Mechanical keyboards are something I’ve been considering for a while, my current keyboard the logitech wave is decent but when I try to type fast with it the keys get stuck and the build quality feels flimsy..so next keyboard will be mechanical, the Thermaltake meka G1 seems interesting.

Podcast fun

http://isbw.murlafferty.com/ — the “I should Be Writing” podcast (“It’s a podcast for the wanna-be writer, someone who had always wanted to write but just hadn’t for… whatever reason.”) seems quite interesting, haven’t listened to this much yet though.

http://www.sfsignal.com/archives/category/podcast-2/  The SF Signal podcast (one which I listen to often).

http://www.swordandlaser.com/  Sword and Laser is another good podcast.

 

Enjoy.
