I believe Kip's already stated he can get filco's. All you need to do is send him the money plus some Dr.Pepper

On the way home I see a store I have passed many times and dismissed as just a 3C (sorta the Wallmart of computers). But something caught my eye. I go in and am quite impressed. They have good headphones, a good selection of cases and power supplies and in general a step up from normal. I am wandering around in a happy daze when I hear angles singing over my left shoulder. I look up and what do I see:

A whole row of Mechanical Keyboards. There are 3 (THREE!) filco's sitting side by side. I could click a black, brown and blue at the same time AT THE SAME TIME! Steelseries, sidwinder x4 and x6, and others. The Irocks was not even worthy to sit there and was on a whole other shelf. They seem to be about the same price as PCHome and Army group too, so bonus. Now I got to convince the wife.

I can ship you one if you want. They had English only or with Chinese, but I did not see any 10key less ones. They can order though if you are desperate. My usual deal is cost+1 Dr. Pepper. This is not a great deal but they are there. I do this so they start seeing me as a valued customer and making with the better deals. Like the all pink Filco they told me about.

Correction: money to buy a Dr. Pepper there. USA has the worst Soda pop, nobody would want our corn syrup Dr. Pepper.

Kip - if you read this what was the name of that store?

And this Sugar Cane version is the one to ask for. Limited release but findable. Dublin Dr. Pepper.

I've had enough. Just send him a private message. I'm absolutely sick and tired of your constant trolling and thread-crapping, and this isn't even my thread!

http://www.overclock.net/private.php?do=newpm&u=58914

Think about it! What good does it do to keep crapping in Manyak's thread when he is the only person who can address your daily negative (and extremely irritating) comments? Just send him a private message already!! Good grief!

Or wait: do you require the attention?!?! It sure looks like it! I mean all you're doing at this point is trolling over and over and it has become extremely irritating. You've become similar to a little child who just won't shut up. Manyak is the only person who can do anything about the things you keep talking about, but yet you keep posting it in here instead of just sending him a private message. So that tells me that all you want is attention! So congratulations: I'm giving you a ton of it right now!

Y'know, I used to think of you as a great guy who is very helpful. But now you've become an irritating troll who can't let go of the past (yeah, I know exactly why you keep trolling this thread). I used to be very grateful to have you around, but now I just wish they would permanently ban you. You're like an irritating fruit fly that keeps flying around while I'm trying to enjoy my meal.

Why do you keep coming here? Does OCN make you feel awesome because you think we are all inferior to you or what? You don't fool me for a second.

We all know ripster was beaten with PS/2 cables as a child, so most tend to ignore him, and I cut slack for anyone who likes Lego and knows of Dublin Dr. Pepper (I so do want some of that good stuff) but..

Rip, I don't think the guide says what you think it does. Let me quote it for you:
"So if your keyboard supports both PS/2 and USB, and your PC has a PS/2 port, there's no reason not to use it."

This is not saying "get PS/2 Now!" its more "PS/2 is not to be shunned and used if you got it." The difference is subtle but very real. The way I read it is that neither is bad so use the one you got.

And about PChome here in Taiwan. They are a very cool company to work with here. Good support and superb shipping, 30day $ back no questions added to every order. But this international thing is new to them so expect some hiccups. Good place to shop if your Google English to English skills are working.

PS. Tea colour switch = brown.

So would it cost more to have you ship one over or to get one from them?
post #9718 of 14564
you can ship total not more then 10KG for only $20.
10KG is around 4~5 fullsize keyboard.

Oh, thanks for pointing that out!

Might take you up on that one, Kip. That is, if you're sure you could get a tenkeyless ordered.

Since my volume control is now on my DAC, I really have no use for my numpad. (I was using it to map volume controls) As such, I'd like to free up the space and try out a new manufacturer.
