Re: has the trackball landscape changed in any way lately?

The trouble with "scroll mode switch" is that it hurts your hand after extensive use. I don't know any cases where you need to move the mouse pointer and scroll at the same time, but it's fun to do! I have rigged-up an old Logitech Marble Trackball "Mouse" with Hasu's TMK USB to USB converter hardwa...

Re: Unicomp SSKs are coming later this year

Last year I got a Unicomp Classic 104 White Buckling Spring PS2 with the custom 103 key mod. It's attractive and extremely crisp to type on. It doesn't have the weird plate covering up the area where the optional trackball button would have gone. Full disclosure: it's really more beige than white an...

Re: Defective Matias Quiet Click switches

If they're from a Matias Pro keyboard with the Mac option symbol legends, then I'd be interested in the keycaps.

USB Input Device Remixes

I thought it might be fun to remix USB signals from existing input devices into "new" ones. I used Hasu’s great TMK USB to USB converter hardware ( https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=69169.0 ). I also adapted his tmk_keyboard firmware by adding another converter directory and one tiny, opt-in edit...

Re: //gainsborough's sale thread

You can hack Compose key functionality into macOS without any special extensions: http://www.webaugur.com/computers/58-mac-sun-keyboard.html I find it useful for quickly entering some special characters that I can't remember the option combo for, or that don't have one. On my trusty 101-key Model M ...

My Christmas-time work setup: a white Leopold FC900R keyboard with black Cherry MX switches and mixed-and-matched white, red & green Tai-Hao ABS keycap sets. Custom-made pine display stand.

Happy Holidays!

Unicomp seems to offer a lot of parts & other stuff that aren't listed on their website. I'd contact them. I like Unicomp keyboards a lot, and I agree that 1.25U bottom row modifiers are best. But I'm not a fan of the Spacesaver M in particular because I don't like that I have to hold down Fn to use...
