It's and anti bot question, it's supposed to be easy. The actual question on the site is:
Name the three letter acronym of a common computer interface used for peripherals such as keyboards and mice.

Just fyi.

I just ordered a Filco tenkeyless with cherry browns as my second mechanical board, as well as a set of blank keycaps...

Now I have to wait till the first week of next month when Brian at Elite Keyboards can get a set of blank keycaps. I'm looking forward to it.

Brian himself was excellent, and promptly answered any questions I had, so I'll probably go back there when I can afford to swap all the keyboards in the house to mechanicals. I'd strongly recommend shopping there.

Well I was reading over at geekhack and read about this Cherry G80-3
000, which looks like is what I want, since cherry reds will be out of the question for awhile. I like this KB http://www.datacal.com/p-1254-cherry...-switches.aspx it's a good price and I think it has more room for mods rather than the Filco.
So I think I might of found a winner!

a couple things you should know about this keyboard. it only has 2 n-Key rollover. there is no backplate and according to a Korean site the faceplate or housing can warp on you because the switches are mounted to the PCB instead of a backplate which provides stability.

at that price range there are alternatives like the i-Rocks KR-6230 or iOne Scorpius M10.

the i-Rocks KR-6230 has Cherry MX Browns, backplate mounted, 6+4 n-Key rollover with a memory system, rubber feet, 2x USB 2.0 ports, no Windows Key, 97 key layout.

good keyboard for light typing and gaming.

the / key has been repositioned and I think the key caps are silk screened.

mwave has it for $79 with free shipping.

the iOne Scorpius M10 has Cherry MX Blues, backplate mounted, 2 n-Key rollover, laser etched key caps, full layout.

good keyboard for typing.

Amazon/Ergogeek has it for $59 + $9 shipping.
