No vector :( Vector = best weapon . vector + kar98k + pan is the best setup :D Takes longer to reload it than it takes to empty a clip. I never really want to use a Vector unless I have an extended quickdraw mag for it. Best combo is kinda situation dependent, but in general I'm more of an M16A4/Ka...

I almost forgot that Canadians also get the short end of the stick with this. Using some Toronto zip code, shipping of the Pingmaster would still be US $46.22, which is even more ridiculous than US $57.62 to Germany, considering the US and Canada are right next to each other… Because of this, shipp...

Such a beautiful, unique keyboard. The Honeywell colorway has to be one of my favorites, and that keyboard is just gorgeous.

Range has never been an important characteristic in my book. I've done a flex fuel conversion on my car so that I can run E85 fuel, which is cleaner (more corn-based) and every so slightly less expensive but nets me 30% worse mileage (but more power)! Electric cars are cool, but the upfront cost is ...

No I put the plug into a DB9 breakout board and wired it up to the Pro Micro. The plug is quite large for what it is (which is why I thought it might be possible), but it's not large enough on the inside to house the Pro Micro. You could take out the 2 screws from the plug and dismantle it to save ...

By that, do you mean that you integrated it into the (rather large) DE-9 plug that can be opened, as you mentioned in your second post?

Yokay, so I got mine yesterday and the experience was fantastic. Still waging whether or not I want to go the Pro Micro or Teensy route.

Any idea what the production dates of these keyboards are? Perhaps it's printed on the PCB? I haven't got a chance to split her open yet.
