Latest purchase?

RE: Latest purchase?
Nice. I heard the Das Keyboards can have some issues. I opted for the Ducky One with brown MX switches and (monochrome, not RGB) LED back lighting. Compact for a 104 (?) key keyboard and heavy so it stays put. I like it.

RE: Latest purchase?
The only issue I've ever had with mine, is that the Fn key (and associated media keys) don't work when passed through my KVM. Though, since they only worked on my Windows box anyway (Linux ignores them), it's no great loss. It's interesting to see someone else who actually uses MX Browns by choice, as anytime I mention what is in my Das, people online tell me to get a better keyboard. lol

The Fujitsu has a steel backplate, so it's very heavy as well. Even with one of the rubber feet missing, it still doesn't slide around on me.

Ducky One MX Brown 87 keys here. My only gripe is the caps lock key which isn't beveled on its right side so i sometimes hit it when i press the 'a'

Yeah, and unlabelled keys or you're a loser I guess. Pffft.

I wanted a good keyboard, but it's not necessary to wake up the kids at night. I'm not a gamer. It was the sensible choice.

Just bought this Visual Workstation 320 from an eBay seller located right here in Chapel Hill. Looks to be in good clean shape and nicely configured, but I'm going to revert it from Win2K back to WinNT 4 as originally configured. I briefly owned one of these ten years ago and while it's far from the coolest workstation SGI produced it's sort of an interesting system in its own right.

I did want to get one of these original cube logo versions at one point. Even though it was a windows box with an SGI logo on it I remember thinking that the dual CPU setup was pretty enticing. There are copies of win NT Maya 1.0 and Softimage on Vetusware that you can probably load up on that beast.

Very nice! These are very cool little systems! Smile
