Hidee Ho Neighbor!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So uhmm... yeah. I've been lurking here quite a bit lately. Over the years various Google searches have brought up OCN threads but I never dug into the site too much. More recently, I've been researching mechanical keyboards and looking for the perfect case. Actually, I'm typing from an OCN Ducky now. thumb.gif I prefer to do business with those I know and respect. Since this site has been proving more helpful by the day, it was time for me to join and hopefully add something of value to the community.

The first computer I owned was a Compaq Presario P166. It had this awful "Home Base" shell that did not play well with Windows '95. When the system died, I had to start learning about computers and figure out how to get Windows booting again. Since then I've owned several computers but built all of them myself. From 2004 to the end of 2008 was doing desktop hardware/software support and then actually managed a center for a couple years.

Recreational computing did get a bit overly serious with Team Fortress Classic. At one point I was on 5 teams in 3 leagues. MMORPGs don't do anything for me so I stick to FPS and problem solving games. These days I prefer to get immersed in a game with the lights low. Bioshock absolutely captivated me.

Modding cases began as "this case stamped mesh sure seems to block a lot of air". So I started chopping them out of all cases and adding simple wire guards. I've not gone any further than adding a blowhole and fans to cases, so I can't begin to call myself a modder.... yet. My case expectations are to get the benefits of everything without giving up anything. The short explanation I started here has already evolved into it's own thread. Start > All Programs > Notepad++ Ok, now I'm currently typing 2 posts on an OCN Ducky Keyboard.

Years ago I started being part of distributed computing with United Devices. Then in 2004 I moved over to Folding at Home. I've switched over to the OCN team and have 4 boxes running. My jaw hit the floor when I saw this "community" was ranked #4 at FAH. I had no idea the site/team was that big. Also, it seems that a few guys must have multi-national companies running FAH on all their boxes. Their scores are just insane.

Finally,I work as a QC for an electronics defense contractor. So I see these lovely nerdy electronics daily.

This KB has the brown switches so they are not clackity at all. However, years of pounding keys has me bottoming out every keystroke and still clacking away.
