Hi all, Merlin here! You may know me as merlin36 on reddit or merlin64 on geekhack. With a new forum comes new chances to getting the name you want without adding digits or extra characters to the end! LOL.
I’ve been part of the community since about 2015, but have been lurking in and out of the many forums since about late 2013, early 2014.
My first mechanical keyboard was an IBM Model M i picked up from the local recycling store. After annoying the hell out of my coworkers I figured it was time to pick up my first modern mechanical. In 2015, I picked up a KUL ES87 from intelli78. It sported the most tactile stock MX switch in the world for quite some time along with Tai-Hao Olivetti doubleshot keycaps. I was living the dream of end game! But that didn’t last long.
These days I’m an active member of the QMK Firmware community, I have a small but growing keyboard related YouTube channel: MechMerlin, and I’ve even run a few GBs here and there.
I hope to see people at future meetups, most especially the upcoming Seattle one on July 28th! If not, I’ll see you all on the internets!
