Someday I'll put some really enlightening code here. You will be astounded. You will toast my ingenuity. We'll have beers together. We'll realize we don't really have anything in common aside from coding Perl and downgrade our relationship to email-only. I'll eventually stop responding to your emails and we'll drift apart. But we'll always have the code that I posted here.

[ambrus]: 1nickt: for some reason, these days they call every computer "gaming", even ones that gamers wouldn't buy. I've bought a keyboard that was labelled "gamer", despite that it has hard springs and seems to be way better for typing than for gaming;
[1nickt]: I though the gamers like that because they bash the keys so hard.
[ambrus]: and I've seen motherboards with no fast expansion ports for a video card but built-in hardware RAID advertized as "gaming".

[ambrus]: 1nickt: my impression is that the gamers like the softer springs, because fast reaction time is more important to them then feedback from keypresses to recognize typos.
[1nickt]: Ah, I see. I did read some gamer mag reviews, and yes, they lamented the fact that laptops with no discrete video card are sold as "gaming" hardware.
[1nickt]: But, they do have red keyboard backlighting! And gargoyles on the front, or words like "Maxxx" here and there. They know their demographic!
[1nickt]: True gamers don;t buy Dells, HPs, or Lenovos, I think ;-)
[ambrus]: The keyboard I bought doesn't have backlighting. I specifically had to select for that, because so many keyboards these days have lights. Why would I want lights in the keyboard? I want lights in the room, such as on the ceiling, not in the keyboard.
