Are the police in your area racist types? If so, you may not need to bother :lol:

It’s always a safe bet to assume an American police officer is racist. As someone who works with deputies I can tell you most of them are huge racists and Trump nutters.

I just started watching Chef’s Table and I love how the intro mixes Vivaldi’s Winter concerto with chefs sped up at the right places. It’s a great show. :keke:

Netflix’s Street Food on the other hand was a total bust imo. I blame millennials.

Shopping for a new keyboard on Amazon. I guess I'll try a mechanical one. With fancy coloured lighting. Ooh. I suppose I could also do with a mouse pad with fancy coloured lighting. Hey, these things are surprisingly affordable. My workspace is gonna look so pretty. :3

I'm thinking of this Havit one and one of these three mouse pads: #1, #2, #3.

I see huge RGB mouse pads that also cover your whole keyboard like this are cheap too, but my desk is probably too full to do those justice, sadly :P

I think the noise is meant to give you feedback that a press has registered, training your brain how deep you need to press and making missed presses less likely. I'm sure there's some adaptation involved. But since it's Amazon, I can always send it back and say it was too noisy. :D

From what I've read, there are less noisy mechanical models as well.

Mine was an early corsair design, so it may be, they have improved.

Oh, my vote would be for mouse pad one, it's tastful enough, without being cheap akd tacky seeming like two. Three however is more affordable and has a USB port. Did one have that aswell?

I'm going based on appearance. As always :D

Out of these, only #3 has a USB port. I'll probably go with that one even though the £1 saving seems pretty negligible and I'm unlikely to really use the USB port. #3 has a touch button for changing the light setting, which makes it seem slightly more high-tech than #1 which has a push button :P

It's all here! :awesome:

I'm gonna need some time to adapt to the loud clicky noises, but the lights are neat!

Made a little recording. It's all a bit smoother and more impressive IRL, but what do you think? :D

Couldn't resist showing off some of my Linux animations too. Brenden thinks they're silly. :( I think they're pretty and useful. :3


My motherboard has some of these coloured lights on it too. Am I officially a gamer now? :lol: (There are no games actually installed on this computer. I just like pretty colours.)

oooh! :awesome:

Sexy!

I love it. I'm actually surprised at how appealing I find the light up mouse pad :crazy:

I liked your screen animations, but in truth, I think I might be with Brenden on this one :D I'd find them distracting. But also very cool, just distracting.

The volume of the loud keyboard and the mouse buttons can be abit much late night though. It bugs the life out of me, so i will wish you luck getting used to it!

Definately looks good though.

My own rig, is all lit up too. I have pride rgb colours on its many fans and the same on cpu cooling unit :awesome:

I find myself staring at it in contemplation at times.

But... the cube gives you four desktops (more or fewer also possible btw) to use for four different purposes (e.g. different projects or personal, work, music, misc... I keep a Windows virtual machine on desktop 2, for example), allowing you to focus and avoid distractions, while providing a geometrically intuitive sense of where your windows are! It is the very ultimate in user-interface design.

The window switching is basically the same as on Mac OS I believe, except smoother and with more realistic physics.

The wobbly windows, while of course the height of cool, can admittedly get a little tiresome. :P I don't have them turned on all the time. But I will not deny my love for them. It is everlasting. :heart:

The cube is enticing, but I am on a mission to limit myself to one desktop or fewer. Less is more, as we "boomers and beyond" like to say.

I dare you to try it.
