    I do it for desk space. I'm  usually reading a book or writing at my desk, plus I have a plant and usually a cup of tea. So I like having a small keyboard I can just push up to the corner of my desk and not worry about it falling off. It's 4 rows, including the numbers, and has insert and delete which is nice, but home and end are function keys which is not very nice. I think I'd go with 5 rows if I were buying a new one--my Thinkpad keyboard is like ideal for me. But I got this magicforce one because it was <$40 iirc.

    Please do, that sounds pretty cool!


    Hyeah~, looks like the card was DoA. I can't get any sorta output from it via HDMI, even with the correct drivers.

    That's fine, though. I've already got a dual boot set up, and trying to use a VR headset with the virtual machine would be a can of worms.
