Just wanted to say thanks for reconsidering the thread name font — it's much less fatiguing on the eyes as it is now. Keep up the good work!
Indeed its much better now :).

We just now need to get rid of the silly title above each post !

Re: Cleaning a plate without removing switches

MX are pretty dust proof , alps less so but if there is a high level of dust on the plate chances are your stripping the alps switches anyway to clean them inside. Space invaders for the first attack i would honestly leave the caps on and use the super thin attachment on the datavac.

Re: Cleaning a plate without removing switches

I know people may be a bit worried about blowing dust into the switches but a good tool is a datavac https://www.amazon.co.uk/Metro-220-240-DataVac-Electric-Duster/dp/B003BZCOKK it is very powerfull and will get all the dust form the plate very quickly ( even without removing the caps !) So its good...

Re: [Help] Ways to make a cheap case feel/sound more sturdy?

I put in quite thin soft foam but several layers of it , use the case fixings themselves to slightly compress the foam So your making a sandwich between the PCB and case. This helps quite a bit ! The foam stops the echo inside the case and the fact the foam is pushing on the case reduces movement , ...

There's just so much customization that you can do this way, but you are 100% sure that everything is going to work. That said... I'm still not 100% sure we should keep usin...

USB2 gives you only 2.5 W. That would not be enough for LCDs.
They would be limited to USB3 with Power Delivery.

Normal LCDs yes, not sharp memory LCDs , they as little as 6 µW to show a static image and use about 50µW when updating an image.

Re: e-ink keyboard (The Sonder Scam)

Its an interesting idea.

But would they not be better with sharp memory LCDs ? The contrast will be way better.

I can replicate but error log is completely empty, so I'm not really sure what is causing this. It will be hard to fix without an error trace.
I would just disable that form the list then , more concerned people getting locked into it and not being able to access the wiki

Re: DT Update Log and TODO

Few minor wiki errors.

If you select the Modern theme then you get an internal error.
The icon is messed up on the mono book theme ( i much prefer this theme as the info is more compact.)

Re: DT Update Log and TODO

yeah I noticed that, unfortunately phpbb works with "post subjects" and not "topic titles", we were using an extension that took care of zeroing the post subjects and always use the topic title instead. I agree that limiting extensions is something we want to do ( and something you want to do for a...
