I am DVCHAN also known as Dustin Vang from my youtube channel. I have always been a tech fanatic. From tearing apart toys to building my first Custom computers in middle school with spare server parts I found in the trash for Counter-Strike. I have always been profoundly interested in the way things work and how to make them my own. Recently I was introduced to the custom keyboard world without knowing how far and deep I would engulf myself with its perfection of imperfection. For months I read post after post on Reddit and watched youtube videos over and over until I felt I was ready. I built my keyboard and I haven’t stopped thinking about them since. \
While building computers in the early years was something that was a rare occurrence it soon became very mainstream. I really appreciated the growth and newfound respect for the PC master race but I also felt the personal touch I used to have on my PC builds wasn’t as rewarding as it once was. So far I have built custom USB cables, tofu60, kbd8x MkII, 2x Kbd67mkii, rebuilt my CM storm quickfire and converted to QMK, built discipline65 and many other budget keyboards. I still haven’t filled my thirst for more :). I just enjoy the ability to build and make things complete and perfect similar to the way you can build a computer. My favorite thing about keyboards is there is no perfect way to build them. Perfection is always based on preference. To the builder, it is up to them what makes it perfect or satisfactory. I have been sharing my builds on youtube and even with all the toxicity that comes with youtube, there has been nothing but friendly community members showing love and appreciation. It’s a great feeling to be apart of something so good.
Thanks for this awesome hobby, Covid-19 knocked a lot of us back but this hobby definitely helps to get through things a lot better.
