lol. It started working again but this is the 5th time tonight it's done that, and this time it stopped for like an hour. I just cleaned its cheap dell internals a couple of weeks ago too. Going to have to go keyboard shopping.

I'd highly recommend looking into a mechanical keyboard.

please excuse the noobness, but what differs a mechanical keyboard from a normal one?

Normal ones are rubber domes, the thinner ones are normally scissor switches much like a laptops, and then you have mechanical ones.

Basically just the feel of the keys. Normal rubber domes are mushy and nasty feeling, where as mechanical keyboards give you a nice tactile 'click' when you've pressed it far enough. Bunch of different switches to choose from too for different feels. I personally use Blue Cherry MX Switches in my Filco Ninja TKL, which are the loudest and 'clickiest' of all the switches.

Mainly just a much nicer feeling while typing, and if you can master the actuation point you can start typing a lot faster since you don't have to depress the keys all the way down for it to register.

Bunch of choices and prices available too. From plenty of companies like;

Cooler Master
Filco ( extremely nice keyboards, very solid if I say so myself )
DAS Keyboards
Logitech just released one...
And countless others, there's a subsection here dedicated to them if you want a list of choices and info tongue.gif

Mechanical keyboards use steam power.

Is that OCN keyboard still available?

Yeah. Personally, I'm a fan of the Majestouch 2 in MX Blues, but Ducky makes great keyboards as well.

I got a mechanical last year. I love it. Ducky Tenkeyless with MX Browns. It's nice to know that I have at least one piece of hardware that should work for decades.

Konsole, since KDE is my desktop of choice. Even if it isn't, if I have KDE libs and programs already installed I'll put Konsole on it to replace what I use. I like the tabs feature, so if I don't have that it's another terminal with tabs. I dunno, I guess I also just like how Konsole runs. I've played around with others but nothing has been as fitting as this.
