Sure. 'Cause if I'm not typing, that means I'm not working. And if I'm typing, that means I'm working.

When I stop typing, that means I've hit a difficult bug that can't be reproduced by creating a unit test, and my Google-fu has reached its limits.

So I'm really itching for a mechanical keyboard. The Cherry Blues feel really good to me. Reminds me for my first PC. On the downside, I don't I (nor my family) will be able to take that noise level for long. I've yet to try the Clears or the Browns. I have tried the Razer Orange at the store. I think I like them, but there was so much ambient noise at the store, it was hard to really tell how loud they are.

So I stumbled across the Logitech Romer G switches which many say are comparable to the MX Brown. Ended going home with a K840. Now the hunt for a wristpad begins...

The keyboardio arrived today. It's going to be tricky getting used to the layout, and there's a few minor quibbles about it, but overall I think it'll be fun to play with

Site wouldn't let me upload a picture, sigh

That's the one. Still getting used to the keys being in places where they probably really ought to be.

Well, if you like the $5 plastic keyboard, you should surely use that.

Just showed pictures of that keyboard to some of my co-workers who are now paying more attention to ergonomics and good keyboards. They think it is very pretty keyboard, but not quite $300 pretty...

It's really made for the tinkerer's market. If you're not going to fiddle with the firmware, you've got an interesting bit of design that honestly needs another iteration or two before it's really right. There's a few bits of engineering that they've still got to get right - for example, the key caps have a noticeable amount of play, which I'm not loving.
I don't think Das and WASD have anything to worry about here, but if you want to hack on your keyboard, it's going to be fun to hack on.
