/g/ help I just got a notice from my boss that I am to "cease use of your keyboard immediately as it is offending other employees" otherwise I will have a strike against my employment (3 strikes and you are fired). Is this legal or? FYI I am using a filco mechanical keyboard at work as I find it ergonomic and generally prefer mechanical keyboards for writing on.
Did you sign a contract?
If no, they can fire you for whatever reason they want so long as that reason isn't something out of your control, like genetics or disabilities.
Also, you knew exactly what you were getting into when you bought a loud keyboard with loud switches to be "that guy".
You can live without using the freaking keyboard. Anyways just listen to what your boss says and stop being a giant faggot. I requested to bring my keyboard to work and they declined the request which is fine cause I never expected them to be ok with it.
Lol, what kind of company is this?
What about "hey can you use a different one, this one's pretty loud and distracting for others".
But really, he should have known that they're too loud.
Does someone have a decibel comparison between blues, browns (not bottoming out) and rubberdomes?
>I wish to not develop feelings for inanimate objects
Maybe you need professional help, if you are actually serious about wanting to bring your own hardware to work so as not to develop feelings for office hardware.
Maybe get a quieter keyboard and stop being an obnoxious fuck and subjecting your co-workers to CLACKETY-CLACKETY-CLACKETY-CLACKETY-CLACKETY-CLACKETY-CLACKETY-CLACKETY-CLACKETY-CLACKETY-CLACKETY-CLACKETY-CLACKETY-CLACKETY-CLACKETY-CLACKETY-CLACK all fucking day long?
Ask for a $150 keyboard? How is there anything wrong with paying money for your own equipment if the premium is worth it? How are you going to explain shit like that to your boss. Most people would think you were crazy if you spent $100 of your own money on a keyboard. Heaven forbid asking them to spend $100 of their money.
not him, but you're not cool or clever for taking someone's post literally and building up a strawman argument instead of actual discussion.
Also your logical increments website is shit and all your recommendations are trash.
>Ask for a $150 keyboard?
>How is there anything wrong with paying money for your own equipment if the premium is worth it?
Go ahead. By your own equipment for your own PERSONAL use.
>Most people would think you were crazy if you spent $100 of your own money on a keyboard. Heaven forbid asking them to spend $100 of their money.
If you cannot justify a purchase, that is on you, not your boss.
What's wrong with the company issued keyboard, you fucking autists?
>oh no, a rubber dome keyboard!
>i work as an overpaid typist and my dainty little fingers can't touch pig disgusting rubber domes down!
>only the best in antiquated 1980s era keyboard technology for me!!!
>everyone has to listen to my clacking all fucking day because i'm special
Mechanical keyboard faggots don't even realize how vain and effeminate they're being by being special snowflake hypochondriacs about something as mundane as typing.
Blues are great for typing and good enough for gaming. If you do use heavy keystrokes consider getting greens, clears or Alps instead, as the popular cherry keyboards are really designed for light typing.
You are being so annoying with your memeanical keyboard people had to complain to management.
I think you should be contemplating your effect you have on your fellow wage slaves and not how injust this is to you.
You are an unfunny tripfag who gives out games to force people to like him. Nobody likes you, and you are dumb and irritating.__________________

fuck you, he's the only tripfag on this board that actually went out, created a useful thing and managed to follow through with it
Your co-workers are cunts. Mine saw my blues and unanimously loved the sound and feeling, infact, when we got computer replacements the b0ss was nice enough to drop an extra $500 on deck mx blues keyboards for everyone.
Maybe if you work in one of those cubicle offices with thousands of pajeets it would get annoying, but we love our clickiness.
depends on the keyboard. heavy keyboards are louder no matter what switch type. my coworker has blues and you can hear them across the room, but i have reds on a cherry-branded board and no one even noticed that mine's mechanical.
>people like me because i make free PC building guides
>people like me so much they'll blindly take my PC building recommendations even if I'm being paid to promote specific stores and products using referral links, regardless of their actual quality.
Thanks for the information, I'll admit I may not have known all the facts.
If that's true, then yes, he is a hack; thanks anon.
It's entirely up to preference, and there's no "proper" switch for a specific purpose. If you like tactile Cherry MX switches, nothing beats blues and greens. Even browns and clears aren't as tactile as them.
The only thing to be aware of about blues is that the reset point is slightly higher than the actuation point, which isn't suitable for games that require double tapping a lot.
Also, pay no attention to the tripfag. He's good at parroting whatever /g/ says, but his own opinions are shit Tbh.
Just tell the faggot you have finger joint problems and if he'd like to replace your filch with a silent real force that's fine with you Then proceed to walk away and ignore him but leave a piece of paper with a link to one on it
Clears' bump isn't as crisp as blues or greens, hence it's quite easy to miss if you're typing very hard. It's very evident in the force diagrams: clears have a large round bump while blues and greens have more of a sharp peak.
But yes, topre is more tactile than clears, which is why I'm about to get a Realforce.
