So, what are you asking?

Sidewinder X6 definitely isn't NKRO if that's what you're wondering, and neither is the number pad apparently. I'm using one right now.

But they did tweak it to allow you to hold down WASD and not lock out the adjacent keys...

The number pad is not as nicely tweaked tho, although the detachability is awesome.

Hi guys!

First, I'd like to thank you this spectacular thread. No wonder that it's the number one result when googling for mechanical keyboards.

As the crazy inventor and project leader behind a revolutionary innovative mechanical keyboard that is currently in development, I try tap into every relevant source of information regarding mechanical keyboards and as you probably suspect this thread is quite a relevant one.

I try to not being overloaded with information but this thread gives me a hard time as it moves extremely fast. I'm currently left behind with about 20 pages and trying to catch up. My primary problem is that there is too much "noise". Every once in a while a newbie comes along, asks a basic question, it gets answered, then the same question gets asked by others over and over again until the universe (or the server) collapses. In other words it's rare to hear any new information from an expert's point of view. I'd consider the debut of a new mechanical keyboard a relevant piece of information for me, for example.

Basically all of this comes down to this basic question: Does anyone want to collect the relevant issues that are mentioned here? I think about a blog or a Google Group. If nobody wants to do it then probably I will but I usually look at this thread on a weekly basis and I thought that a native forum member might want to do it.

Not having an RSS feed is the other complaint of mine which is largely irrelevant for me if the former issue gets solved, but still annoying. I think that it's maybe possible to provide if using the http://www.overclock.net/computer-pe...ide-10000.html URL which redirects to the URL of the last page of the thread and then use XPath on HTML with Yahoo Pipes and make an RSS output from it. I'm not sure it will work, but maybe.

Primarily new keyboards, specifically new mechanical keyboards. I'm also interested in any new technology (new switch type for example) that is related to keyboards. Keyboard mods and new companies selling keyboards or keyboard related accessories also sound interesting to me.

To solve the problem about not having an RSS feed, I recommend subscribing to this thread. To do so, perform the following steps:
  1. Scroll to the top of any page in this thread.
  2. Open the Thread Tools menu (it's right above the first post on whichever page you're viewing, over to the right a bit).
  3. Choose Subscribe to this Thread.
  4. You'll then be presented with a page that has 2 drop down menus and a button that says "Add Subscription".
  5. Make a selection that best suits your preference from the first drop-down menu, and then click "Add Subscription".
If you choose "No email notification", then the only way to find out if this thread has received any new replies is to log into your Overclock.net account and view your User CP (or User Control Panel).

If you choose "Instant notification by email", then you will receive an e-mail every single time this thread receives a reply. This option is great for really slow threads.

If you choose "Daily updates by email", then you should only receive one e-mail message every day, or at least on the days when this thread receives replies. This option is great for busier threads where it might receive a couple of replies or more every single day (such as this thread).

But if you choose "Weekly updates by email", then it's like the Daily one, except I don't know if there's a set day for receiving the updates - but it would make sense to me that there is (like, it could be every Monday or something). I don't know what this option is good for. But I bet that there's somebody who knows.

I have to admit that even though I am absolutely and positively in love with my Filco Majestouch Tactile Click NKRO (yeah, I love typing it all out), I'd probably love it even more if it had separate media keys (an absolutely full set, including a mute button), a USB port or two up by the cable somewhere, and of course full NKRO is a must.

Oh, and I suppose a longer cable would be nice. This one has a 4.9 foot cable (1.49352 meters). It's just barely long enough for me, and I can't be the only one who feels this way. I even have it plugged into a 1.5 foot USB extension cable to give me some more slack.

I guess that's all I can contribute.

If you want media keys, who don't you just use foobar, and assign whatever ones you want? I use num* to start/stop, and num +/- to skip songs. I can't imagine anyone needing media keys for video

Because Foobar is useless to me. Not only that, but I don't like its Graphic EQ. I also never listen to MP3s (so I'd certainly never listen to FLAC). Additionally, I don't care about this as much as it sounds.

But ultimately: I said separate media keys (like on the Lycosa or the G15).

This doesn't mean it bugs me that I don't have separate media keys. I honestly don't miss having media keys at all. But if I had them - and again, if they were separate (as in not a part of the 104 keys), then I guess I'd use them just like I did when I had the G15 and the Lycosa.

So, I'm not looking for solutions because this isn't a problem for me. I mean, I'm well aware of AutoHotKey too, but I haven't become interested in it yet because I don't really need anything like that yet.

I recently got an IBM model M13 and have been reading up on it. Did you know the switches themselves aren't mechanical? They are buckling spring keyboards with membrane-sheet switches.

Why don't you listen to mp3's or FLAC? Also, what is so useless about Foobar, it should play whatever audio format you DO listen to, which I assume is CD's.

i just used my old dell keyboard again cause my friend was getting annoyed of my ABS M1 and I just falling in love with the feel. The Alps Black seem like to much force. I think im use this dell keyboard untill the 6Gv2 comes out. Do cherry blacks have less force than the Alps Black.

P.S on another note i am also switching from my Deathadder to my 3 year old IME 3.0. What is it with me and old gear?
