I recently got some older keyboards (M0116, Monterey KB108) and I really like the switches, but I just hate the layout. I know I can use converters or software to remap the keys but I also can't get over how much I like smaller layouts like hhkb or planck. I want to harvest the switches for a proje...

off-topic: I never got round to learning Python: I've often thought I should, or maybe Ruby, Python is very much worth learning as a language for quick prototyping. It's trivial to learn - I was able to read and fully grok the most complex python project available at the time (twisted) within 48 hou...

There are flat coils with usb-c and -micro adapters going for a couple bucks retail in the Middle Kingdom. My guess is any bog-standard charge controller would work with them. The benefit would be being able to position them anywhere, flat against the case.

Another one I'm curious about, it's a Miniterm 1203s (late 70s) dumb terminal with dot matrix readout.

The FCC id of D7P6QV0001 that I found on the same listing points to Oak. The switches look very much like the switc...

Does it feel nice though?
No idea, saw this on fleabay and was curious.

I would really like a pointing device like this; where you don’t have to take your hands off the keyboard. One of the things that I do not like about the rollermouse is the size. My work keyboard is a ...

I haven't tried the Red yet, primarily because I like the thinner, enclosed Pro/Pro2/Pro3 style roller, but none of these designs is suitable for gaming that requires quick, precise mousing. I've never had cursor drift. I did, however, have massive issues with sensitivity and initial friction. On ev...
