I thought I'd do a bit of marketing here... :oops:

Massdrop has the L-Trac-X in the 1600 dpi variant available now, and it's the best way I've seen to get it to Europe. It's on for 119 plus 8 dollars shipping. Haven't seen it that cheap anywhere else, if I've missed some place, let me know!

An update of the Kinesis Advantage would be nice! It's pretty old now as you say. If I were to list the changes I'd like: * palm keys (i've modified mine to have palm keys, can't live without them now) * split it up (i also use an ergodox from time to time, it's nice to have it in two halves) * anot...

Nice! Yes, you need to push the button on the teensy the first time, so make sure the layout you load has a key (preferably in some layer) that programs the teensy, so you can do it without the actual teensy button going forward. I drilled some holes in my top cover, just in case I need to push tha...

I got mine two days ago, I did most of the soldering yesterday but there's plenty left to do... I've go the aluminum case and it's far from a perfect fit, in the end I'll probably end up spending more time shaping the case then soldering. Happy to do it though, the end result looks promising! :)

bjarven, congratulations on a fine looking keyboard! Very happy to see you did the mod, you even put the buttons in a better position than I did! Thanks!

This might be interesting... Could you accomodate alternative layouts? I'm interested in colemak, I guess I only need two extra keys with 'nubbins', T and N, since the rest is all the same when they have identical slope. I'd use it on a ErgoDox. :)

Done! It was quite easy with a stepped drill bit. Unfortunateny I don't have a soldering iron (yet, it's in the mail...) so the cables connecting the buttons were just taped on. They worked for a while but I think they've fallen off now that I've moved the keyboard. So now they're just sitting there...

Could always have an EU person be the recipient of multiple Massdrop kits as long as they would combine shipping. A GB within a GB!

About the extra pcbs, I see a option for them when I try to buy? But I don't see any prices for them so I emailed them about it. Too bad that there are no brown switches though :( I'll probably get one with blues and one without, and then get some browns from 7bit if the blues are not to my liking. :)
