Gmmk tkl fits most of those criteria, and you can just turn the back lights off.

Tai-Hao Miami Key Amount Fake News by [deleted] in MechanicalKeyboards

[–]shadydentist 0 points1 point  (0 children)

By default, taihao sets come with 104 keys. They might be shown on smaller keyboards, but they come with enough for a standard full size keyboard.

They are thinner than keycaps from other manufacturers, which gives them kind of a cheap feel. That being said, they are also very inexpensive, so Tai Hao keysets are typically a pretty good value for their price, since they have double shot legends.

It's not the weight necessarily, it's the actuation distance. Speed switches actuate when you push them 1.2mm, compared with 2mm for normal switches. This makes them extremely easy to activate by accident.

Yes. The sentraq sandwich case is top mounted, so any standard 60% pcb will work.

The dz60 uses bootmagic for resetting the pcb. This means that by default, holding space + b will reset it.

Handwired Board -- Single key not functioning by evamvid in MechanicalKeyboards

If every other key in the row and column are working and the diode is the right way round, I might suspect a software issue.

The good news is that soldering it is not that complicated. There are a couple of guides out there. Here is one that I used: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W0FSvTYlggw

It's for a different form factor, but the general steps are the same. Good luck!

About buckling spring (aka who remembers the 70s?) by Srocchi in MechanicalKeyboards

[–]shadydentist 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My guess is that the spring hitting the contact would create tons of chatter. In addition, part of the reason why switch contacts can last 50 million cycles is that they have a gold layer on it that resists oxidation. However, this layer is fragile, so you wouldn't want it to be hitting another contact at such high speeds.

hello i want to buy a keycaps for my g610 keyboard by [deleted] in MechanicalKeyboards

[–]shadydentist 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The alpha keys are standard, so you should be able to buy any full set and only use the alpha keys. Tai Hao are a good budget option, you can find them for around $30 on places like Amazon and MechanicalKeyboards.com.

[help] TKL DIY Kit right now by Lurkista in MechanicalKeyboards

I don't think so, sadly. As far as I can tell, they only have the one case available.

65% keyboards aren't standardized so likely you will need to buy a kit. The tada68, kbd661, sentraq s65x, and clueboard are examples.

No, I thought you meant the physical keyboard case. Sorry, I don't know about travel cases.

Full size keyboards don't have a standard size, so there are some available, but they will only fit specific keyboards.

When you drive around in your car, does the air inside slosh around like water would in a moving container? by lovedachicken in askscience

[–]shadydentist 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Yes... but the effect is typically not that noticeable, because it's only filled with air. To give you an example, imagine a water bottle filled completely with water as compared to a water bottle filled half with water and half with air. The half-filled bottle will slosh around because you have a mixture of air and water, but the completely full bottle will not slosh very much. If you fill the water with glitter, however, you might be able to see how the water is moving, while if you fill your car with dust or something, you also might be able to see the air 'sloshing' around as the car moves.

Is it possible to break the speed of light in water or some other medium? by Justinsetchell in askscience

[–]shadydentist 40 points41 points  (0 children)

You are right, it is possible to travel faster than the local speed of light in a medium. This happens sometimes for very energetic particles, and when it does, it creates a characteristic light known as Cherenkov radiation, which is typically a nice blue glow.
