.

So learning colemak made me realise that I could be better served with a softer switch.

I use a DasKeyboard 'Professional Model S w/ Cherry MX Browns.'

 

It. Is. Wonderful. Once you have a good keyboard I don't think its possible to go back... so nice to type on.

What are you running now? I'd get either Blues or Reds. wink.gif

I'm thinking of getting the HPE 87 I linked before in browns, but maybe I'll just try reds now. I haven't decided yet, but I'm leaning for brown since it has that tactile bump, but that linear feel of red still intrigues me. I know should've order those sampler switches from WASD Keyboards.

Sure, I'm in this club.

Typing on a debranded Quickfire Rapid Pro with Cherry MX Blues. Developing key shine rather quick.. I'm going to try to get my hands on some dark grey pbt caps.. If I can't find those I will either go with black pbt or dark grey abs. Gotta wait til I have money though. Probably black PBT... I think I'm cool with that, I'd rather have PBT than the grey.

*edit* Got a model m sitting on the floor the right shift and enter and backspace started sticking. I got some good use out of it, but I don't regret moving to blues when it started malfunctioning. I think I type faster on these lighter switches, even though I pulverize them.

Its been 6 days since I started learning Colemak and wow my QWERTY speed dropped drastically. I can't see how I can juggle between the two considering the greater part of the world is still using the latter layout and I'm relying more on muscle memory to type...

Still thinking on that HPE 87 kb I posted about. I think I'm going for red cherry since even Blue is kind of hardish for me to type on now that I changed to colemak, oddly enough.

Yeah. Tell us how that goes. I have read about alternate typing styles many times before

I'm not getting this part. Are you saying learning an alternate layout is pointless because the other, public computers you'll be using are configured with QWERTY?
