Re: [Giveaway] The Boneshaker (NMB PC-122)

That's a cool board.

I look forward to clean the switches so it's no longer a scratchy mess :mrgreen: .

- the spy doesn't show international threads anymore (sorry guys)
Can I ask why?
this is pretty bad because they don't get much traffic (at least the portuguese one) and the spy really helped.
I'll probably miss almost all posts there now.

Bem, mesmo para escrita não acho necessário ter o ! e o ? em acesso directo.
Em português não faz mt sentido a tecla morta para o ` (usada apenas em "à" e "àquela" ) ser directa e o ~ não.
Eu preferiria ter o Ç apenas no alt gr do C e usar essa tecla como ;/:

Ideia interessante.

Ou não os estou a a ver ou faltam os caracteres º e ª que são bastante importantes.

Não sei se o foco em programadores será muito realista. Parece me melhor que o PT mas continua a ser pior que UK (precisar de shift para ; e [ e { em alt gr).

Weirdly the "trend" to "destroy" keyboards started on deskthority: https://deskthority.net/workshop-f7/f-ssk-t10744.html Back then it was celebrated on deskthority, these days we just point with the finger on different communities and blame them for being evil.

Nice.

On ISO you could also leave F where you are and move J two spots to the right, together with a angle mod it gets you a center cluster of 7 symbols usable by either hand. The down side is it fucks the number row up unless you also have a split backspace.

At this point I don't really get why you "review" anything that's not traditional staggered qwerty. You don't like them and don't seem to give them much of a chance, fine, no need to make a 8 minute video calling a keyboard bad because you never learned to use it. It's as if you "reviewed" a kitchen...

Nice find! How does the scrollwheel thingy work? Do you just click the button and then moving the mouse around scrolls? I've found a couple of WMOs in second hand shops but nothing like this. Thanks!

Why would a company pay more than 30k to keep a forum running at loss? Will Bright answered that question. Whether or not you believe what he says will, I imagine, depend entirely on your own feelings towards MassDrop in general. I've observed that among those with a strong opinion of MassDrop, not...

Point of clarification: MassDrop plans to support GH financially, but has no interest in "running" it administratively (they are leaving that to the existing admins/mods).

I don't blame iMav not at all. No matter what company buys it, you have to keep your eyes open and look out for things. Well, given how things went down and how the community had no chance in hell to keep up... it's a pretty shitty deal. I wonder how the site will be squeezed for money now. He'd as...
