A switch seems so simple to make, but I guess if they were then there would be more switch makers? Idk.

I know the LZs are 6061 aluminum and I believe the KMac does as well. Some of the other nicer stuff like FMJ and Hammer use a higher grade of aluminum. And I believe whether it's hard or soft depends on the color, but that most of them are soft anodized. There are others much more knowledgeable than I am at Geekhack, so I'd ask there.

Still my favorite clack color I think, only thing that could top it for me might be a transparent dark purple.

As for the aluminum, it wouldn't surprise me because if it was 7075 I am sure I would have known about it . I am going to buy a 7075 purple hard anodized case for my poker soon, the 1st round started but I have SO much keyboard stuff going on right now I can't possibly be bothered to enter it right now so I will get in on the 2nd round. My FMJ case should show up soon, I just got the 6063 aluminum one since the "premium" one cost nearly $100 more so that would have been 250 I think, which is kind of ridiculous. I can't blame feng but I just think that price was crazy for a 60% case.

It's like Thanksgiving. No one knows what day the actual feast happened or if a feast even happened so we just celebrate it on a Thursday.

I mean, unless you want to argue that Christmas is not a Christian designated holiday then that would be silly. If you want to argue that another holiday that you're actually celebrating took place around the time Christmas was scheduled then by all means, feel free to celebrate/believe that but you can't change Christmas from being a Christian holiday. It's like saying hanukkah is not a jewish  holiday.

no religious discussions missy.

Christmas isn't a holiday for anything more than greedy corporations poisioning the minds of parents and children to "want" and "gimme" and throw cash at the registers for "deals" on crap that people don't need.
because heaven forbid parents actually spend time with their little brats instead of buying crap for them.

i hate christmas with a burning passion, in my eyes its such a vile awful thing.

i HATE the shopping craze, people hurting one another for a freakin "bargin". People going to insane lengths to get into a store earlier than another. Christmas is just an awful thing to me. It just goes to show how gullible and weak the general population of humanity really is.


Plus that whole santa claws mythos.

Like its tradition to tell your kids some fatass in red is real and will bring them presents and you make them beleive this until they discover he isn't.
Yeah because lying to your kids is a great idea. no wonder no one can trust anyone anymore. Because we're raised under the impression and the fact that were constantly being lied too.

i hate christmas for so many moral non personal reasons and the "savings" i can take advantage of do not make up for it. I got my razer naga epic for 50$ off thanks to this dumb holiday. Do i feel its worth it? No, id rather pay full price for everything and never hear of this horrible holiday ever again. Because without even really wanting to, i helped contribute to something I loath.

People assulting each other over an xbox one.
really?

It makes me sick, it makes me ashamed to be human sometimes. Look beyond the veil and what you find is horrifying.

My family still celebrates Christmas and most of us are Atheist. We view it as a day to get together, eat some fantastic food and exchange stories. There are gifts involved, but it is not even close to the amount most families tend to spend. It is gross how much money is spent to try and make people happy. I find that the company is the best part. (just kidding the food is)

Ugh, I guess this goes for everything in a popularity contest but I get so sick of these "Favorite Switch Type" discussions everywhere online, blues, reds and browns are always going to win because they are the most common switches. There is nothing wrong with that but I can't help but feel that most of the votes and praise come from people who have only used that switch type they voted for. Seeing polls where blues win over 90% of the votes with every other switch type including topre getting no votes and even membrane beating all the switch types except blues. Why would you vote for the only switch type you have used, makes no sense kookoo.gif

I for one wouldn't ever give my opinion on something like that if it was so narrow. Guess it might be the same feeling as everyone on r/mechanicalkeyboards having to deal with all QFR's everywhere and everyone on headfi running around with ath m50's saying they are the best headphones evar guiltysmiley.gif It doesn't contribute anything, but then again, me complaining about it isn't either lol

I'm an anti-theist.

Christmas is honestly a time that makes me feel deeply ashamed to be a h.sapiens.

If I ever have kids, I'd vow to never allow them to get caught up into this crap because of my own choices. but at the same time, i can only imagine what kinda taunting they'd get at school because one of them says "We dont celebrate christmas, my parents hate it"

Jeez what an infection.

Can we please drop the religion talk, there's a reason the TOS says the following:

You may NOT:

- Partake in discussions about politics, race or religion or promote your own views in this area through any other means

Lets keep talking about other divisive topics, like why Topre switches are just overpriced rubber domes.

It's the same reason why Razer, Logitech, and Corsair win all these "best mechanical keyboard on the market" contests on websites like Lifehacker. They're mediocre, but readily available, well marketed, and from "1337" brands, so people buy into them when they're mediocre at best. There's always voting behavior dictated by post hoc rationalization, nostalgia (that's often a flawed memory), and so on.

I honestly think Clears would be much more popular if they were readily available and Topre would be more popular if it was cheaper and more readily available. Of course, I also think Blues are incredibly overrated. If I wanted a clicky switch, I'd go Model F buckling spring since Blues are just an inferior clicky switch when compared to buckling springs in a metal case with a metal backplate.

That said, just because something is voted the best by ignorant doesn't mean it's bad, it just means that the most readily available decent option that people have tried won. It only really becomes an issue when people who haven't tried any alternatives start to parade one win like that as the absolute truth.

I personally went with brown switches for my first mechanical because it was a nice... hybrid of things, and it had the features I wanted. I absolutely ~LOVE~ typing on blues though, and so at some point I'm going to try out some keyboards with clear and/or greens in them too... Absolutely despite the complete lack of feel that blacks and reds have though >.>;;;

And there are polls for switch type? I must not pay enough attention >.>;;;
