Re: Great/Interesting Finds

Can anyone estimate age of these Tipro terminal keyboards, I am wondering are these vintage cherry blacks or not? Both boards seems cheap, 20 euros each? https://www.njuskalo.hr/image-w920x690/tipkovnica-mis/cherry-mx-black-switchevi-slika-102595165.jpg One is K160 M2400 model and other one being K...

By far the ugliest board I've seen,but I do love that the owner uses it,the notches on the keys for the Numpad layer are a very nice touch.

Re: Does Your Ideal Mouse Exist?

My perfect mouse would be the Logitech G502 with the G600's 12 side buttons. I am in awe of those who can navigate more than two side buttons on a mouse! I play a lot of World of Warcraft,so I've had a lot of time to adapt,makes gaming so much easier with the bulk of your abilities under your thumb.

Swill has a plate builder if you are not aware about it by some strange chance.
This is probably it: http://builder.swillkb.com/
There is a lot of discussion about it on geekhack.
I never used it myself.

I used it to design the top plates for my BFO-9000,it's pretty easy to use.

Re: How about splitting the space bar, with equal-sized symmetrical halves?

Ok, but then what? There's not much point to split the space bar if both keys will produce the same characters. Typically, the left space bar is remapped to be Backspace. Others have taken a liking to putting Tab there. What would I do? Me being me, I press the space bar with my left thumb exceedin...

Licenses are per computer,so it shouldn't be much of an issue,plus if it doesn't authenticate you just lose the ability to set a wallpaper while you program the board.

If you don't want to maintain a second system to program a Tipro board you can grab a copy of 32 bit Win 10,then use WinToUsb to make a bootable USB3.0 drive,then just boot into that drive and program the board. It's a bit of a pain in the butt but it works.
