Just a quick note (perhaps redundant), but in the PM inbox you can sort messages by author, yet in the sent folder you can't (sort by adressee).. and seeing there's no search as far as I've found, that makes it pretty nasty to find that one message you want!

Damn it's really starting to look great (and near completion)! For anyone jumping in, the wickedawesome case prototype pics are here and here . Personally I think the white case looks better than when painted black. If I somehow come across a wad of money/steady income in the near future, I'll be re...

(just got my first kid). Oh baby!! pun intended Congrats, looks like I checked back in just in time. ;) On the latest mod, from a quick look it seems as indeed the tenkey area is safe to lop off, yet I'd advise actual tracing in a drawing program just to make sure; and my safest bet would be to kee...

Sad to say, I bailed. Five minutes before the hammer.

Ah, I thought it was the naildamage someone inflicted on the right CTRL (and Enter) caps (see third pic).

Not having a Model F incoming any time soon, but I'm curious: you seem set on using the standard typewriter-stagger, instead of a matrix or symmetrical stagger.. Is it that you don't like those, or that it would probably require buying more keycaps, or that it would be 'harder to market', or? Great ...

then again, quickfire rapid for $80.88 doesn't sound like a bad deal when you can either just pick it up on the way home or have it delivered (next day?) quickly..

*edit: ^To me, from the other side of the pond. :? Expecting to see stores here charge E80 makes $80 sound good, and $60 real nice.

In this case it would indeed, seeing how the trace does work intermittently.
(wouldn't really be needed, but I'm thinking leaving it intact might increase bounce slightly; basically just a feeling though)
