No idea. He hasn't been active anywhere since March. There is a parallel DataHand clone project being done by OldDataHands. He's got a working prototype already.

The MassDrop-is-evil tangent, while interesting, was a distraction in a thread that was trying to focus on supporting the Ergodox project.

FWIW to you guys, I threw this together last year as I happen to be repairing an M at the time.

Everything appears to be in order. It's a pity that the standard SPH kit does not have the 1-unit "0" and "+" for the num pad like all of the other standard kits. I did not notice this at the time. Oh well. They are nice to type on and look good. They would be even better if they were textured. 8-)

Re: Smartphone wanted / but don't know which :-(

I think Nexus edition means that it will get the newest android release as fast as other nexus devices directly from google. All "Nexus Edition" means is that the interface is relatively close to stock Android and the device is unlocked. The software and upgrades will come from Samsung. Will it com...

Wow, this went from a boilerplate GH bashing thread to anti-U.S. bigotry (classy) and finally to Stalin. Not quite Godwin's law, but you certainly go through the motions.

Nice. Taken as a ratio of the number of registered members, that is pretty good.

If we make assumptions about matching user ID's between the two sites, we could probably get a rough idea of the size of the "active" community.

It's honestly a relief to hear this acknowledged. You're quite right: I haven't evidence of this happening especially recently.

Bit rot shouldn't be happening in this day and age. Not on open internet forums with a viable user base. But at GH, for whatever reason, it still does. Good stuff just goes away.

The arrow lines in Round 3 where too thick. Now, they made them extra thin. They definitively have zero feeling for aesthetics! Can't argue that. The downside of the thin lines is that the text apears darker and the contrast is lower, so the legends are not so visible as they should. When ypou rece...

Wouldn't we have had then had to pay legend fees for all of those? You should have just had them made with the small cutter so they would at least be consistent. :?

Everything pointed out so far is pretty typical of SP using the Wyse legends. Most of the legends are crammed way to the left. Especially the keys in CamelCase like modifiers and the nav cluster. The tab key is an exception and has been brought up in the past. If you choose their normal Tab legend t...

That is the heart of any hob...
