@Dezponia:matrix.orgDezponia Hi CandyGumdrop, welcome :) And as mentioned that's pretty neat :3 11:50:38
@Dezponia:matrix.orgDezponiaI got an original IBM Model M ISO with the two-part keycaps from 87 or 88 I think. But the Model F would be nice just for the noise if nothing else :P11:51:41
@CandyGumdrop:matrix.orgCandyGumdropDownload out.mp311:51:50
@CandyGumdrop:matrix.orgCandyGumdropit's got lots of springy noise11:52:02
@Dezponia:matrix.orgDezponiaYeah it sounds like it "pings" quite a bit, but that's pretty universal I think for Model F right?11:52:41
@Dezponia:matrix.orgDezponiaPerhaps its a bit more noticeable in this smaller case, hmmm.11:53:29
@CandyGumdrop:matrix.orgCandyGumdropYeah I think it's cool. I might try it floss modded too I dunno11:53:31
@Dezponia:matrix.orgDezponiaAt least its easy to undo if you're not happy with it11:53:58
@CandyGumdrop:matrix.orgCandyGumdropI kind of want to make some DIY frankencaps out of some buckling spring stems and SA profile cherry keycaps11:54:21
@Dezponia:matrix.orgDezponiaThe simplicity of the buckling spring switches is quite neat. And by the nature of how they work its also one of the few switches where the tactile event AND click are always in sync with the actuation :)11:55:06
@CandyGumdrop:matrix.orgCandyGumdropYes that's something I particularly like. Cherry MX Blues deactuate before they click back upwards. And clickbar switches sometimes go out of sync both clicking down and more significantly back up11:56:46

@n1kl4s:mozilla.orgNiklasthe model f labs keyboards look soo good11:57:14
@n1kl4s:mozilla.orgNiklasif only they were less expensive 11:57:22
@CandyGumdrop:matrix.orgCandyGumdropI tried a Box Navy switch in a tester thing and it seems to me like it would be too easy to accidentally let go of a key when holding it down even if it's still clicked down11:58:29
@n1kl4s:mozilla.orgNiklashuu why 11:58:41
@CandyGumdrop:matrix.orgCandyGumdropThey deactuate quite significantly before they click back upwards when you release pressure from it, which is easier to do with their heavier springs11:59:25

@CandyGumdrop:matrix.orgCandyGumdropI made my own hotswap tester PCB thing for testing how switches feel Vs how they actuate12:01:37
@Dezponia:matrix.orgDezponiaThat's very cool :P12:02:16
@n1kl4s:mozilla.orgNiklasBtw what do you all think about split backspace my new build has it and I'm not used to it at all lol 15:24:35
@jez:petrichor.meJez (he/him)Oh, nice! 18:51:08

@n1kl4s:mozilla.orgNiklasIs there a good key tester for Linux? I have desoldered a prebuilt keyboard for switch modding and would like to check if all the pads still work15:31:41
