I have my desert boots, and my skater shoes, i need a pair of nice running shoes though.
I wanted to get flats but that'd mean being more girly-girl than I want to be, and they are just as uncomfortable as heels. those who wear heels are crazy, just saying, heels are for masochists.
Boots>running shoes>skater shoes. nothing else is relevant tongue.gif

I'm looking for styles of clothes where i can wear boots and it looks fine or even complimentary.

I can't stand them, i have a pair, and they are going in the trash, they hurt like hell. one of my friends is like "oh you'll get used to them" and im like HELL NO. H TO THE NO. I feel like my ankles are going to be ripped to shreds if i make one misstep.

It's also a change since getting the same switch defeats the purpose of having multiple keyboards in my mind. I should use a keyboard for a certain need. This is my keyboard I go to if I want to press the switch easier. This is the keyboard I want to use if I want to put more force on the key. This is the keyboard I want to use if it fits this layout scheme going on in my room or this is the keyboard I want to use if I bring it somewhere so it stands out. You know..different keyboards for different scenarios.

[Edit]

LOL, Just realized I like my keyboards like I like my shoes, useful for different scenarios and events!

That's fine, I think a lot of keyboard buffs here want different boards / switch types depending on where they are.
I kind of want to use my filco mx blue at work, and get a DS3 or something else backlit for home;

Just don't go doing what a lot of girls I know do with shoes and get a completely impractical keyboard that hurts to use...but LOOKS SO GOOD so you use it anyways, hahaha.

I dated a girl who was like that. Her shoe collection was just ridiculous. And any time she went out shopping (which she didn't do all that often) she'd buy more--despite admitting she already had way too many.

It was like crack to her.

It's nowhere near the same; you can get over a drug addiction. Speaking of which, does anybody know of a good cheap soldering for swapping switches?

Alright. So. I'm tired of researching switch types and confusing myself repeatedly. Over the past several months I've convinced myself several different times that I've found the right switch to have in my first mech keyboard only to realize I was a retard.

At first I was convinced that blacks were the way to go.
Later on I moved to reds to avoid the fatigue I'd likely get from the heavy weight of blacks.
Decided since then that reds would be entirely too light soooo...
I moved onto browns. Thinking that with a peak force being 10g higher than the reds, it'd work for me. The tactility would be a certain plus as well. Well now that I've read more about browns I've learned that the tactility is nearly nonexistant. The "grain of sand" description definitely turned me away from them.
So for a short while I focused on blues. I love the idea of having a very precise tactile response telling me when the key has activated. The sound is highly appealing as well although a little quieter would be appreciated. But upon remembering that the deactivation point is well above the activation point on blues and reading that people have a problem "double tapping" blues, that threw them out the window for me as well.

Somewhere in there, Topre was entertained. As was buckling spring. Topre was thrown out because of the price and lack of, IMO, nice looking boards beyond the HHKB and the Type Heaven. Also, customizability is pretty slim in the keycaps department. Buckling spring was thrown out because of the similar lack of customizability and the lack of modern boards outside of Unicomp's.

This brings us to present day. I'm stuck in limbo. I know a highly tactile switch is something I'm interested in. Linear switches are a definite "no go."

Based on my thoughts on the various switches I mentioned, what switch would you guys suggest me look into?

I prefer comfort over impracticality. Vanity is a 2ndary for me. Its the reason i went with an alienware over a Celvo(clevos look and sound like garbage, alienware look slick, soft touched, and have amazing sound).
Vanity is my 2nd choice, which is why i spent so long seeing which switch i could get.

I think i annoyed the hell out of paradigm asking so many times "blues or Browns?" tongue.gif But in the end, the keyboard HAD to have purple backlighting, only 2 remained, shine 2 browns and blues, i wanted clicky. only one keyboard remained.
Same process with my razer naga epic choice, i could have just have gotten the regular naga again when i went to replace the one i had broken. but the epic provided changing lights! but it also showed something more, the shoulder extra buttons were now on the spine... i could get he naga with purple LED's. Turns out to be the best purchase i ever made because i finally ended up finding the only mouse i can actually hold for a full day of 10~18horus of gaming without it making my hand feel like it was being clawed at. Well the regular naga's felt great but the smaller side grip had that last final touch.

But this buckling spring, this will be the first keyboard in... 4 years that i will have that doesn't have LED backlights... Because i want that switch. Also tbh, i think that ancient look... its a throw back, it looks great considering everything is all so flash, it strikes my heart a little... Its beautiful even...

double clicking problem? I have an MX Blue, and ive never had a double clicking problem and I'm 85APM+ in StarCraft2.

I'd recommend ordering one of those MX samplers to see how they all feel. It's cheap enough and gives you peace of mind.

 

I'd probably try MX Clears if I was in your position, seems to be what you're after.

 

The other 10% of women are the crazies with a shoe problem. I don't have a problem. ^-^

 

High heels are fine. You get into them when you're young and learn to balance and train your feet to take the pain like anything else. It's like those people that wear those toe shoes. It hurts at first because your feet aren't used to wearing them, but you get used to them eventually. Having a high heel that actually fits you is another issue altogether, but many women will sacrifice the correct size to wear the perfect shoe (looks wise).

 

That said, if you can't wear flats, you are no girl! :mad:

 

Every girl should wear flats.

Yeah I thought flats were the comfy shoes of the girl world.

And yeah, my ex with the massive shoe collection had pretty tough feet--she did ballet and hip hop dancing since she was little, lol.

The stuff they do to their feet is insane.

Back on topic, I'm pretty sure I'm either going clears or greens next. Not sure though, maybe go the other way and try browns.
I should buy a sampler...

Can anyone else comment on this? I thought difficult double tapping was a commonly accepted issue with MX Blues. But with 85APM+, that's hard to believe. Perhaps FranBunny here is an isolated incident? Lol.

When first moving to MX Blues (And mechanical keyboards period), I originally ran into a couple of double tap issues, but after a week of use this went away. My fingers adjusted and learned to double click appropriately.

 

I also wear boots, gothic clothing, lolita clothing, etc but we should talk about that in the OMPT not here. :p

Yeah, I am not sure why people make such a big deal about double tapping problems on blues, I never had a problem gaming on them.
