1. The lounge is for the CodeProject community to discuss things of interest to the community, and as a place for the whole community to participate. It is, first and foremost, a respectful meeting and discussion area for those wishing to discuss the life of a Software developer.
The #1 rule is: Be respectful of others, of the site, and of the community as a whole.
2.

This is about file systems in general, although with a primary emphasis on NTFS:
If you are expecting to stor a huge number of files - in the order of 100 k or more - on a disk, is there any significant advantage of spreading them over a number of subdirectories (based on some sort of hash)? Or are modern file systems capable of handling a huge number of files in a single level directory?`
If there are reasons to distribute the files over a series of subdirectories, what are the reasons (/explanations) why it would be an advantage?
Is this differnent e.g among differnt FAT variants, and with NTFS?
A while ago I dropped half a mug of coffee over my cheap USB keyboard and of course it died. Been given a Corsair K68 RGB, a mechanical keyboard (+ non spill mug). Sturdy keys, good for bulk typing. So, few days ago, the unthinkable happened - I dropped a full mug of coffee on the new keyboard.
..and it still works, without flaws. There's an anti-spill rubber between the keys and the internals, and there's a metal covering under that which protects the electronics. I'm convinced that nothing is idiot proof and I will find a weak spot, but for now, I'm pretty impressed. It's easily taken apart and cleaned and might actually last longer than a year.
Really boring - a MS 600 I bought after my Logitech died. And I only got the Logi because after 20 years of abuse the keytop legends had nearly all worn off and Herself complained that she didn't know where the letters were ...

AntiTwitter: @DalekDave is now a follower!
I recently replaced a cheap Logitech keyboard with a Logitech Craft - certainly not among the cheaper ones.
My experience with it is limited to a couple weeks. There is no doubt that I am now typing significantly faster. My subjective impression is that I am making fewer typing mistakes as well.
One positive thing I did not expect: Even though the keys have a significant stroke length, my typing is almost perfecty quiet! (My ex would have loved it - she was frequently complaining about the terrible noise from my keyboard! - but that is long ago.)
It takes a little while to get accustomed to a new keyboard. For me: The top button in the rows above the arrow keys is no longer insert / home / PageUp - they are in the second row. The top row switches between up to three different computers that the keyboard may be connected to, wirelessly. I certainly appreciate and make use of that option, but it takes a little while to adjust your fingers to hit the right key when there is a new row of them!
Bottom line: The replacement is great, and ceratinly worth the money for the upgrade.
