The appeal of mechanical keyboards doesn't seem to be just the "feel", for whatever definition of "feel" you might have
You clearly hear a sound and your fingers get the sensation of bottoming out at almost the same time
This reinforcement probably works in the same way as in free writing: There's some principle of synesthesia at work to get your creative juices flowing
It's entirely possible to be creative with a "silent" keyboard, but you probably have other stimuli around
i love it when programs crash when im trying to exit them. it's like, you can't fire me, i quit
@cypnk After years of working in news, I have concluded the sad fact that media companies are viewed as solely money making operations by investors who 'pump and dump'. They pump money in to bring up its valuation, write off debt, and then sell for a profit. Ownership changes hands frequently among news outlets (Tribune, Sinclair, Media General).
There is no physical product to sell (not talking print) like consumer goods, so there is less regulation when it comes to quality of the product.
in some parts of East London and nearby areas of England (which have also historically had strong ties with both South and East Asia) "a cup of char" (sometimes shortened to to a "cuppa") was common slang and is still heard when those of late middle age and seniors are talking: Younger people usually drink "tea" unless they are psy-trance loving hippies 😆 where "chai" is used for certain special varieties..
