Funny how you forget these things sometimes, untl you find yourself using something else.

I've gotten very accustomed to the back/forward buttons on my Logitech M570 trackball. Yesterday I sat down at another system and, aside from having to use a mouse and a crappy chiclet keyboard, I kept reaching for the back/forward buttons that weren't there. For an afternoon I had to get reaccustomed to using Alt + left or right arrow instead.

I have gone without my Das Keyboard for months now. I should buy
another one just for work.

I'm at the office today (not my home office, the one actually in one of our buildings) and am typing this message on a genuine IBM Model M keyboard. And I'm experiencing something I never thought I'd find: after a year of typing on my Das Keyboard with Cherry MX Blue switches, the Model M actually feels a bit mushy.

I know, I probably lose all sorts of nerd creds for even thinking this. But at least I'm not a faux-nerd like Randall Munroe.

You should be beaten to death with the Model M.

Probably. Most of my M's are in pretty bad shape, though, and I really do like the MX Blue keys. They're probably the closest we can get to a true successor to IBM's buckling springs. (I've heard the Unicomps are not built anywhere close to IBM quality.)
