So with the money I saved from not buying the stupid limited run keycap set, I got:

-A full set of Gateron Oil King Switches
-Two sets of keycaps
-Keycap storage boxes
-Car audio grade sound dampening material to swap for my case foam


And still have money left over. :rofl:
You're doing it wrong.
That's not how hobbies work dammit :rofl:


Also with money left over it's time to buy Satisfaction 75 r2:

So why is that $900?
It came out a while back in 2018 I think. It came out at the right time with great materials (aluminum block, with sandblasted brass plate and brass weight that's engraved) weighing at 4lbs or so. It has this whole appeal of being inspired by Capt Morgan's ship, Satisfaction. It's got custom PCB and there was a lot of hype behind the brass knob and oled screen. Original cost 350. V2 cost 480 and fixed few quirks in v1. Both sold in minutes and had fairly small runs.
I've seen them on sale for over a grand at peak popularity. It's basically a souped-up, boutique, and really hard-to-find version of GMMK pro with oled screen.

And above all it looks dope af:

During the peak bubble times, I've seen some really egregious ass shit like this one: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=110661.0

The best feature about that is the little screen that shows the active layer.

If that’s programmable in any way, all the better.

I watched some of that. He has no idea that the MX Master mouse is ALWAYS wireless. Plugging it in only charges its battery.

I'm losing trust in LTT videos. They just did a react video. A fucking REACT video. I hate that boring shit.
He’s a keeb nerd on their unboxing channel, idk what you expected

Anyone wanna tell me why my work Dell will throttle itself to 0.6ghz sometimes after I unplug it from the dock? Or sometimes when I plug it into the dock?

Have to restart it every time this happens which is a pain in the ass. Goes snail speed.

Probably something to do with being on battery power/AC power and switching.

Check "power saving settings" or "battery behavior" either in windows or dells built in utility.

Yeah, tried to adjust them but they're locked to just the custom profile. Have to reboot lol. It's not thermal throttling, it happens specifically when it changes between wall and battery power it gets stupid.
Yea it is in your power settings.

Windows has settings "power limit on A/C" and "Power limit on battery" and your computer keeps switching
