Re: Unicomp SSK delayed, new Model M design coming

Yeah, and you can choose to skip the right-side Win key entirely by paying the $10 103-key customization fee, but I agree that should just be the default, and it shouldn't cost any more.

Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

pandrew and I found a bug with the last column for the F77 which is now fixed and works great. The auto calibration works perfectly as long as you don't accidentally press any keys while plugging the board in / powering it on. The auto calibration is "binned" across different areas of the board, so ...

Re: Unicomp SSK delayed, new Model M design coming

I can’t deal with the right windows key being next to the space bar instead of the alt key. Yes you can swap blah blah blah. I have a beige Ultra Classic from 2006 that has the correct layout with alt keys adjacent to the space bar on both sides, and this is the one true bottom row layout. If they c...

Re: IBM 5251 Beamspring Xwhatsit converter problem.

As a follow-up, I've been working with pandrew to load the QMK firmware on one of my boards, and I confirmed with him that his QMK implementation does much more sophisticated capsense auto calibration than xwhatsit's original firmware. The board automatically calibrates on power-up (requires that no...

Re: IBM 5251 Beamspring Xwhatsit converter problem.

What I mean is, does QMK implement capacitive switch sensing in a way that is fundamentally better than the implementation in xwhatsit firmware?

Re: IBM 5251 Beamspring Xwhatsit converter problem.

I've heard people mention QMK on xwhatsit, but it isn't clear to me what about QMK is better. Does QMK solve some capsense algorithmic problems that exist in xwhatsit's firmware?

Re: IBM 5251 Beamspring Xwhatsit converter problem.

I had this same problem trying to restore a 3178 and gave up. I even tried a different xwhatsit board thinking I may have damaged my first one somehow. I took the keyboard completely apart, cleaned everything, put it back together and still had the same symptoms. One solvable thing that can cause pr...

Is the foam used in these new Model Fs a type that won’t rot over time? Especially for the First Aid kits you’re selling with parts and foam for the future, it would be sad to find that your replacement foam was rotten by the time you needed to use it.
