I’ve been reading about Cherry MX switches for a few years now and never took the time to read up on what the big deal was. The only mechanical keyboards I’ve used were an old Tandy thing and a bunch of the Apple ][ boards at school. They were all obnoxiously loud, echoing things that I didn’t care for as a kid, but as a child I wasn’t much of a typist anyway so my childhood opinion shouldn’t matter much today.

What’s the deal with mechanical keyboards?

I just noticed that the site title’s drop shadow gets cut off on the left and right side. This annoys me now that I see it so I’ll have to fix it somehow. I’m not sure what the actual fix is, but I’m going to guess it’s something to do with the width of the title element vs the width of the text+drop shadow style effect.
