    I don't see why backlit though, other than aesthetics (sure you should know your keyboard well enough not to even see them by now?)

    My PC is in my front room, I don't like bright lights at night time, I have used a backlit keyboard for years and don't intend to change now, nothing to do with aesthetics as it happens, this is one of my major pre-requisites when buying a keyboard, Lycosa has been old faithful for 2 years and before that Saitek Eclipse :cool:

    Just stick some glow strips to locate your keyboard, and let your fingers do the rest :D

    I rarely if ever turn on the lights on my G11 (granted, the lights are next to useless unless the room is totally dark)

    My input for today:

    We should follow US suit and hold a vote for the decriminalization of cannabis...
     
    KieX and UbErN00b say thanks.

    Its not like the police cares much about cannabis anyway, I have seen people smoking big fat fags puffing it into the police and get away with it.

    You just need to be on the same wavelength...

    Exactly, for once we need to follow suit with the inferior nation.

    True. But i'm more for buying ease. Rather than a dealer, have a shop. Cuts out the bad prices, weights and violence.

    Bad price and shit measurements I agree, but never met any violence yet.

    Accidently? You know you can cancel the order/return the item/s under the distance selling regulations act don't you, or was that just your way of saying you wanted two of them. :p

    I can hardly believe the 'accidentally' part - If it was truely accidental then you could have cancelled the order within 5 seconds before they actually had time to process it.


    Lets face it, you really really wanted those cards otherwise you wouldnt have gone through checkout with them!

    Oh hell yeah. I wanted them bad. Just a case of clawing the money back with three of the six game vouchers they come with and selling the old cards!
