Nope, completely different mindset. You have to overcome reflexes and habits from controller. You are going from a unified device for all input to a split device that disconnects movement kb/m.

I play with my keyboard at 45° and it feels completely different than typing.
Also my dpi for gaming is 400 while my work is 1600.

I switched from controller in August of 2018.

We all do.

You do understand I'm saying going from KB/M to controller might be harder? Based on the fact we never touch controllers in daily life but use mice and keyboards.

All I'm saying. Not saying it isn't a problem.

For me it all depends on the game and engine. I also stay low but not that low.

Wow, what kind of games do you play? I'm always at 1000 and I thought that was considered low nowadays.

Oh I see. I thought you meant the other way as it would be easier to go to KB/M as we use the KB/M everyday.

Shooters. FPS and Fortnite.

You must be a wrist player. If you used your arm instead, you couldn't handle 1000 dpi most likely.

When I tilt my keyboard, I have about 1.5 ft of mouse space.

Yes that is what I'm saying.

When do I ever pick up a controller? We don't in life.

I would think going KB/M would be easier than going to controller.

Can't wait to build a new desk. Not until a new house. Hopefully we start this year.

Okay, let this be known that I hate tVerge and Vox Media. However, I do love Nilay Patel and was a big Joshua Topuslky fan until he went socialist.

Never the less it is a decent article on the 1st ever RasPi store. I really think the fun we have with computers becomes even better when you can bring it to life in the real world. I'm really having with SBCs, not just Pi SBCs.



tVerge - Raspberry Pi opens its first dedicated store

Raspberry Pi — makers of everyone’s favorite miniature computers — has opened its first physical retail store today in Cambridge, UK, via VentureBeat. Previously, if you wanted to buy a Raspberry Pi, you probably got it online from Amazon or an authorized Pi reseller, like Adafruit, but physical stores in which to buy them remained few and far between.

I've been wanting to do something with Pi but have never found anything to do.

Do you have pets, plants, high volume foot traffic, hate ads or want a Google assistant without the tracking?

There is a project for anything.

I don't like ads but don't get them

I have pets but not sure what I would need

Plants outside on timed sprinkler

I use Alexa

Well I guess it fills your needs, so can't yuck your yum.

I'm just not a fan of all that data collection. Alexa and Roku boxes are really noisy. Even worse than Android phones on networks.

I track the movement of the sun with a RasPi for my sheds solar panels position. Silly things like that but I've noticed a difference in power esp during this winter month.

Also took down my home security panel and replaced with a Pi. IDK, simple stuff but the projects and learning are fun.

Alarm clocks and wake up lights are usually a decent starting point.

I don't mind the data collection.

The solar panel thing is really cool.

The security panel is interesting. Is it able to connect to a monitoring company?

If it's just 2 weapons, I use E and R. In fortnite, I use ERCXZ. The numbers are just too weird for me to use. I only use the 4 for traps.

For sea of thieves, I just use the scroll wheel as it's a low stress game.


Since I mainly play PUBG, Squad and R6 I need the Q&E to lean. I will do my best to use the keyboard but sometimes it's easier "if you're in a pinch" to use the scroll.
