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

I know that you find that thumb trackball mice are not that accurate but I want to counter that statement with the new Logitech MX Ergo . This is a daily driver at work and use it for very fine micro movements. I did have to replace the standard ball that came with the mouse for a Perixx Peripro-303...

Re: [WTB] NMB Space Invader Keycaps

I have a full set of ISO DEC style. I don't know what set you are trying to match originally because not all caps were made using the same colourway. If you can post a picture of the caps that you currently have I can see what I have that matches.

Re: Stuff I got in China (Poll)

The Televideo 955 is really clean (actually all the boards you posted look nice)! If it was the 1-eyed space invaders, I'd ask you to keep it (someone recently reached out to me looking for those switches). I had a chuckle seeing this on ebay BIN for $199 https://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-TELEVIDEO-...

While I think this is decent for some people it doesn't cover a lot. There is a lot of boards out there that use other terminal protocols and then you have to fall back to a simple logic analyzer. The other protocols beside AT/XT is where the community needs help and there is not enough people/time ...

I think some manufacturers use a Taiwanese era-date. Year 80 is ~1991.
This is correct, a lot of keyboards are made in Taiwan and WYSE was one of them.

Re: Keycaps: UK ISO Cyrillic a thing?

Yes they are a thing. Strangely enough though the only ones that I have found are handmade.

You might want to try to replicate these, they are carved into the plastic somehow drilled maybe and then infilled with ink/paint.

I saw an update to the "Cruciformer" GB/IC that said it supports Nexus sliders. Have these also been found to crack keycaps? I was confused when I read it but cant find much info.
Nexus slides can crack keycaps because they were based on box stem dimensions.
