    Inexpensive, simple, full mechanical keyboard?

    Had very good luck with my Das keyboard - it's been over a decade and it's still trucking as my "office" keyboard - everyday use for the past decade or so.

    The Z Build 2.0

    Out of curiosity, have you run the Noctua fans (with the splitter) to one of the PWM headers on your motherboard?

    Logitech Switch Issues

    Here's what I ordered: https://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/omron-electronics-inc-emc-div/D2F-01F/SW502-ND/83266 No idea if the ones you linked would cause any trouble (and depending on the model of your mouse they might be the right ones.) I just looked for the Japanese equivalent to the...

    Logitech Switch Issues

    If you like the mouse replacing their cheap switches is pretty easy and very inexpensive. I replaced the Chinese-made Omrons in both of my G5s with Japanese-made Omrons when one of the switches started flaking out, cost me less than $5 and took MAYBE 15 minutes from start to finish. I just...

    Tubing advice

    I don't see any glaring reasons it wouldn't work, but I'm not an expert and I didn't even stay at a Holiday Inn last night.

    Tesla disables feature after car is purchased, claims feature 'wasn't paid for'.

    Not going to lie, I'm not dismissing that as a possibility. **edit** Think things through a tiny bit before you jump to conclusions, or just look at the cost of service for a decent mechanical watch - last time I sent my Breitling in for service it cost $900 just to crack the back of the case...

    Cellphone Radiation

    Cellphones causing cancer?! What's next - are you going to tell me a pint of bourbon and two packs of cigarettes a day increases my "risk" of cancer? Hogwash.

    Linus from Linus Tech to Possibly Retire

    Wait... explain to me how the video title "I've been thinking of retiring" is what he's "supposed to do" when he's taking a vacation... I mean I'm really struggling here - what else could he have done?! And don't give me some obvious answer like drop a video with the title "I'm going on vacation...

    Linus from Linus Tech to Possibly Retire

    Maybe I'm missing something here but... why does anyone on this site care? If you're [H]ard you passed the "LTT" level a LONG time ago. He's got a purpose, but that purpose is mostly teaching fortnite players which mouse his sponsor told him to promote. I've watched a handful of his videos and...

    what would be good DAC

    Sounds like you just need a tweak from Coconut Audio. **edit** To be clear that was sarcasm. BUT aside from a cable issue or ground loop I really REALLY doubt it's a "DAC" issue. I've tested out my AMB gamma 2 (optical and USB) against my Crosshair Hero VIII onboard and some cheap chinese...

    Craigslist finds

    Not Craigslist but still, I had to come to gloat. I snagged a pair of nearly mint B&W DM601 series 2 for *drumroll please* $29.99 at my local Goodwill today. Having been to different Goodwill stores in WI I realize they're not all the same, so for reference the ones by me are basically a thrift...
